Title: Murder in Hindsight
Series: New Scotland Yard/Doyle and Acton #3
Author: Anne Cleeland
Rating: 

While Acton and Doyle, two of Scotland Yard’s finest, pursue a self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner, Acton’s own questionable methods may prove their undoing…
 
The victims are all criminals who eluded justice—until they ran afoul of an avenger whose modus operandi is a bullet to the back of the head. The key to the vigilante’s identity lies in connecting the cold cases to an event that may have triggered retribution after all these years.
 
Meanwhile, Doyle finds herself shadowed by a mysterious figure. After the man steps forward to rescue her from harm, she wonders why he is invested in protecting her. But when she learns he’s in contact with Acton’s nemesis, she fears she’s being used in a plot against her husband.

    

This book was filled with a bunch of stuff that really bothered me. Acton takes a weird way to keep himself and his wife safe, even though it causes a lot of issues for her. This bothered me, not only because I didn't get it, it was really rather annoying and added a lot of extra drama to the story. 

Also, Doyle is doing her best for Acton, and he seems to have no idea what she goes through to help him. And when he actually learns somethings about his wife he starts to realize that she is trying to protect him as much as he protects her. 

This book was filled with mystery and suspense. But it had a lot of drama that bothered me, other than that I liked the book. I liked the ending of this one a lot though, and I enjoyed how Doyle handles Acton and what happens with that. The only other thing that bothered me was the case Doyle worked wasn't really solved. There was still a murder that was going to happen yet that is glossed over in the end. I'm hoping that is because the next book will include that case again, even though that would be slightly annoying as well. 

I do want to read more in this series, but this one just didn't really do much for me other than make me like Doyle and Acton together even more.
