"Thriller" très lent et sans intérêt. Il ne se passe rien (c'est même répété tout au long des pages) et aucune surprise: j'ai su qui était l'auteur des crimes dès le tout début.

Leigh Russell is now deservedly well-established among the best of British police thriller writers. Her novels are consistently well-written and equally well-researched. I don't want to describe the plot or give anything away. Fans of police thrillers will not be disappointed. DS Peterson will soon have his own following, as faithful as DI Steel's.

Clever move by the author to introduce a character from the DI Geraldine Steel books, DS Ian Peterson. I guess it's been done before, and it is just a variation on a theme, but it works very well. The plot is a bit contrived, but the writing is intelligent enough to get away with it. If you like the Geraldine Steel books you'll like this as well... definitely recommended.

C'est le premier livre que j'ai acheté de cette autheure et je l'ai trouvé pas mal du tout. J'aurais preferé un peu plus de procedural que les deboires du DS avec sa femme, mais attendant la suite.

Leigh Russell, who writes the DI Geraldine Steel series, brings back Steel's DS, Ian Peterson, in a series of his own.
Living too far from the station to be home in a flash is just one of the many issues the newlywed faces. His darling wife seems startled to find that his demanding job hasn't changed just because he's married to her.

When a middle-aged woman is found brutally murdered in a local park, it sets off a string of killings that will encompass a several prostitutes. With a female partner helping him investigate, Peterson finds himself questioning if his new wife will ever understand the time constraints a murder case brings his way.

I've read all the Geraldine Steel books, sadly. The new series is no better, in fact it's more of the same with different unlikable characters. All the main ones are horrid, then trying to be nice, but not really achieving it, to the lesser ones. I don't know why this author doesn't want us to like her characters, but apparently it's a now ongoing theme. The stupidity of some of the actions are beyond words, a DCI in the met bouncing up and down on his chair because they may have a clue ? Really ? The sad thing is, the base story line is not bad, it just needs a better writer, and editor, which is funny as the writer thanks the editor in the front of every book, that's after the 6 or so pages of gleaming praise she chooses to post, just so we understand how wonderful she is. In my thoughts, a good writer doesn't need to post all that to someone who has already bought their book, should be enough said.

I have been reading Leigh Russell since book one in the Geraldine Steel series. Something I will point out is that book one in that particular series was a little, shall we say, `lukewarm'. However, I could see it being a great series and it turns out I was right. Leigh Russell then went on to create a series that seems to get stronger with each book she writes and is now writing some of her best stuff featuring Geraldine Steel. One thing I mentioned in the early books was the colleague that worked alongside her Ian Peterson. He piqued my interest and I wanted to see more of him. Fast forward a few years and here we are with Ian Peterson featuring as the lead in the first of the series.

The book opening introduces us to Ian Peterson, and as he now works alone (Geraldine having re-located) we get a quick refresh on his colleagues such as Polly. Ian is now a DS but is looking for promotion. Pretty early on in the book we see the first of the murders take place and Ian, his colleague Rob and Polly start investigating the case. The actual crime element of this story wasn't as good as Leigh Russell usually produces. However, I think that is because this is the first in the series, so some groundwork is put in with the characters.

Ian Peterson as a character could potentially be just as good (if not better than Geraldine Steel). But, with this first book I found him a little bit lacklustre and to be honest he grated on me with all his moaning about his wife Bev. He is also a typical `people pleaser' and seems to bend over backwards for his wife! NOT a good trait for a DS. I am hoping that in future books, we see that side of him change and have a feeling that there are a lot of changes to come for him in the future.

The story was just too average, considering Leigh Russell's capabilities, but I can understand why that is. I figured out who the killer was pretty early on and I found that as I have read all of her other books I can see a pattern, and feel like this is just the platform for the whole series to take off from. Overall it wasn't a bad read, but I've certainly read better, especially from the lady herself. I really hope that people who are reading Leigh Russell for the first time persevere. If her previous series is anything to go by you certainly won't be disappointed. I can see this series improving with each book, much like it has for the Geraldine Steel series. I for one will certainly look forward to book 2 and hope we see more of a catchy storyline.

The reviews looked good, so I hoped Ian’s book would be an improvement. Instead we get the same dithering over his continuing marriage problems with a wife who wants him to always be around worshipping her as her mother’s and sister’s husbands do. Geraldine, of course, constantly worried over her lack of a relationship.
Worse, we get the exact same procedures, the same habits, the same schoolmarmy platitudes, the same dedication to the job so that at least one aspect of his life will be under control, as in the previous series.
The continuity is crap: they view the third corpse at the morgue on Friday, Ian thinks over her known history—brought up in care, proing since 15, 3 abortions before she had a son in a relationship with a man who subsequently died of an overdose. Then on Sunday he learns in a text that the son (who had been with a neighbour,) has been found. His wife gets upset and asks about the father. He answers: “We don’t know who the father is. I don’t suppose anyone will ever know now. His mother’s dead, and she’s the only person who could have told us, if she even knew.”
No. I’m wrong, there is a difference in this book. In every other, the cops went around questioning the neighbours as soon as possible after the murder. This one happened in a small block of flats, on the ground floor. The son was kept on the floor above, but only after the sitter took him and her own boy to the police station to report the missing mother, three days later, did she learn the woman was dead. So nobody noticed the SOCO team in the flat below, nor the cops hanging around the place? And none of the neighbours gossiped?
Then when the distraught son of the first victim tells the cops his father did it, and adds that Dad had also tried to strangle him, but he got out of that hold by elbowing his old man in the stomach, that gets Dad arrested for murder. No cop asked to see the strangle marks on the boy’s neck nor the elbow mark on Dad’s belly. Yeah, great police procedure.
Honestly, the only good thing I can say about Russell’s writing is that she always describes each character well, no matter how insignificant they are. And she gives each a good back story, though it matters nothing in furthering her plot. But it all helps fill more pages to bring the count up to 320pp. 2½ stars

Readers of Leigh Russell's Geraldine Steele series will enjoy this new one featuring Detective Ian Peterson. They had worked well together but she's gone to London now and Ian is married and going for promotion to Detective Inspector.

Poor Ian is finding marriage a rough go. His wife for some reason expected that after they were married he would spend less time at work, that she could expect him home every evening and could make plans for them to go out without him canceling due to his job. Of course that hasn't happened, and with his home life getting more unpleasant by the day, his job has become even more important to him. His long-for promotion seems to be taking forever; he feels stuck in a bad situation.

Meanwhile, his new case involves the murder of a middle-aged woman in a park. She was stabbed, yet has no defensive wounds. Her husband is the prime suspect because he inherits quite a bit of money. The marriage, they learn, was terrible and they had only stayed married because as a devout Catholic the victim refused to consider divorce. There is a teenage son who everyone says was close to his mother.

The husband, knowing he's the most likely suspect, pays a stripper to give him an alibi. As Ian investigates this link, he spends a lot of time at the strip club and with the girl and her roommate and little boy. All of the people involved give Ian life situations differing from his and giving him perspective on his own life.

I found the plot somewhat far-fetched but the characters for the most part sympathetic. There is a boy being abused by his mother's boyfriend, disaffected teens caught up in a cult, and the strippers trying to live day to day with little hope of a better life, and Ian wanting only a happy home for him and his wife.
