5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent British crime fiction! 22 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Two women are found dead three weeks apart. One, the daughter of a police officer, the other of a local gangland boss. Although they are from very different backgrounds, as the investigation into their murders unfolds, it appears there is a link between them. It is up to Detective Sergeant Laura McGanity and local news reporter Jack Garrett to stop a killer before he chooses his next victim...

The 5th Novel in the McGanity/Garrett does not disappoint. Fast paced and well written.

Neil White has created a deftly skilled crime fiction novel. The McGanity/Garrett series is fast becoming good enough to be ranked alongside the Tom Thorne series by Mark Billingham and Val McDermid's Tony Hill series. It may be the 5th book in the series, but it can be read as a standalone novel. However, I would recommend reading the other books available to get a truer outlook on the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! 12 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I couldn't put this down and was gripped from the first page to the last. Definitely a bargain buy and I can see why it is Amazon's best-seller in this genre. This is a great British crime thriller with excellent central characters and an intriguing plot that keeps you wanting to read on. After reading the predecessors in this series I wasn't disappointed and can't wait for the next .If you haven't read them then you're definitely missing out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cold Kill 10 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Two Girls are found murdered 3 weeks apart, one daughter of Don Roberts notorious gangster and one of Mike Chorley Local copper. However, not is all its seems as Jack Garrett local newspaper reporter soon finds out they are connected by dark and mysterious secret.
This a real page turner and had it finished in three sittings, Excellent plot and had you guessing right up to end on how it was going to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, and very well written 5 Aug 2011
By H. Nye
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Couldn't disagree more with 'happy reader' - I found this book extremely gripping, to the extent that I read into the early hours of the morning as I kept saying to myself "I'll just read ONE more chapter..."! It is extremely well written - no annoying spelling or grammatical errors, as in the previous book I downloaded (by a different author, I hasten to add!). I have now downloaded a couple more of Neil's books, and can't wait to start reading them too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Striking Start 2 Aug 2011
By Jooli
Format:Kindle Edition
This book starts with a shock but then bends and twists in a way that is not exactly 'unputdownable' but is certainly good to read.

The plot is revealed throughout rather than at the end and although you don't have to be a detective to work out what's going on, it's almost as much fun because you do know.

I had not read any of Neil White's books before and so I appear to have started at the wrong end of the relationship for Jack and Laura but it stands on its own as a good crime novel.

I found it very easy to visualise the action (graphically so, at times) and could see it moving to TV as an enjoyable Sunday night drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Crime Novel 2 Aug 2011
By M. Stevens VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the fifth Neil White book and once again features the police officer Laura McGainty and her boyfriend Jack Garrett; in previous novels the latter has been the main character, but in this instance, the story is well balanced between the two, and if anything, their is more weight given to the former.

Two murders have taken place in the northern town of Blackley, and the police realise they could have a potential serial killer on their hands; however, is there a connection between the two women, one the daughter of a police officer, the other of the local "crime lord"..... McGainty and her team undertake the formal investigation, whilst Garrett, having orininally been tasked with writing a story on the blight of northern towns, starts to use his own methods to investigate the crime in a different way, that only a journalist can.

Well written, graphic (certainly the last 40 or so pages are not for the feint-hearted), the novel is certainly a "page turner". Characters are well developed, and have certainly moved on from the last Neil White I read (the excellent Last Rites). There are a number of twists and turns in the story to keep you guessing as to who the killer is, and why he selected his victims, so all in all a decent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced, totally gripping thriller. 10 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book I have read by this author but it definately wont be the last. I was completely hooked from page one and couldn`t put it down. There was no dip in tension, and with the twists and turns it kept me guessing till the very last page. A must read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful 5 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I wish I'd started from the first book but I just happened upon this and thought I'd give it a go . It's a good storyline with some twists and turns that I didn't expect , fast paced and keeps you in suspense making you desperate to turn the page . Overall it's a good thriller that seems to sit independently as well as part of a series.
