The Woman Who Stopped Traffic follows IT security consultant Natalie Chevalier as she follows the leads to of murder and corporate interference in a soon to go public, on-line, social networking firm.
With an unexpected view of the human trafficking public displayed at a corporate launch, Natalie is trust into the dark world of human trafficking and corporate politics.
This is typical murder mystery set in the 21st century, with a politically correct heroine that can outwit in the final pages the the essential bad guy.
While I may be coming jaded with the influx of b-grade novels that are not offering anything new, I found the book slow to develop.
That being said, there will no doubt be a flock of people who will buy it for the title, or the IT angle, not to mention those fans of Daniel Pembrey. One can almost see the inevitable sequel with the key characters that will lead to a series.
Overall I found myself disappointed Daniel Pembrey latest book “The Woman who Stopped
Traffic”. It was longer than necessary, and the only character with any
substance was Natalie.
