The Waiting Room by Catriona King (a review)

The Waiting Room - the 4th book in the to feature DCI Marc Craig and his team at Belfast Combined Crimes Unit and the best yet.

The story begins with the discovery of a young girl's body left hanging upside down and mutilated on a church altar. The girl is the daughter of a diplomat. On investigation the team discover a trail of depravity that reaches to some of the most powerful people in the Belfast area. Can DCI Craig and co. find and stop the members of the Library Club (it'll become clear!) before any more girls are killed?

Once again this is a very well told tale by Catriona King and the crime is by far the most unsettling. As in the previous books in the series what sets this apart for me is the team working on the case - they have lives outside the CCU and are people you can care about - a prime example being one of the team (I'm not saying who - SPOILERS!) has something going on that you are aware of but the details are not revealed until later on in the book - and this actually had me concerened for the character in question.

As I've said, this book is the darkest in the series, the criminals are the most despicable of people and the book is the best so far - MORE PLEASE!
