Présentation de l'éditeur

Somewhere in the city of Cork, a woman's cry echoes through the rainy streets.

On a bloodstained mattress in a grimy flat, a burly man lies dead. A terrified girl kneels over his body. She has been trapped here for three days.

It doesn't take DS Katie Maguire long to identify the murder victim. He is someone she has been trying to convict for years - a cruel and powerful pimp who terrorised the girls who worked for him.

It's Katie's job to catch the killer. But with men like this dead, the city is safer - and so are the scared young women who are trafficked into Cork. When a second pimp is horrifically murdered, Katie must decide. Should she do her job, or follow her conscience? Should she allow the killer to strike again?

Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is the first novel I have bought from this writer and I couldn't be more disappointed. There is no action in this so-called thriller, the scheme is ridiculous, you do not get attached to the characters and mix them all up. A complete waste of my time and money.

I first read "Broken Angels" and then Red Light, but was disappointed because the plot of the history was the same in both books. I like his writing though only the descriptions of the torture the victims endured I would just bypass them and read on the next page.
Graham Masterton was a horror writer before he began writing thrillers and it shows.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 ENTERTAINING & ABSORBING! 18 août 2014
Par the GreatReads! - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The third book in the Katie Maguire series, Red Light by Graham Masterton is a mystery thriller which is entertaining and absorbing. Masterton skillfully weaves a suspenseful story which makes it difficult to put the book down as you’d want to know what would happen next. He also maintains a fine balance between the believable and the incredulous. Katie Maguire is as good as ever.

What, however, may come as a big disappointment to some will be what makes the book appealing to some. Masterton’s graphic description of violence and torture may be too horrifying for some readers. But if you have heart and the stomach for such, Red Light will leave you wanting for more in the series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic Crime Fiction - Don't Miss This One! 19 septembre 2014
Par Maxine (Booklover Catlady) - Publié sur Amazon.com

The talented Graham Masterton has done it again, in fact I think he upped the ante with this, the third installment in the Katie Maguire crime series. I didn't think he could better the first book White Bones but he has.

What's unique I find about his crime books is the amount of gory, graphic, cringe-worthy kill scenes. You can tell that Masterton was a horror writer before turning his pen (or keyboard) to crime. I like it a lot, it makes for compelling reading, you want to avert your eyes but you can't as then you miss what's happening.

So what's it about?

In a grimy flat in the city of Cork, a burly man lies dead on a bloodstained mattress. His face is unrecognisable, gunshots have shattered cartilage and bone, and even more gruesome is the fact that both his hands are cut off. DS Katie Maguire, of the Irish Garda, is called in to investigate the bizarre murder.

Katie knows it's her job to catch the killer. When it's revealed that the murdered man is a pimp who exploits young women that have been trafficked into Ireland to be part of the growing sex trade, Katie is gathering information to put together the "why" of the murder as well as the "who". When a second pimp is killed, Katie must decide. Are these vigilante murders justified? And how can she stop them spiraling out of control?

My Review:

The plot in this novel is brilliant. DS Katie Maguire has had her eyes on the top man in Cork's sex trafficking trade, an evil man responsible for controlling the lives of many young women who have no idea what they have been brought to Ireland for and once they find out it's too late.

It's a book that made me think because sex trafficking is a very real issue in our day, it's happening all around the world and it's proving to be growing not diminishing. It's absolutely horrific and this book reveals in detail a lot about it, it might be educational to some who know little about the dark side of this industry.

We hear from some of the women caught up in the mess and also hear the voices of the evil men making it all happen. Katie won't rest until the empire is toppled but she's up against difficult circumstances. The book, in detail explores and explains the conditions and situations these innocent women are forced into. It will make you think and feel.

The vigilante who is out there murdering these pimps is a brilliantly written character, she's relentless in her pursuit and has a purpose that is revealed as the book goes on. She has no mercy, none at all. For me it stirred conflicting emotions in relation to this character.

As with the other books in this series we get insight into Katie's personal life and relationship again, but it's done in a way that does not detract from the crime investigation and the overall plot, it's just blended in, making her character even more likeable and tangible.

I liked a lot about this book, I read it over a few hours and it held my attention the whole way. The kill scenes are filled with blood and gore (you have been warned) but Masterton does it so well, edge of your seat stuff, you might try to hide behind a pillow, but not recommended when reading. It's graphic and visual and would make for a great TV series! I like the way Masterton is not afraid to tackle the dark side in his books.

Both of the man's hands were missing and the blanket beneath his wrists was black with dried blood. The stumps were alive with maggots, wriggling and twitching as they struggled with each other to feed off his festering flesh.

The outcome? Brilliantly done, great lead up to a somewhat conflicted ending for me (I was wanting it to go the other way), had me turning the pages at a rapid rate late into the night. Another brilliant novel from one of my favourite authors and highly recommended. In fact, read the whole series. 4.5 stars from me for this one.

Red Light by Graham Masterton is a masterfully written gorefest detective thriller the likes of which not even this reader could have imagined. The attention to detail, brilliantly described characters, the noir feel in grimy wet streets, sex trafficking, all add up to an explosion to the senses. And the author knows how to use all us readers' senses so be warned there are some stomach-churning murder scenes that took my breath away, I had to close my mouth to stop the flies buzzing in and pinch my nose on several occasions.
Our heroine, Katy Maguire, is back to investigate a brutal execution-style murder in the red light district (squeamish close your eyes), but she is left with a dilemma - so what if someone is cleaning her streets of sex-trafficking scum? Let them sweep the city of its filth. But the killings don't stop as The Avenging Angel continues and it's here that Graham excels by letting the reader inside a vigilante's head and make us understand why. Relentless, unforgiving, brutal, sadistic to the extreme and yet the author makes us feel for the avenger and even agree with the motives.
This novel is brilliant beyond comparison with any other serial killer thriller and a must rad for all fans of slick, grimy crime thrillers with a hard edge.

Red Light is not for the faint of heart. It is an ugly look at sex trafficking in Ireland and it is believable and methodical. Masterton seemingly knows his subject and has created a police procedural that is smart and thorough, layering a tale of a killer of pimps with a vigilante mindset. This is a detailed read that is worth careful attention. Well plotted, gritty and graphic. I am a new fan and will be moving back in time to catch up with the series. However, the book stands alone as a great read.
