I’m not a big lover of euro noir, So I wasn’t in a hurry to read The Girl Who Broke The Rules, but after reading so many positive reviews on it, I thought I would give it a go, and I’m so glad I did.
This is a gripping thriller with a large dose of gritty realism thrown in, some readers may find the graphic nature of the crimes difficult to read, but I felt they were realistically portrayed and were in keeping with the story. Utterly compelling Marnie keeps the reader enthralled until the last page. Her characters are well written and developed. George Mackenzie is a character Who grows on you she is ballsy and not afraid to ” kick ass”, her relationship with Van den Bergen is not a typical one, and I for one can’t wait to see how their relationship progresses in book 3.
