Review by Pet12
Never Forget is a really original and highly entertaining British crime procedural. It is written by an actual police officer, and that showed. The investigative work is described in great detail. The plot was logical and totally believable, and the characters were realistic. I couldn't believe that this was really the first book written by Lisa Cutts. The other thing I really appreciated was the fact that although the main character had suffered traumatically in her childhood, she was not being portrayed as the stereotypical troubled sufferer. Ok, she drinks and has boyfriend issues, but who doesn't. Still, she appears a lot more "ordinary" than your average fictional crime fighter. That made it different, and I really liked it. Another nice touch was the humor and witty banter between the characters. My one criticism would be the amount of people that were involved in the intricate plot. At times, it became confusing to keep up with the different relationships. But as this is the first in a series, I can see that it made sense to introduce all the recurring characters in depth. <br/>The audiobook version is competently narrated by Deryn Edwards. When I finished it, I bought book 2 straightaway.<br/>
