Scriptions to set a scene without being distracting a wide range of potential suspects and an intriguing mystery with the reveal of the perpetrator coming as a complete surprise to me Yes there is a reliance on coincidence which is a common feature of first time authors but it wasn t excessive Jessica is a talented and driven detective who drinks too much which is a bit of a clich but as her story is revealed my interest and sympathy both grew I liked Jason and hope that he will return in future books Violence mostly occurs off camera there is some swearing and a scene in a strip club but there is some swearing and a scene in a strip club but sexmy thanks to netgalley club but no sexMy thanks to NetGalley the arc which allowed me to give an honest reviewThin Air is available now and is still on NetGalley at the time of writing I m mixed about this book For the most part it was OK sometimes interesting but I did find it easy to put down I figured out the killer the moment the character was introduced so it was important how the investigation went that made the story work For the most part the investigation was OK There was actually some footwork involved I liked the characters of Price and his partner MedinaI thought it was extremely weird and a little too contrived that all the major players are essentially sitting in the same chair 25 years after Jessica s mother was killed Plus Jessica was a little TSTL at the end which was disappointingThe contents of the envelope from her dad was a nice touch Thin Air is an excellent thriller It kept me guessing all through. Jessica soon realizes that Pryce is hiding something about her father's checkered history and her mother's deathTo solve her mother's murder and her own disappearance Jessica must dig into the past and find the secrets buried there But the air gets thinner as she crawls closer to the truth and it's getting harder and harder to breathe. ,
