Présentation de l'éditeur

BOOK 4 in DI Geraldine Steel Series
Detective Inspector Geraldine Steel relocates to London to take on another thrilling murder investigation.
 
While Geraldine strikes up a friendship with her new sergeant, the bodies of two black girls are discovered in quick succession in North London. Concerned about a reaction from the local black community, the police are puzzled to learn that two teeth were extracted from both victims after they died. One of the girls worked in a massage parlour and suspicion falls on a client of hers, a known racist. Geraldine is led to the upmarket shops of Bond Street in Central London. She fails to find the killer who is out prowling the streets hunting for his next victim. A young gay man unwittingly goes home with the killer who also takes another girl home to his attic, where he keeps his victims chained up while he shows them his 'collection'. With the death toll mounting, Geraldine has no time to search for her birth mother as she hunts for the elusive killer the papers are calling 'The Dentist'. When she finally discovers the gruesome collection on display in his attic, the killer knows that Geraldine must be his next victim.

This is the 4th in the Geraldine Steel series, and it would appear that having found a winning formula, Leigh Russel is sticking with it. The first couple of books were interesting, but by the third one, there's a distinct feeling of deja vu. Same plot - different storyline - suspect everyone else but Geraldine is sure of, ( she turns out to be right, of course) unstable relationship with her sister, inability to hand over responsibility, boss who takes all the credit for Geraldine's work, etc. etc. I won't be reading the 5th book.

Liked this one. Much better than the others, quite fast moving and good insight into the problems of facing a new job in a different city. Good read.

With a depraved murderer on the loose Geraldine finds herself grasping for witnesses and evidence to get this monster off the streets but a stray thought running through her head is all she needed to lead her in the right direction.

I liked this mystery but was a little disappointed because after having read Dead End (#3) I expected a little more. This is #4 in the DI Geraldine Steel series and though they are a series they are written to be stand alone reads also which means there is a lot of "information repeat" that can be tedious for those that are in it for the whole series and not just as a stand alone read.

I simply could not stand a lot of the characters in this book, whiners the whole lot of them wanted to give them the fictional slap across the face. However, out of the whole bunch I think the most well developed character in the book was Douggie, he acted just like the perfect car thief would.

I finished this one with an "ugh", it was good but not memorable.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Of course, it's me reviewing this book as it is a mystery and I can't help but read them all for myself! I did enjoy this book and story mostly and it kept me interested for the most part. The story got a bit slow and bogged down toward the end. I felt like maybe the author was trying to put too much other stuff into the story and not focusing and concentrating on the mystery/thriller part. So it got slow and the inner dialogue with Geraldine about her mother was a bit over the top. I didn't feel like it added to the story and it almost felt like it was just thrown in to add drama, which I didn't feel like it did.

I would probably read more books by Leigh Russell as this one was well written and even though it took place in England, it wasn't too heavy on the slang, which some books tend to be. Even though I was reading and uncorrected proof, it was pretty well edited and I didn't notice too many errors. I like that about unedited books as even though they are marked as unedited, I still have a hard time reading them if they are too heavy on the errors. I do agree that she is a "brilliant talent" as Jeffrey Deaver called her (another author I absolutely LOVE!).

Par Best Crime Books - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have read each of the books in this series and was looking forward to this one which is book 4 of the series. However, with the relocation of Geraldine to London I found myself feeling like we were back at the beginning in a certain sense.

After finishing book 3 which I loved and rated a full 5 out of 5, I had high expectations and I think the new setting may have thrown me slightly. Geraldine is once again on uncertain ground as she tries to get to grips with her new role and new colleagues. I loved Ian Peterson, an ex-colleague of Geraldine's but found myself being introduced to a new sergeant that she will be working with (who I am undecided about at the moment).

When Geraldine is assigned to work on a case, she doesn't realise the potential media impact, as the case could have a racist element to it. The story itself was as usual a good one, and the descriptive gruesomeness of some scenes was brilliant. However, I think that after finishing this book there were some elements missing. I feel like just as I was getting to know characters and Geraldine's setting, we are thrown in with new settings and characters which made me feel like it was harder work than it should have been.

I also think that because of all of that, the actual crimes that were taking place seemed to take a bit of a back seat for me. Towards the end of the book the pace was picked up, but there was an element of it being wrapped up too neatly at the end for my liking.

Overall, I enjoyed the book and loved re-visiting a character I have grown to look forward to reading about. I just wish that I didn't feel like we have gone back a few steps with the character, and can only hope that I grow to like Geraldine's new colleagues as much as the old!

Someone is stalking women on the streets of London. Two women have gone missing with their bodies showing up days later, battered and mutilated. The killer is taking teeth and amputating limbs post-mortem, to what purpose no one knows. The police pull out all the stops in their investigation, but are not getting anywhere fast. Public sentiment is rising since the two victims who have been found are both minorities and there is a question of police prejudice. Even worse, the evidence recovered with the bodies suggest that there could still be other victims who have not been found.

Into this environment comes Detective Inspector Geraldine Steel. Steel has been in the police force for years, but has been posted in a more rural area. Now she has been transferred to London, and this case is her first opportunity to either shine or fail. She has a new sargent, Sam Haley, a vivacious woman who keeps Geraldine in the know about the local team and its gossip. She also has a new supervisor, one that she's not sure she trusts. She feels he will take the credit if the investigation is successful and use Geraldine's London inexperience as the scapegoat if it fails.

The victims seem to not have much in common. Jessica Palmer is a child of the streets, poor and working in a massage parlor. Donna Henry is wealthy and cultured. Yet both have fallen prey to the killer. Steel determines that the common factor is that both were taken outside pubs after a night of too much indulgence, snatched off the street while making their way home. Can she find the killer before more women go missing?

This is the fourth novel in the Geraldine Steel series, although the first where she strikes out on her own rather than being paired with her prior partner, Ian Peterson. Readers will find the novel interesting in its inside view of a police investigation and how the personalities of those investigating a crime impact the success of the job. This book is recommended for mystery readers.
