I am a fan of Wendy Cartmell. For this reason, I was happy to download Who’s Afraid Now: A Royal Military Police short story (Royal Military Police crime thriller and mystery series Book 1). I was very disappointed; it was just too different from her other mysteries and thrillers. There was no mystery and no thrill.

Detective Sgt. Billy Williams goes home for the weekend to discover that his parent’s neighborhood is being terrorized by a half-dozen punks. He sets out to right the situation. But his solutions is simplistically unrealistic. I can’t see how his one encounter with these kids would work in the real world—the situation he is trying to resolve is just too complex. I hope the subsequent books in this series are better developed than this one.
