Currently Reading - The Darkest Hour, Katherine Howell

I've had this book on the top of the stacks for what seems like a lifetime now, and as per usual, you start these things and leave yourself wondering what the hell you've been doing not picking it up the second it arrived through the door.

This is the second book from Howell - an ex-paramedic herself, and they provide a very unique viewpoint of crime.  From the paramedic point of view and from a very engaging female cop.  Anyway more on that when I finish the book.

From the blurb:

Paramedic Lauren Yates stumbles into a world of trouble the night she discovers a body in an inner city alley - the killer still lurks nearby.  When the murderer threatens to make her life hell if she tells the police, she believes im - he's Thomas Werner, her sister's ex and father to Lauren's niece ... and not a man to mess with.

Opening Lines:

The wind howled between the buildings like a creature from an arctic nightmare as Lauren peered into the wreck, then turned to the cop beside her.  'He's dead.'
