Dutch Days Book Review: The Girl Who Broke the Rules by Marnie Riches

Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Suze

Chief Inspector of the Amsterdam police van den Bergen has to solve a complicated murder case. There are two bodies, women with a link to the sex industry. He calls Georgina McKenzie because he thinks she can help. She's doing a PhD in criminology and pornography is her field of expertise. George wants nothing more than to go back to Amsterdam and she decides to help him, no matter what it will cost her. Together they're trying to make sense of the murders. Unfortunately the killer doesn't stop and their case becomes more and more complicated. The same goes for the relationship between George and van den Bergen... Will they come out of this horrible mess unharmed?

The Girl Who Broke the Rules is the second book about George and van den Bergen. I love this unique duo and think they are a great team. Their case is so big that it's difficult to make sense of it. I couldn't wait to find out more and couldn't stop reading. I kept wanting to know more and ever since I finished reading this book I only have one wish and that is to read the next book in the series. Marnie Riches is a great writer who knows what she's writing about. She chooses more than one country as her setting and it works. I love the international aspect and reading about Amsterdam through her eyes is fabulous. 

I really enjoyed both the suspense and the abundance of gripping aspects in this book The story has a clever construction and I like that every character is educated. This is a high level thriller. For me the story couldn't be long enough, I didn't want to stop reading. I liked the end and think the cliffhanger is fantastic. The Girl Who Broke the Rules is intelligent, filled with tension, moving and entertaining, it's a more than complete package that I highly recommend.
