REVIEW: Exiles

At last year’s local wine festival, a mother goes missing, leaving her baby alone in the park. A year later, there is no leads on what happened. Detective Falk is in the area for a christening and he finds himself drawn into the small community, looking to put together the pieces and solve the disappearance and bring some peace to the town.

This one was a bit too slow and plodding for me. Lots of chatting with mixed up timelines that just made me a bit bored. I’m not sure if I had read the first two books if I’d have been more bought in and enamored with Falk, but he didn’t bring anything special to the story for me. There were a few decent mysteries to be solved within and all the pieces fit together nicely but there just wasn’t anything that wow-ed me.

Thanks to Booksparks for the gifted copy. All opinions above are my own.

Do you prefer reading slow-paced, realistic mysteries or fast-paced, slightly far-fetched thrillers?
