Book Review: A Cold Day in Hell by Lissa Marie Redmond

Cold Day in Hell Lissa Marie Redmond CoverTitle: A Cold Day in Hell

Author: Lissa Marie Redmond

Genre: Mystery/Crime

My Thoughts:

This was a fairly well-written police procedural with a few interesting twists and turns and a solid cast of characters, but I thought it had a few flaws.

A few of the characters, including the protagonist, displayed some rather inconsistent behavior.

The courtroom drama portion of the story had a significantly faster pace than the rest of the novel, which got a tad slow at times, and made it feel like the book was speeding toward a conclusion.

And the ending, while a decent twist, was rather abrupt and left too much hanging for my tastes. I prefer crime novels to wrap up the primary plots better than this one did.

Overall, I think this is a pretty good debut, but there were a few places I thought it could’ve been stronger.

RATING: 3/5
