    1. I was born in Germany and educated at an English boarding school while my parents travelled the world with the British army I think the long boring plane trips home played an important part in helping me to develop my creative imagination.I settled with my parents in Western Australia in 1976, became a nurse, married young and had three children Not surprisingly, it took ten years to complete an Arts degree English lit at UWA.In 1990 my family and I moved to a small farm 40 kilometers NE of Perth Western Australia where I established a Suffolk sheep stud, reared orphan kangaroos and embarked upon a life of crime writing.

    2. This was a really enjoyable police procedural, introducing Sergeant Cam Fraser who has recently returned to his home town after some very serious misfortunes elsewhere. I liked his character very much and will be happy to read more about him in any future books.I knocked off one star for the stereotyping of many of the characters and the predictability of the story. The bad guys were really bad and the good guys were always helpful and lovable all the way. The bent cop was a terrible cliché. Th [...]

    3.

But Ruby hadn’t wanted to leave her friends in Sydney – surly and insolent, she did all she could to try her father’s patience. Cam once again buried himself in his work…Unexpectedly, a burned body was [...]

    6. Before WA based author Felicity Young commenced her extremely good Dr Dody McCleland series, she published a series of police procedural novels one of which built around the central character of Sergeant Cam Fraser in it. FLASHPOINT, originally out in 2005, has recently been re-released in ebook format.Years ago this reader did read FLASHPOINT and some of the elements remained and obviously a lot didn't (the first version of this review muddled up the Cam Fraser and Stevie Hooper series utterly [...]

    7.

But a violent, puzzling murder at an exclusive girls' college plunges him into a baffling and deadly investigation - and raises menacing ghosts from his past.

    8.

He also hopes to prote [...]

    9. I would like to thank NetGalley and HarperCollins Publishers Australia for giving me the opportunity to read this in return for an honest and open review.I haven't read many crime books set in Australia but after reading this I will certainly rectify that.I really enjoyed this story of policeman Cam who relocates in order to protect his daughter from the gang who killed his wife and son.The characters were introduced slowly, which I liked as it gave me the chance to get to know them better.The r [...]

    10. I received a copy of this from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.I must admit I picked this book to read solely from the cover, I found it intriguing, and thought if the story was half as good as the cover, than I would be fairly happy.I was not disappointed, I really enjoyed this story.It was well written and flowed freely.I fell for the lead character Cam, I just wanted to hug him.As far as the police/mystery/thriller side of things, yep it was good, I thought I had picked the [...]

    11. Cam Fraser is a former undercover officer and detective who returns to his home town of Glenroyd in Western Australia to run the small police station. He is running away from his past and to protect his daughter from those who killed his wife and son. He was expecting a quiet life but from the very beginning he finds that that is the last thing he will be having.I found this a very entertaining read and love the Australian small town country setting. The characters were captivating though some w [...]

    12. i really like this author and the setup was promisingbut the denouement was over the top: one of the suspects is suddenly exposed as the crazed obsessed psychopath murderer drug dealer who tosses a poisonous snake in the car of our hero and puts a fake kidnap note of his daughter on the windshield. I would have enjoyed a more leisurely character development and fewer spontaneous yet very complicated attacks. The timeline wasn't clear-- did it all happen with a couple days, a week? In any case, a [...]

    13. **SPOILER FREE**No surprise by this author that she puts out another well written book! This one kept the pages turned quicker than anythingSmooth sailing with the story plot that keeps you on the edge. The characters are enjoyable. The plot of the story will have you guessing and trying waiting to get further into the story to see what all ends up taking place.*Received for an honest review*

    14. Felicity Young is a new find for me. I enjoyed this book very much & really became invested in the characters, I wanted to know what happened next & was a bit disappointed when I started her next book that the characters didn't carry on.
