Agreed.We both liked it as being something different and not down the same old path shows have beaten to death.
The books read like Kathy Reichs’ ‘Bones / Tempe Brennen series... IDK if that’s Academics moving into Fiction, or just co-incidence. I’m not sure if I like the series or the books, better. Which is a good sign, overall. As they’re each contributing different things in different ways. There’s still a spark of “something” in each. Which is always fun
