I have read all of the books in the Geraldine Steel series and this is the 6th book in the series. The series has changed somewhat with her colleague Ian Peterson leaving Geraldine (and now having his own series of books), and Geraldine relocating to London. This latest book starts off with a particularly exciting scene involving a glamorous young TV star who dies in a fatal road accident. When Geraldine is called in it appears to be a standard collision, except for the fact that the driver of the other vehicle appears to have vanished into thin air.

At first I was completely caught up in the story and it all felt like we were back in the middle of an exciting case. Sadly, a few more chapters in, and it kind of felt like it came to a bit of a standstill. I am most definitely a fan of this series but felt like this book was a little bit safe and it seemed we were veering into familiar territory. There was quite a bit of detail while the officers involved followed the case and we certainly see Geraldine interact with her new colleagues including Nick and Sam. We also see a brief appearance if Ian Peterson, and if I’m honest it felt like Geraldine and him just ‘worked’ and as soon as we went back to present day I found myself feeling uncomfortable again.

I think this latest story (although not a bad read) was a little too predictable and certainly laying too much on the safe side. The series having now split Geraldine and Ian Peterson leaves me still undecided about how well it works. I really enjoyed the last Geraldine Steel book (which didn’t include Ian Peterson, but this one just didn’t sit well with me. I feel like the characters are still finding their feet and I’m hoping that the next instalment feels more right than this one. I am most definitely a fan of these books and think that Leigh Russell is a talented writer. Whether or not the split in the series was a good move or not? I’m still undecided. I can only hope that the next books in the respective series put me right.

Fatal Act is the sixth book in the Detective Inspector Geraldine Steel series and the third Leigh Russell book I've read ...... and I think this is the best of them.

When a TV soap star is killed in a car crash it seems like an accident at first but it then becomes clear that she was murdered. Her older lover is the main suspect, especially when another young actress who was known to him is also murdered.

For Geraldine work gave her life meaning and purpose and she has to juggle her personal life with her professional life to uncover how the killer managed to disappear from the crime scenes like the invisible man (or woman).

The storyline was well paced without being too exciting, it had a steady feel to it, a page turner nearing the end, strong characters and a good mystery all add up to an above average thriller.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A great start but a lackluster finish, 10 janvier 2015

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

I like a good mystery and suspense thriller. I love being gripped by the story and not being able to figure out who the bad guy is and what their motive was. This book does not fall into that category for me. The first part of the book was decent. I wasn't sure what was going on or what the motive was for the killing. But, about halfway through the book, maybe a little more, I had it figured out. There was no element of surprise and the ending was lackluster.

The other thing that killed this book for me was the constant internal dialogue from Geraldine about her adoption, her sister, her birth mother, etc. Some of the same points were reiterated over and over again. It was becoming tedious for me to read. When a particularly dull or long winded section came about, I skimmed through it to get on to the next part. The book wasn't horrible; it just didn't have the elements of mystery and suspense that I look for in a book of this genre.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Twisted Ending! 19 janvier 2015

Fatal Act, author Leigh Russell's latest entry in her Detective Geraldine Steel mystery series, opens with a homicide. No surprise there, but what is surprising to readers is the murder weapon . . . an old beat up van! When Detective Geraldine Steel and her sergeant, Sam Haley, are called to investigate a fatal car crash, Sam is puzzled and a bit insulted as to why Homicide has been called rather than Traffic to investigate. Geraldine and Sam are even more puzzled when the scant evidence they uncover makes it seem as though the driver of the van disappeared into the night, uninjured in a crash that should have sent him or her to the hospital. Frustrated by leads that go no where, Geraldine finds herself clashing with her supervisor, Detective Chief Inspector Reg Milton, who pressures her for a quick resolution to the case even though Geraldine doesn't believe his choice for the perp, and the most obvious suspect, is the killer. Meanwhile death strikes again . . . and again. And the only similarity in the murders is the ability of the killer to vanish into thin air! Fatal Act, like all Leigh Russell's books, is impeccably written. The plot is well-developed but not particularly complex which makes the twist at the end when we find out the identity of the killer all the more shocking. Familiar characters such as Geraldine's cold fish of a sister reappear in this book and even Detective Ian Peterson, who now has his own series, makes a cameo appearance. Although no one can really replace Ian as a partner, Geraldine finds herself appreciating her growing relationship with her sergeant except for Sam's unsolicited advice about men. One of the most intriguing things about this series is the development of Geraldine as a character. She is a strong and dedicated policewoman, yet insecure and unsure in her personal relationships . . . especially with men. Geraldine has terrible luck with men and this book is no exception. She continues to hope for a relationship with her birth mother and suffers from guilt because she allows her job and her sense of duty to come between her and the sister she grew up with and the niece she loves. There is so much conflict in Geraldine's life and Leigh Russell effectively presents this conflict running as an undercurrent to Geraldine's unswerving devotion to finding justice for the dead. Readers who take pride in being able to figure out whodunit before the end of a mystery may find themselves stumped by this one!
