Eyeshot AUTHOR Lynn S. HightowEd her story Years later Julia thinks she sees the killer Then Julia disappears And a dangerous sociopath left undisturbed for eight years is back in business in Cincinnati `Eyeshot' is the second book in a series of four featuring Sonora Blair a female homicide detectiveWith the first book in the series having been written in 1995 Sonora Blair may have been a character before her time as she must surely have been one of the earliest female detectives to hit the crimethriller pages?Sonora Blair features in a series of just four books but I am sure that long before then her private life and career will be in complete meltdown if she carries on as she is now Which in reality is probably a fairly accurate analogy of the disastrous worklife balance endured by many members of the force the world overThere seem to be the two stereotyped images of female detectives in fiction either those who are trying desperately to juggle a workhome balance and failing miserably or those who are determinedly single and married to their job with Sonora falling into the first categoryShe is the single mother of two children; a teenage son over whom she has little or no control; a younger daughter who spends much of this case being trailed around various locations by Sonora who is unable to find care for her; and an ever increasingly complicated and uncontrollable love lifeThis is not a book for those of you who enjoy a fast moving plot full of blood and guts with multiple bodies thrown in for good measureFor the first few chapters there are a couple of suspects in the case but as the story progressess and the plot thickens it uickly becomes clear who the murderer is the story then develops around the pursuit and capture of that personThe suspect is a smooth operator who uses their position and influence to full effect in order to channel suspicion away from them whilst calculating the end game scenario which they all know is inevitable As with all characters of such a devious egotistical nature there is always someone waiting in the wings who has been humiliated and taken for granted once too often and is willing to do the right thing when presented with a suitable opportunityWhilst there was some lack of descriptive substance in the police procedural aspects of the case and the plot and outcome was somewhat predictable the narrative was on the whole well crafted The characters had plenty of depth to them whilst the local search areas were well described and set the scene wellThe character of Sonora is still being developed into this second book although I felt that a little too much emphasis is placed on her private and family life to the detriment of what is otherwise a promising detective's careerShe is a tenacious investigator but one who doesn't always play things strictly by the book meaning that her plans often backfire and therefore take a little longer to achieve She is however learning that she needs to make a stand against power prejudice and corruption from within and that intelligence and wit are her greatest weapons to help her realise her place within the team and acceptance by her male colleaguesAll in all this is a well thought out plot with a well defined seuence of events leading to the final and inevitable `end game'
