Neat trick if you can get away with it! This is a great 'who done it' but the killer is fairly obvious from quite near to the beginning of the book. And yet the writing is so intelligent it is with great credit to Leigh Russell that this doesn't detract from one's enjoyment - it's another super read from this excellent thriller writer. Thoroughly recommended.

At last, i really enjoyed this, it was so much better than the first two books. Far less waffle and got on with the story. Sticking with it, well done.

HASH(0x94ee5a68) étoiles sur 5 The best of the bunch! 19 septembre 2011
Par BCB & More - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
In Leigh Russell's third installment of 'DI Geraldine Steel' Series we once again see Geralding thrown into a messy and disturbing case. In this particular book, headmistress Abigail Kirby is found dead in a park, but in this instance it seems that her tongue has been cut out. DI Geraldine Steel, along with her colleague Ian Peterson are put on the case, and when a potential witness is blinded and murdered, the case seems to get out of control.

I admit that I am a sucker when it comes to 'series' featuring the same people. In particular I liked Leifh Russell as I have read each of her books from her debut novel 'Road Closed'. This time around the writing is so much better as the story flows so easily. LeighRussell is a writer that is going from strength to strength with every book she writes.

I found that in the first book we didn't learn enough about Geraldine herself, or the people she worked with. In this book Geraldine's personal life seems to run alongside her career and we get to see the more emotional side to her which I loved. We also see a lot more of Ian Peterson and this is a true testemant to how much better this book is than her first.

The characters have developed so much more and as reader you feel like you are taking their life journey with them. Geraldine is far from perfect but is a complete workaholic who has some serious personal issues that can sometimes affect her judgement. It is things like this that add the touch of realism to this book.

The crimes in the book are as ususal gruesome and bloody, and extremely well detailed, without being too over the top. We see the workings of real police who make some huge errors along the way (which is always nice).

I only have one criticism about the book and that is that I had a sneaking suspicion of the killer around halfway through. Having said that, I do that with many of the books I read. Apart from being suspicious (and then being correct in my assumption) this book is absolutely, 100% the best book Leigh Russell has written so far. I am now eagerly awaiting the next installment and there were major parts of Geraldine's life that are unanswered and I realloy need to know more about.

Thoroughly reccommended and I truly think that Leigh Russell has now created a series that can rival other major crime writers out there. I would suggest starting at book one and working your way through as by the time you get to this one you will be itching to read book 4. Can't wait for the next one!

HASH(0x94ee5abc) étoiles sur 5 Loving DI Steel...great detective 19 août 2011
Par Kathy Kaiser - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This third book in Russell's series starring DI Geraldine Steel is well-done and intriguing. Along with the day-to-day workings of the British police system, the unexpected direction of the various crimes in this police procedural were quite interesting. As she did in her previous books, Russell doesn't just stick to one main crime, but brings other offshoots to fore. We also gain more insight into Geraldine. I'm finding her struggle with her family (I won't say more to avoid spoilers) a great window into her personality. Russell has created a complex, tough, vulnerable character in Steel, one I can't wait to get to know better and follow in future investigations.

HASH(0x94ee5d98) étoiles sur 5 Great book 20 août 2013

This was my first police procedure book, and it was very refreshing. The author is English and it was interesting to read, it all started with the death of the head of a school, as the plot develops we meet other characters, even thought early on you can identify the killer,it took till the end of the book, to answer many questions. I would read this author again.

HASH(0x94ee5c90) étoiles sur 5 Another DI Steel success 18 septembre 2011
Par Martha A. Cheves - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Abigail's head hurt. She was afraid something was wrong with her eyes. She couldn't see anything. A heavy weight was pressing down on her chest. She fought against a feeling of nausea, and tried to turn her head but couldn't. "Hello," she croaked. No answer. She was alone in the darkness... "Hello," she called again. Her throat hurt and there was a strange smell. By now Abigail had realized she was in hospital, coming around from an operation. Nurses of all people should have known better than to leave her lying on her back. There was a risk she might choke to death if she were sick. She seemed to lie there for hours, drifting in and out of consciousness. "Hello," she called again. "Is anyone there? Please?" The light dazzled her "Am I in hospital?" she asked. Her voice sounded far away. "Are you a doctor?" "Hello, Mrs. Kirby. Mrs. Abigail Kirby." The man smiled. "How are you feeling?" He held up a syringe. Clear liquid glistened on the tip of the needle. The man leaned forward, his head framed by an aura of white light.

Those would be some of Abigail Kirby's last words. Her body would be found later in the woody part of the park with her tongue missing. Abigail left a daughter Lucy, a son Ben, a husband Matthew and a world of questions for Detective Inspector Geraldine Steel and Detective Sergeant Ian Peterson to sort through and find the answers. When another victim is found later with his eyes missing, the two detectives are still baffled and without answers. What they think might be their one and only clue comes when Lucy disappears in what the family believes to be a runaway but turns out to be a bit more. But still the clues are bleak. Will they find Lucy before something really bad happens to her? Will there be other murders with missing body parts before the killer is found and stopped? Good questions and the answers won't reveal themselves until the end.

As with Road Closed, Author Leigh Russell kept me guessing. She gave the clues but I ignored them until the end finding myself not believing the ending as the true killer was finally revealed. Just as Jeffery Deaver said Leigh Russell has `A brilliant talent in the thriller field.' A very enjoyable book.

HASH(0x94ee62f4) étoiles sur 5 A Bloody Revenge 30 janvier 2014
Par Amy L. Yingling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
A fast paced mystery filled with revenge and ghastly murders. Makes one truly wonder about the tangled web one weaves throughout his or her day and how those decisions could have far reaching implications. Even though this is part of a series it is also an excellent stand alone read, but I found most of the books in this series to be.

I gave it three out of five stars because I found it to be a solid reading experience. Enjoyable, well-written and satisfying. Marked by three or four issues, all-in-all not too shabby.
