Eleven Days is the second book in the Carrigan and Miller series, but it can easily be read as a standalone. I’m yet to read the first book, and I got caught up with the story right away.
Carrigan and Miller are called to a fire, when they reach the scene they realise the house is not just a regular house but a convent.
Fighting internal politics and the church hierarchy, the case unravels to reveal a story involving local drug dealers, religious radicals in South America and international battles over land and oil.
Carrigan and Miller are a team, with a strong dynamic, but no sign of a romantic relationship, which makes a nice changes for a story involving such a pairing.
Stav Sherez is a writer who knows what he’s talking about. He’s built a story full of credibility that even though it’s fiction, it’s clearly been brilliantly researched.
I look forward to reading the next book in the Carrigan and Miller series, and will definitely be looking out the first one.
