Love, Rock and Crime by Alice G. Aliferi is written in a style very different to run-of-the-mill crime novels. It personally follows the hero Savvas Kallinas as he deals with life as a homicide officer, and, also being the youngest officer in his department, not forgetting his life outside of the police force.
His investigations are people-centric, and his methodical approach to policing has achieved a high rate of success solving crimes. This has made his older colleagues quite envious of him, particularly those who have been on the homicide squad for a number of years. That said, there is a grudging kind of respect for this young officer who has seemingly come out of nowhere.
However, the young officer's life is turned upside down when six unsolved robberies give rise to several other crimes. Kallinas will need all his powers of detection to get through them, but he risks becoming too deeply involved.
This is Greek-born Alice G. Aliferi's first crime novel, and if future novels are of this content then I for one cannot wait for more.
