    1. Apparently this is the second book in a series based on Detective Inspector Ned Bale, but the first one I've read. In this mystery, the British Minister of Defense is killed in a car bomb, leaving precious few clues. One of them leads to Ned's previous girlfriend Kate who is a dog handler in Afganistan looking for roadside mines. I like the unravelling of the story and the links to current events and political intrigue, but the English idioms and references often left me clueless.

    2. The Minister for Defence is blown to smithereens in his car on a lonely road in the Brecon Beacons, where he has a weekend hideaway. DI Ned Bale is on the crime scene within seconds, but neither he nor forensics can work out how on earth the crime was committed, let alone who did it, or with what motive.That is until one fingerprint is found on one tiny fragment of the explosive timing device. The fingerprint of Ned Bale's closest ally in the Force, dog handler Kate Baker. But how on earth could [...]

    3. Excellent read, with well-rounded characters and an excellent sense of place both for the English countryside and for Afghanistan. You don't need to have read the previous books, though if you have the slight mental stumbling over what a "dog tart" was that I had, would not be with you. The pace was just right, a mix of fast at the right time and pause for consideration at the right time. The main characters came across as sympathetic human beings, and the supporting cast seemed as real as anyon [...]

    4. 3.5 I like the Ned Bale/Kate Baker pairing. However the book felt a little as though it was written by two people. Part of it was straight thriller in a masculine style, but part was drippingly romantic - of the did-the-earth-move variety.

    5. The British Defence Minister is killed by a bomber and the investigation leads the police to A.I found sections of this book really good / gripping (mainly the action sequences) but whole blocks of this book had ludicrous plot points and clunky writing (hence the 3 star rating).
