While I read a lot of Sci-fi, this book just didn’t flow well.
The story line, a deep space craft leaves earth on an emergency take off, as earth enters nuclear war. On board is a crew of only women. What follows is a list of challenges to overcome transportation and survival issues.
Along the way there is extensive and unnecessary sexual scenes in the story. While some of the references may have supported some character development, the majority were not required, and took away from the story.
Apart from that, the storyline and character development were good, however the story could do with some additional editing to help with cohension.

People often pick up a book, judging it by the cover. Please don't judge this book by its cover, because it is so much better than that.
The Falcon Tattoo is the second book featuring SI Joanne Stuart, an investigator on secondment to the Behavioural Sciences Unit at the British National Crime Agency.
The book is well written, with several potential suspects to keep the tension in place to the climax. The characters are well developmental, with no need to have read the first book.
Jo Stuart and her team are called in the led the investigation into a serial rapist. With suspects initially few and far between, Jo Stuart must rely on her instincts to narrow the search.
A well written police novel, that engages the reader, until the very end.
