Call Me Princess is about the horrors that can be encountered with online dating. Meeting people online allows a certain anonymity that doesn’t usually occur in the real world. Inspector Louise Rick is called out to meet with the victim of a horrific date rape and has to piece together how the rapist met and chose his victim. Based on the evidence, this was a planned attack and Rick needs to determine if there’s been any other victims.
The clock is ticking and another victim is found, worse off than the first victim. Once again, journalist Camilla Lind investigates the crime from a more personal perspective and gives the victim an outlet for her pain. This time Camilla and Louise’s personal lives are at odds and the tension in their relationship causes a potential gap in catching the criminal.
I really enjoy how Blaedel delves past the basics of a crime and tries to figure out how the criminal and society in general contribute to the problems.
Another good read by Sara Blaedel.
