I have read 1-4 in this series and must confess that I have spent considerable time debating with myself over over or not this writer is good or bad due to the fact that she has made me want to throw my Nook down and stop reading at the antics of her characters! I finally decided that a writer that could bring a character to life enough for me to be exasperated with the character's behavior, and is so "alive" to me that I shake my head at her (Helen) everytime she does soemthing I dont like, is in fact, a TERRIFIC writer, better than most in my opinion. This writer hasmade her lead character, Helen, so vivid in my mind that, like Johnny Orion ( ther lead character and Helen's love interest), I too "know" her thoroughly! I hope to see more in this series, I would pay to read them and am stunned that a writer of this caliber is giving the books away in Nook version for free...in my opinion, these are TV series material..Excellent, wonderfully written with intriging plot line that always surprises! Best written works I have read in a long time and I love to read! I will "miss" these characters if nothing else is written in this series! A+ and worth the read!

I have now read the first three and while I like the series I too get frustrated over Helen's antics. They are sooo cliche and unbelievable that someone of Helen's education background and training still falls into the female who get's into trouble by going rouge . Too hard to believe and so not worthy of this writer or this character. I want to keep reading this series but I find that I am groaning and fast forwarding through pages upon pages of the story when this character goes off on her own to do something. It reminds me of a female character who goes off into the haunted woods to follow her lost dog but seemingly forgets t that there is a serial killer on the loose.  There is so much meat here for this character's and secondary characters story line, she has great  plot twists and  great dialogue but arrrrrgh !!! is it frustrating.Erickson could be a Cornwell's Scarpetta or Robb's Dallas but at this rate she is a discounted version of those strong type of female leads.  I want to keep reading the stories because they are good  but I wish  this writer would stop this because I just dont know how much more I can swallow. I really want to give it a four but I will do 3.7

    Terrible.  Annoying protagonist and book needs some serious editing.  I would give it less than one star, but that's not possible.  The series became so annoying to me that I found myself becoming angry while reading it.  Seems to have good potential but there are just too many characters and the main character, while supposed to be an intellect, makes the most bizarre choices!  Just doesn't read right.  I'm surprised at how many people love this series.  Maybe I am missing something????

    Great series

    I have read all 8 books in this series. Each book is a stand alone story with a thread that connects each novel together so I would recommend reading them in order as there are references to previous books. Doctor Eriksson progressively grows with each challenge and the main characters grow along side her. I found each book to be well written and well developed. The author does a fine job of wrapping up the story line so there are no loose ends. There are some editing problems but nothing too drastic.

    Could not even get through this book. Gave up about half way through. I read a lot, but this one is particularly bad.
