Présentation de l'éditeur

After a glamorous young TV soap star dies in a car crash, all eyes are on Detective Geraldine Steel to discover what caused the tragic accident. Another driver was involved in the collision but seems to have miraculously walked away unscathed and has now vanished. The deceased had no obvious enemies and nothing to hide, so the investigation seems to be stalling. But when another young actress is found dead, it becomes painfully clear that there is a murderer on the loose targeting beautiful, famous women. The only problem is that whoever is committing these crimes isn't leaving any clues. With public pressure mounting, Geraldine Steel unwittingly risks her sergeant's life in their search to track down a serial killer . . .

on a l impression que l auteur n a rien à dire entre le premier crime et la découverte du tueur
premier roman raté

Not my favourite 11 avril 2014
Par Best Crime Books - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
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.

Above Average Thriller 7 juillet 2014
Par Mrs. C. Colbert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
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.

And ACTION! 25 avril 2015
Par Bookworm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
After an argument with her boyfriend, young starlet Anna Porter storms out of the house.

To cool off, She decides to go for a long drive.

The streets are quite dark and lonely.

Someone is out there, watching. Waiting for just the perfect opportunity.

Anna ends up on an even darker and more lonely road.

WHAM!! Anna doesn't see the other car till it's too late.

She doesn't die right away...

A taxi driver is the one who finds the scene.
By this time, Anna is dead.
He phones the police.

The police discover that Anna was the lead star of the soap opera TV show Down and Out.

The police check security cameras in the area.
Hmmm, The driver doesn't show up on the cameras.
He/she seems to have vanished.

They also discover that the other vehicle involved in the crash belongs to Anna's boyfriend.

Everything is all very mysterious, but evidence clearly points to the boyfriend.

Her boyfriend is the famous director Piers Trevelyan.
Piers is in his 60's but he's had loads of young girlfriends in his lifetime.
Just like Anna. Young and hoping for fame.

Piers has been married and divorced three times.
One of his wives died in a drowning incident.
He has one son, Zak.
Nineteen year old Zak is around the same age as Anna.

Zak also has access to the van.

**Spoiler**
Another body is found.

Bethany Marsden was strangled with her own necklace.

The police are pretty sure it's the same killer:
Bethany and Anna were both starlets.
They even studied at the same acting school.
They both knew Piers.

Security cameras are checked.
The killer seems to be quite tall, at least 6 foot.
Appears to be a woman in a dark hooded sweatshirt and long blonde hair.

Bodies are piling up.
How many more will die?
Who will be next?

I can honestly say I was blown away by this British mystery.

I loved the author's writing style.
I will be reading more from this author.

This is book 6 but could also work as a stand alone.
Twisted Ending! 19 janvier 2015
Par Robbie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
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!
