    Great Read!

    How could you not love a book that contains the line “Going out for a minute Helgi, if Johnny Depp shows up, just ask him to get undressed and wait for me would you?”

    The second installment in the Gunnhildur series “Cold Comfort,” is based in Iceland and finds our protagonist Officer Gunnhildur “Gunna” Gisladottir recently promoted to Reykjavik’s Serious Crime Unit. Along with her partner Helgi she is in charge of finding escaped convict Omar “Ommi” Magnusson. Seems Ommi is hell bent on seeking revenge on the people responsible for his stay in jail as well as being duped out of millions of kronur. Gunna is also investigating the murder of Svana Geirs, former model and television fitness star.

    The investigations become intertwined as Gunna and Helgi follow pieces of information that link the convict and the deceased. The leads begin to focus on a group of powerful public figures who are part of a “syndicate” who have been supporting Svana in the lavish lifestyle she leads and who have also been tied to a murder ten years prior.

    Bodies begin to surface as the investigations heat up and expose the details of the groups corrupt ways leaving marriages in ruins and careers destroyed until the guilty party is exposed.

    Quentin Bates masterfully works the plot replete with characters and scandals that would be found in business and government in any country. He keeps the reader entertained by humorous dialogue and guessing who the guilty party is, holding them captive until the final reveal. Definitely a must read for mystery and thriller fans alike.

    Terrible! Chaotic, rambling, difficult to follow.
