Présentation de l'éditeur

Revenge never felt so good ...

When a successful businessman is brutally murdered, a long list of suspects develops that is filled with colleagues, ex-lovers, and debt collectors. But no one is more suspicious than his beautiful wife and her young lover. That is, until the victim's business partner suffers the same gruesome fate and another murder, seemingly unconnected except for the killer's signature, occurs soon after. Confounded, Detective Geraldine Steel is left with only one more lead: DNA at the crime scenes pointing to two women—one dead and one in prison.

With a steady stream of bodies arriving at the morgue, Detective Geraldine Steel and her team are in a race against time to stop a vicious killer.

I couldn't believe it was yet again time for another Geraldine Steel instalment and I was even more excited than usual thanks to getting an early review copy of it. I must say the first thing I loved about this book was the cover; they are brilliant and most certainly eye catching. Geraldine Steel is a Detective Inspector who has recently relocated to London. In the last book (Death Bed) she was thrown straight into a murder investigation and this book picks up a few weeks later. Geraldine is only just getting over the paperwork involved in her last case when she is thrown straight into a new one.

It all starts with the discovery of a successful businessman being found dead in his car. His death is particularly brutal and Geraldine has a lot of work on her hands. The businessman's wife was involved in an affair so instantly becomes a suspect, as does her lover. As soon as Geraldine gets stick into the new case, the original murder victim's business partner winds up dead although the two cases don't seem to be related. They discover DNA which leads them only to a woman serving life in prison, and another woman who is dead.

In the last book, I felt like I was getting to know a whole new host of characters what with Geraldine's relocation. This made this current book a little easier, as we see the return of Geraldine's colleague Sam. Although Sam is featured quite heavily, I still miss Ian Peterson who was a colleague of Geraldine's before she moved. The last book for me focused more on Geraldine as a person and this one was the polar opposite. At the halfway mark I had decided who was the murderer, and then subsequently changed my mind at least three times! This latest Russell novel was what I would call a real murder mystery. It was all the things a mystery should be, intriguing, enthralling, tense and utterly absorbing!

Although I loved this book it still wasn't quite as good as book 3 (Dead End). There is one major sticking point for me which is the storyline regarding Geraldine's birth mother. I'm not one for plot spoilers but I am getting impatient to find out more!!! Other than the fact that I miss Ian Peterson and her old colleagues, this latest Steel instalment was great. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am now eagerly awaiting the next one.

And you know what ? I really dislike the main character Miss Steel. She comes across, and excuse the term, as a bitch, needlessly. The author also makes lesser characters appear as idiots, which I'm sure a DS in the English police force would not be. All the books in this series could be well done, if they were rewritten by someone else with better skills. The stories themselves are excellent, but any decent editor would of stopped this from book 1.

This book was released in the Kindle version and the Audible version but not yet available in paperback, which I thought was an interesting inversion of the windowing used by some publishers. This is the Fifth Geraldine Steel book, but the first one I have read. It's ok as a stand alone.

I tried not to let the fact that there was a glossary of English police acronyms at the beginning bother me, but it's obvious that it did or I wouldn't mention it. Some readers aren't fans of English police procedurals and need to have it explained that DS means Detective Sergeant, although I would think that a little judicious editing would have allowed this to be explained in context.

The plot centers around the grotesque murder of the owner of a restaurant frequented by celebrities. I think that the author's decision to start off with a prologue that takes certain characters out of the running for the killer right away is a mistake. The suspense could have been ratcheted up there. Certain plot threads just get dropped along the way, which may happen in real police investigations, but are annoying in fiction.

Also, I have real doubt that the will that impels part of the plot would have been let stand as written under English law.

Someone compared it to the Prime Suspect series, but its a much blander story than Ms LaPlante's tales of a female officer on her way up the professional ladder.

I will say I did enjoy the narrator very well. That alone may make me back up and listen to a couple of the earlier books.
