‘Resolutions’ by Jane Adams

Published by Severn House,
February 2010.
ISBN: 978-1-84751-242-0 (PB)

This book is exactly what it says on the cover: ‘Resolutions’.

We meet again all the residents of the strange household of sixty-something Rina Martin. It was through his friendship with Rina that DI McGregor regained some sense of balance following the killing in front of him of little Cara Evans by Thomas Peel. DI McGregor (Mac) had been unable to save her and that knowledge had almost broken him. But now almost a year on, Mac has rebuilt his life and has even entered into a relationship with CSI Mirian Hastings. But his new found equilibrium is about to be tested as he is forced to
confront his past.

And not only is Mac facing past demons, young George is now fourteen and he has also found solace with his friendship with Rina Martin, and a new friend at the children’s home, Ursula, but George is also to be tested, and Mac caught up chasing a child killer - may not be there to help him.

This is a satisfying read in that it ties up many threads from previous books, although the information is there to provide a new reader to this series with an equally rewarding read.
