(hide spoiler)] absolutely not the behavior of an FBI agent who should be allowed to keep her job? she behaves like a teenager throughout most of the book, with emotional outbursts and authority issues, and I didn't feel like any research at all was done into any kind of FBI procedures, standards of behavior/making reports/investigation etc. for some reason, she has to be beaten up again and again, usually while trespassing in the middle of the night, so that we can keep hearing about how much her ribs hurt. a lot of the details are just silly. a lot of effort is made to suggest that there are major international coverups, but by the end of the story, it's never explained why governments would care to cover any of these crimes up? the personal relationships in this book are also excessively weird and impossible to understand. she seems to hate her fiancee, ignoring his calls, dismissing him, and going on dates with someone who is appealing to her because he reminds her of someone she knew in high school??? the only thing she likes about him is his smile, which is the same as this dude, like, some development? character? chemistry? no? she's supposed to have a friendship with this one british police officer, so she never tells her anything or shares her feelings, but gets mad at her "friend" for behaving exactly the same way (and also thinks that her friend's hobbies, like antiquing, are stupid and boring). it was almost funny how unlikeable this main character is. there's an investigative reporter who's repeatedly called something like a boozy old hack (but exactly the same phrase multiple times, even saying it of herself), who, by the end of the book is revealed to be an award-winning journalist with a sense of adventure and a talent for digging up and manipulating all kinds of information; I feel like this book would have made more sense if it were about an investigative reporter in the first place. so, actually, if you are in the mood for something kind of silly and cartoonish, this might be a fun book. not my cup of tea, that's all.

    I couldn't get into this story. The clichéd descriptions of secondary characters did little to endear me to the MC who was portrayed in ever more glowing terms. Mary Sue anyone?

This is, of course, the top level businessman who has been entertaining a rent boy in his room. Then we have: a gawky, geeky teen ... shovelling his food, barely chewing it before each noisy gulp. - who is a prospective PhD student - ?? He is a teenager? You need a Masters to do a PhD and he most certainly isn't a child prodigy. Anyone who is capable of doing a PhD while they are still a teenager would not be looking round a university. The universities would be looking for him! And it goes on. The alcoholic reporter, the appalling and unnecessarily vicious 'over-the-top' description of the proprietor of Escort Angels a middle aged woman whose plastic surgery had left her face looking like an explosion in a latex foam factory. She'd been nipped, tucked and pumped up into a caricature of a human being. She pouted her enormous lips in complaint..... but what power she had left in her facial movements wasn't enough to move all that rubbery flesh.' In the end I could not read any more. I had the feeling that the author was venting her wrath on a variety of people in her past. I hope I was wrong, but I could not find any 'real' characters in this story.

    FBI agent Ingrid Skyberg is tasked with looking into a potential murder case involving two young women from the US studying at a London university - one the victim, the other, her former roommate, a suspect in her suspicious death - on behalf of the US embassy. While both the Metropolitan Police and the embassy seem to want the case closed as quickly as possible, Ingrid believes there is more to Lauren Shelbourne's death than a tragic accident, and the further she investigates, the more secrets FBI agent Ingrid Skyberg is tasked with looking into a potential murder case involving two young women from the US studying at a London university - one the victim, the other, her former roommate, a suspect in her suspicious death - on behalf of the US embassy. While both the Metropolitan Police and the embassy seem to want the case closed as quickly as possible, Ingrid believes there is more to Lauren Shelbourne's death than a tragic accident, and the further she investigates, the more secrets she unravels. This series opener came with an intriguing premise, a tough and likable protagonist, and a number of interesting twists, but the many frustrating obstacles and endless obstruction Ingrid has to deal with during her investigation also make the book very frustrating for the reader and the ending seemed rushed, leaving various story threads dangling. (What's with all the secrecy at the embassy apart from the case of Ingrid's predecessor? Why the pressure to close the case so quickly, both from the police and the embassy? What about Brewster? What about the other psychology students involved in the research programme? Gimme some answers!)

    Blah What an unimpressive,disappointing, and wishy washy book. The heroine is not convincing as an fbi agent she has no instinct, no imagination, and no detection skills. No wonder she didn't get more than a level two clearance. Another book that being free is still too expensive.

    Oh dear....this isn't a patch on Run Girl which I gave 5*. What a disappointment. I can't really put my finger on what annoyed me about it, either, really... I did see on Amazon that she uses American spelling for American characters and likewise for the English but then she writes traumatized for an English speaker !! It does make for some baffling reading the way she swaps about. I can see, by other reviews, that that's an oft-mentioned irritation in her stories.

I was also tired of hearing about Ingrid's level 2 clearance by the time I hit page 69. It was around the 4th time it had been referred to and I was cheesed off with her repeating it ad nauseum. Such a shame as it had sounded a promising series. I do remember I hated The Loyal Servant too and was pleasantly surprised with Run Girl but it seems like perhaps that was a happy fluke.

    Well written This was an interesting book. The characters were realistic and went through issues that people could relate too. The writer did a great job of tying the plots together and explaining how it flowed with the main story. There were surprises in the story that developed as you read but it just added to the story. The writer did not leave any questions unanswered and I would more than likely read the next book in this series.

    My two star review was generous. The novel was wordy (400+ pages telling a story that could have been told well in half the space and time). The characters were many and none particularly well developed. The heroine unbelievable in many ways.

    Disappointed to give a bad review, as I'd really enjoyed Run Girl. Fresh Doubt just had WAY too much going on that didn't really progress the story or character development, so much that the book seemed to go on forever. In my opinion, a lot of it could (and should) have been edited out.

She has a challenging and delicate position: working with British police to oversee investigations, and doing so as to not offend or overstep. However, her FBI tactical and investigative skills are superior and she tends to find the leads and solve the case. The main character is round and well developed. However, the other characters are not. Her fiancé, also an FBI agent in the USA, is a phantom. Their relationship is a contradiction: engaged yet never communicating AT ALL. Weird. Her counterpart in England is “a friend” yet they have little interaction with one another. A journalist who is pivotal in helping Ingrid, then -POOF- vanishes for the remainder of the book. A student who is supplying drugs - what happens to him? How does he figure into anything? The antagonist is not well developed at all. The reader never discovers her motives. The plot is interesting- a murder mystery, suicide, and a suicide attempt. Are they related? How so? Psychological experiments on a college campus involving drugs? Not going to happen. Yet, it does in this book. Many loose ends. The tension builds through the first half, albeit somewhat slowly, then explodes for the remainder of the book. It is very hard to get into the book, yet it kept my interest after the 60% mark. There are twists and turns, and the reader is kept guessing until the ending. Exciting climax! Satisfying denouement! A protagonist with an interesting, dark past. However, there are too many events that are never resolved. Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!

    I picked this up free on Amazon bookstore with low expectations. But this turned out to be a decent read. There are some moments of pure coincidence and a need to suspend reality. But overall Ms. Hudson crafts a believable character in Ingrid Skyberg. She is a female FBI agent attached to the US Embassy who has two cases to solve. The one that ends getting her major focus is that of the death of an American student at a prestigious university in London.

I am also assuming that she has limited knowledge of the US Embassy in London, the security protocols in place and the placement of the different representatives within the building. Having worked the and in the US Navy building just across the street (for 7 years) there are quite a few issues that I find particularly annoying. Those things would not bother someone unfamiliar. Truthfully, I did not get a sense that the author had spent much time in the UK with British nationals. I would also like to point out that this woman, one who is an FBI Agent of some years was entirely to gullible. She should have realized the young woman was lying much, MUCH sooner. There were too many characters, too many he said, she said. Someone did this, no not them... None of the characters have any redeeming qualities. I finished it only because I was hoping there was some great twist that would make such a hard slog worth it. No such luck.

The psychology behind the 'crime' seemed rushed, like the author picked the first un-ethical experiment they laid their hands on in an A-level psychology book and just went with it. The characters were not easy to relate to and i thought that there were way too many of them to keep track of or understand their roles in the story. I'm so glad this was free, if i had paid for this i would have been sorely disappointed. I read a lot of psychological/ crime thrillers and never has one confused me as much as this one did! I'm baffled!

    It was good. Well written and her characters are pretty rich, if not somewhat cliche here and there. There was one issue I had: it was obviously written by an English person, which is great for London landmarks, but kind of broke the believability for me, just because Americans speak English very differently from other English speakers. It seems like it shouldn't be a big deal, and it probably shouldn't, but it kind of threw me off in my head. I sometimes forgot that the main character and a goo It was good.

    'Fresh Doubt' was definitely a psychological thriller. The story line was incredible. The creativity Eva Hudson writes with astounds me. I never guessed how the twists would turn out. The characters were an array of personalities. Ingrid is quite the detective of sorts. I liked how her mind worked things out. Sure, she got her butt handed to her a few times, but she kept going forward. I look forward to reading more. A great add to your tbr list.

    Obsession, lies. Two stories, one finally answered, but the other one without any solution to that case left unanswered. Post graduate work of students in London, and their work. Ingrid Skyberg, FBI agent gets too emotional to do her job, but the end at least gets one right.

Dissatisfied with the police’s quick closure to the investigation, Ingrid digs deeper, which lands her in trouble with the cops and her boss. The more questions Ingrid asks, the more she realizes that something sinister is happening at the Loriners’ campus. Fresh Doubt is a well written mystery with interesting characters and subplots. Ingrid’s professional and personal life create a fully rounded character with a strong moral compass, until push comes to shove. Her quest for justice and her ambivalence about her fiancé back in the U.S., show us a torn and believable heroine. The book is a little long, but the pacing still worked as new evidence and other twists were carefully revealed. Although an injured Ingrid places herself in danger, the reasons were plausible for the most part. This first book is a great start to what I’m sure is a highly successful series.

    The technical aspects of the writing were good. The story was ok but felt disjointed in parts and a bit hokey at times. The main character did not ring true as an FBI agent and I felt like I wanted to shout at her to wake up at times as she seemed so gullible and slow to put things together.

What was going on at the embassy and why would they hold back information while still expecting someone to solve a case. What was going on with the main police contact and what was the outcome of that? There were all these loose ends all over the place that felt underdeveloped and left to dangle. For me, I think the story would have worked a bit better if the main character was an inexperienced private investigator as that is what she seemed like as the story progressed.

    I wanted to like this book as the premise seemed promising. Alas, the story line was weak, the characters were poorly drawn and the writing was non-remarkable. I knew who the murderer was instantly and even the red herrings the author tossed out were not convincing at all. I wanted to like the main character who is billed as a strong brilliant investigator but who comes off as a shallow insecure twit. What is the deal with the supposed-fiance anyway?? Summary: disappointing read.

    Easy reading - I did enjoy the story however I found some things jarring; why did everyone keep on touching everyone on the arm? I put it down to the characters being American, as I Brit I can tell you there is nothing reassuring about a complete stranger touching your arm!

    Follow your gut! Excellent read. Fast paced. Multiple threads to the plot that mess beautiful. Terrific woman heroine, loves her work but still can question blind obedience to the rules. Has a love interest but book holds high behavior standards. Throughly enjoyed every page.
