Présentation de l'éditeur

When a man dies in a gas explosion, the police suspect arson. The Murder Investigation Team is called in to examine the evidence, but the case takes on a new and terrible twist when a local villain is viciously attacked.

As the police inquiries lead from an expensive Harchester Hill estate to the local brothel, a witness dies in a hit-and-run. Was it coincidence … or cold-blooded murder? The Murder Investigation Team has problems of its own—and so does Geraldine Steel. A shocking revelation threatens her peace of mind as the investigation races toward its dramatic climax.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One For the Road 11 septembre 2010
Par Foggy Tewsday - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
`Road Closed' is Leigh Russell's second novel - and the second in the D.I. Geraldine Steel series. For those who have read and enjoyed the first, Cut Short, the good news is that this new book is every bit as good, if not better, than that first instalment. The author keeps to a similar structure with this novel: the chapters are brief which helps to keep the story moving at a good pace, allowing us to enter various characters' lives in short bursts. It also helps the reader to succumb to "just one more chapter" syndrome with ease. The writing is clear and unpretentious, the plot satisfying without being impenetrable.

Novels that are part of a series following one particular character can sometimes go off-track when that character's personal life comes too much to the fore. This has not happened with Geraldine Steel. I think the short chapter approach helps with this. Yes, we get plenty of her personal life in the mix, but it doesn't impact on the novel's main thrust as a crime thriller. The novel's title, `Road Closed' refers to the after effects of a house fire in which a man loses his life, but it may also have a metaphorical significance as events in Geraldine's private life are revealed.

Like `Cut Short', `Road Closed' is not, strictly speaking, a whodunit. As the body count climbs, we know who the murderer is. So do the police. The problem is proving it. The characters are neatly drawn. The thuggish Cal Martin is a particularly nasty piece of work. Geraldine Steel herself is perhaps not someone who sticks much in the memory. I struggle to get a mental image of her in my mind: for me, the stories are stronger than the series' main character. Perhaps her ordinariness is a plus-point for this series. Or perhaps I'm too used to television detectives who seem to come with a multitude of foibles.

My quibbles are very minor. This is a highly recommended novel and a very good read. If you enjoyed Leigh Russell's first novel, you're sure to enjoy this as well. If you've not yet read this author, then I'd say it's not strictly necessary to read the two novels in the correct order as there are not too many references to events in `Cut Short'. However, there are several recurring characters from the first novel, and, given how good that novel is, I would recommend that you read it first if you can.

If you're a fan of Margaret Yorke, I think you'd probably like Leigh Russell.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A whodunnit in the truest sense of the word! 18 janvier 2014
Par Robbie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Detective Inspector Geraldine Steel is not leading the glamorous and exciting life of the policewomen we typically see portrayed in television and movies. She is a woman who leads a solitary life where her work environment is the only place she feels at home. She is often accused by friends and family of being obsessed with her work. Assigned to work with Detective Sergeant Ian Petersen who becomes the star of his own series beginning with Cold Sacrifice, Geraldine begins to follow leads in seemingly unrelated crimes that will form a deadly chain linking arson, murder and revenge. The criminals in this case could not be more inept. Only their viciousness prevents them from being comedic. Group these nasty characters with a young woman who is roughly shoved over the line from eccentricity to insanity and you have a plethora of suspects who will keep you guessing til the end of the book as to who is guilty of what. To make this frustrating case even more complicated, Geraldine is trying to cope with two events in her personal life which distract her from her usual single minded investigative style. The recent death of her mother has brought to light life altering information and a budding relationship seems destined to become a sacrificial lamb on the altar of her work. On a parallel course with Geraldine, we find Sophie Cliff , a young woman who has also led a solitary life. An only child and something of a misfit, she is absorbed in her studies and her work until she finds love with a co-worker whose personality meshes with her own. Will Geraldine be drawn to Sophie by their bond of solitude and obsession or will she rely on the intuition that has made her successful to link the chain of events accurately? This is well written book with a complex story line that is nevertheless easy to follow. It is a whodunnit in the truest sense of the word because readers will be kept guessing until the very end and the conclusion is one of those where even though you know in your heart how it's going to end, you really wish the author would find a way to make it not so. I particularly like the author's technique of plot development. The book is written in a series of brief chapters, each one of which is like the piece of a puzzle for the reader to put into place. Once all the pieces are in place, there will be a clear picture and only one conclusion even though it may not be the one readers would prefer. I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy a good mystery with an unpredictable ending.

Leigh Russell gets better with each book. I liked her two previous books, prompting me to buy her 3rd one, Road Closed. This is her best yet, but I would read the her previous ones, it makes for a better experience. Can't wait for the next one!
