'In Plain Sight, second in the DI Clare Mackay series, echoes the themes of See Them Run, Marion Todd's debut crime novel: vivid sense of place, strong female lead, authentic police procedure. The protagonists's love interest whets the appetite for more. I look forward to Book 3 in the series.' Claire MacLeary, author of Cross Purpose
