It's an easy read which takes you through the old fashioned "who done it". Unfortunately the clues are fairly heavy and obvious so it isn't a surprise when the killer is revealed. Good holiday reading as it doesn't need too much thought. Its builds on DI Steel's character and leaves some avenues open so looking forward to reading more in the next instalment.

I am really hooked on the Geraldine Steel stories. Easy reading, good, fascinating plots, realistic police procedures and best of all an insight into the characters' home lives which make the mystery more interesting. Unfortunately I get through them too fast. This one has all the right ingredients - a headmistress far more interested in her career than that of her family, an abandoned husband with his clinging mistress and as a result their dysfunctional teenage daughter. Some people have said they knew who committed the murder straight away, but although I had an idea I could not work out why and it really baffled me. Please keep on writing as I want to keep on reading.

I bought this book on the strength of having read 2 previous Kindle versions of Leigh Russell`s offerings involving DI Geraldine Steel. As in the previous books, a really interesting and involving story exploring the complexity of human nature and presenting the heroine as a humane person with her shortcomings as well as her better points.
Very enjoyable read and I would definitely recommend.

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).

As always this series of books makes excellent reading. Very much "can't put down" and "must finish" but never fail to tidy up loose ends.

Really enjoyed this book. Easy reading with no overcomplicated twists but sufficient intrigue to keep your attention. Worked out who the killer was early on but the logic behind his grisly deeds kept the suspense going right til the end. Overall, a very enjoyable read.
