From the list on suspense/crime with flawed detectives.
Who am I?
All of the books I’ve listed above have flawed characters. Characters that deal with emotional and/or moral dilemmas. The plots: murder, missing children, or runaway husbands are secondary to me. What I look for in a book and what I write about in my Cole and Callahan series, are characters with flaws. People who struggle with truth. Cops or investigators that hide or skew evidence because the truth would cause more harm than good. It’s the moral dilemma I want. The angst we all feel when we are faced with a particularly painful decision. That’s what real life is and that’s what brings a book and a character to life.
Patricia's book list on suspense/crime with flawed detectives
Why did Patricia love this book?
Get ready to hold your breath. A fast-paced, twisted, psychological thriller that manages to have characters that will tug at your heart even while holding a gun. The Family Across the Street reminds the reader that you never truly know what’s going on in your neighbor’s house or with any family that you think you know.
