The Well of Youth: The Last Prophecy Series 1

Dig Two Graves: A Gripping Crime Thriller (The Detective Solomon Gray Series Book 1) - Keith,  Terry NIXON,  Allison STONES,  BUSBY

10 years ago, sergeant Gary's six year old son disappeared at a fun fair. Needless to say that this tragedy had a deep impact on Solomon Gray and his family. Now he is investigating the suicide/murder of a sixteen year old boy and the murder of a priest(who was well known to his wife).The thing is, I just couldn't connect with Solomon Gray. He is aggressive, keeps vital information to himself, lies,is arrogant, self centered...He is just thoroughly unpleasant(in any normal police station he would have been put on indeterminate leave a long time ago). That said,his character is extremely well elaborated while the other characters are cardboard figures, pastiches perhaps. One has the impression that the story is not so important, that it comes second to the development of the character of Solomon Gray...
