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's a cruel and powerful pimp she's been trying to convict for years.

It's Katie's job to catch the killer. But with men like this dead, the city is safer - and so are the frightened 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?

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Really.. don't bother 7 novembre 2014
Par Magfly
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.

What a great story. Just couldn't put it down. Sad that a lot of writers can't seem to let the star detective have a relatively happy relationship though. Even so, highly recommended.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Torn and frustrated! 21 avril 2015
Par Morann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I'm actually very torn about Graham Masterton's work--torn and frustrated. He is a talented writer, and he has a winner of a series in the Katie Maguire books. Katie Maguire herself is a great character, very believable, and Masterton surrounds her with other intriguing personalities. Add that to his excellent knowledge of Cork, its environs, and its crime, and you've got everything it takes to make a series that will keep one involved and coming back for more. And yet...there are these other aspects of him as a writer that are just SO FRUSTRATING and predictable and more besides. The first is his penchant for making his readers relive every single horrible aspect of whatever incredibly gruesome torture he has dreamed up for his victims...over and over and over again. White Bones is probably even worse in this respect, as isTaken for Dead (which I'm trying to decide whether I have the heart to finish as we speak), but it's a hallmark of Red Light also. After a while it's both predictable and horrifyingly voyeuristic, and I don't understand why a talented writer--one who could write a great book without resorting to such pandering--gives in to this temptation. The second is his insistence on writing soft-core-porn sex scenes starring his main characters. These are just strange, really, like one was reading along happily in one genre (mystery thriller) and suddenly opened a (red velvet, tacky) door into another (soft-core porn). Again, why does he feel he has to do this? He doesn't do it well, just embarrassingly, and it interrupts the narrative that you actually care about. Moreover, in some of his books (Taken for Dead), the person she sleeps with doesn't even make sense as someone she would even give the time of day to, much less have sex with. Graham Masterton!! YOU'RE A BETTER WRITER THAN THIS!!! YOU DON'T NEED TO DO THIS TO KEEP AND HOLD YOUR AUDIENCE!!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Reader Beware 23 février 2015
Par S. K. McClafferty - Publié sur Amazon.com

This was the second book I have read by Mr. Masterton, and there is no doubt he is a very accomplished author. Because of that, I was mystified by the end of this one. It was painfully anticlimactic, and ended so abruptly that I turned the page and shouted, "WHAT??" at my Kindle. I try to give reviews that are helpful, so I will say the story was well-done until that point. Although I loved the book "White Bones" and was ready to buy the rest of the series, I have resisted the urge to do so, because of the dead-end to "Red Light."

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Somewhat redundant but overall worthwhile 20 janvier 2015
Par Gordon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Review of Red Light by Graham Masterton 3.5 stars

This book started out with a strong message that became muddle as it progressed. The mutilating crimes committed in the early stages of this story seemed somewhat routine as the spree continued. The victims were always given the same Sophie’s Choice-either get shot in the face or in the scrotum. That scenario quickly became boring but there was a sufficient quality to the ongoing back-story that kept things moving along.

The setting was in Cork, Ireland, a city south of Dublin. The plot involved the legal and illegal sex market as well as immigration and sex slavery primarily entering Ireland via Nigeria. That aspect of the book was outright fascinating and informative. The police procedural facet was decent but lacked enough information that made it appear to be a bit on the sketchy side.

Considering all features of this story, overall I found the book entertaining, well written and attention grabbing. After I finished it I learned more about this author and from the gruesome manner of the vengeful crimes, it came as no surprise that Graham Masterson was once a successful writer of horror fiction. But as I mentioned previously, whatever shock value was initially portrayed in the early chapters of this book dissipated because of redundancy. One thing that I do not like to see in a good mystery is predictability and unfortunately that mystery had a lot of that.

I would rate this with 3.5 stars and that is because I enjoyed this story despite what I have identified as downfalls.

I do hope that Mr. Masterton’s transition from shock horror to mystery writing is a successful one for him and his career. He certainly did do a good job with his knowledge of Ireland and the political turmoil that the sex trade is having on Irish society.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 ENTERTAINING & ABSORBING! 18 août 2014
Par Avid Reviewer - 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
Format:Format Kindle
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.
