I found this title to be a bit off from my usual genre, but I was looking for something different and I found it.First, a little about the writing style. Quite interestingly enough the story comes alive with detailed, precise yet synoptic details that set the scene. The words flow quickly but in such a way that the reader is falling through the sentences with an easy comprehension. Overall very well written and the flow of words are precise and to the point without being too wordy.It’s too easy to give away subtle details that can lead to a spoiler when discussing the story. I will suffice to say that I found there to be many twists and turns, some rather powerful moments that connect us to the main character, Nita. Overall I think it’s worth the price of admission. Grab yourself a comfortable seat because once you pick up this book you’ll find yourself unwilling to put it down.An excellent experience in literal works. This title easily earned it’s place among my shelves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrill of the Chase!, January 21, 2014
When I first started reading Aya Walksfar’s Sketch of a Murder, I didn’t know fully what to expect. It’s a book with a frightening premise, not because there is a murderer killing people, but because of the reason the murders are committed. We’ve all seen the news stories of the rapist or murderer escaping punishment because of who they knew or who they could hire as an attorney and it’s something that most of us are truly disgusted by in our legal system. In Sketch of a Murder, Aya’s character The Avenger, helps open up the door in our own minds and gives us a peek at the darkness that lies within all of us. The part of us that would justify the torture and murder of another ‘human being’.
With characters that are diverse and more than a little complex, Aya’s book takes us into the investigation and into the lives of these people. Each member of the Special Crimes Team has a past, be it a lack of ability to stay within the confines of the law, or the flaunting of the political negotiations that must often accompany standard police procedure. I felt I could relate to Lt. Michael Williams’ desire to get at the truth regardless of what it took to get there. I understood Nita Slowater, the strong willed female detective with a good heart and a passion for the people in her life, a woman who won’t take crap from anyone, including her superiors.
A great story involving characters you come to care about, in a struggle against an adversary who seems to be two steps ahead of them the whole way. It’s an all-round good read for those who enjoy the thrill of the chase and the twists and turns of a murder mystery.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Great New Writer Who Knows Her Stuff!!, January 7, 2014

Damsels in distress. You will NOT find it here. What you will find is a very strong independent woman who can hold her own. She came alive for me and I felt as if I could see through her eyes. Her boss, Michael Williams a no nonsense kinda guy that I would love to have my back in any situation. Every character in this book has personalities that are rounded, real and made me feel I was right there with them.
I do not want to give away any part of this suspenseful book. But if you want more than a book to read just to pass the time, one that involves you in every twist and turn and keeps you guessing, this is that book! I loved every bit of it and recommend it highly.
