Description du produit

Revue de presse

"ROAD CLOSED is the second book by Leigh Russell, and the second featuring Detective Inspector Geraldine Steel. If you enjoyed CUT SHORT, Russell's first book, you will find this one even more tense and gripping.

Well-written and absorbing right from the get-go, with just the right amount of guess-work for the reader. My only criticism is that it is too interesting and I read it far too quickly!

Work continues to go well for Geraldine. She is good at what she does and is a dedicated member of the murder team. ROAD CLOSED sees her initially involved in a suspicious death that seems to be part of a suspected arson attack but soon turns out to be one of a series that may be connected to a frustratingly long-running spate of thefts in the area. As seems to be increasingly the norm for busy career women these days, Geraldine's personal life leaves a lot to be desired, and there are a few nasty shocks waiting for her fans in this regard. Geraldine takes solace in the fact she has a nice flat, a good job, and the odd bottle of wine to enjoy in the evening. She immerses herself in her work and puts a brave face on it, when a simple day off would surely do her so much good.

Unlike CUT SHORT, the killer is not as immediately obvious to the reader this time round. When the murder team finally start to make progress, they are thwarted by the, strangely coincidental, violent deaths of several of their key witnesses. Tension slowly builds and you start to get an idea of who might be behind the grisly mess as the pace picks up and more people get hurt. The last thirty pages or so tie everything up beautifully, with an exhilarating climax that you don't see coming until it is too late and there is nothing you can do to help but continue to read...

I am an avid fan of this new author and her work. Geraldine is a gifted, strong and likeable character, although her personal life and ability to select rubbish men just makes me sad. I am hoping she will find her soul mate in the next book - but have to wait for ages to find out!" --Amanda Gillies, Euro Crime

"Perfect character building... cleverly written... can't wait for the next one." --bestbookstoread.co.uk

"Well-written and absorbing right from the get-go... with an exhilarating climax that you don't see coming." --Amanda Gillies, Eurocrime

"New star of crime fiction, Leigh Russell's chilling psychological thriller is terrific & terrifying!" --Clem Chambers

"A gripping, fast-paced read, pulling you in from the very first tense page narrative." --Sam Millar, New York Journal of Books

"A rare talent." --Daily Mail

"Impressively dependable" --The Times

"Unmissable" --Lee Child

"A brilliant talent." --Jeffery Deaver

"Taut and compelling." --Peter James

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.

First book I've read by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It could be a tad long-winded at times, but it's a good, tangled plot with an interesting 'lead role', Geraldine Steel. Recommended - I'll definitely read another Leigh Russell book.

Whilst i did enjoy this second book in the DI Steele series i also found it very long winded getting to the point which then made it somewhat boring in places.

I'm glad to see a more human side to Geraldine, she was too much of an automotan. I liked how she showed emotion and started getting more personal with colleagues.

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!

As always, Leigh Russell writes a very tight, edge of the seat, exciting mystery. You think you know the ending, but....there's always a surprise.
