A Voice From The Field by Neal Griffin
I picked this book up on a whim and was not prepared for everything it delivered. A Voice From The Field had so many story elements I love to come across when reading. It had me excitedly looking up what else the author has written.
This is the second book in The Newberg Mystery Series. I read this book first and felt it was a decent stand alone book. The background details made me very curious about the first book and I plan to read it soon. There was also a fondness for established characters that I think returning readers will enjoy.
The story incorporates mature subject matter. Sex trafficking and exploitation play a big role in the story. The scenes are not gratuitous or overly graphic but I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone easily offended.
There was so much about the story that I enjoyed. The writing had a great flow. The characterization and police procedural details gave the story an immersive quality.
I loved how flawed the characters were. It made the ethical themes seem more authentic and dynamic.
There were so many twists to the story. I often found myself nervously looking forward to reading the book each day.
A Voice From The Field was a great read and I look forward to reading other books in the series.
