Book Description

11 April 2013

Four a.m on a wet stretch of the A1 and a driver skids out of control. Quick on the scene, Senior Investigating Officer Kate Daniels and partner DS Hank Gormley are presented with a horrifying image of carnage and mayhem that quickly becomes one of the worst road traffic accidents in Northumberland’s history. But as the casualties mount up, they soon realise that not all deaths were as a result of the accident . . .

On the other side of town a house goes up in flames, turning its two inhabitants into charred corpses. Seemingly unconnected with the traffic accident, Kate sets about investigating both incidences separately. But it soon becomes apparent that all is not what it seems, and Kate and her colleagues are one always step behind a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

Review

"If proof were needed that Hannah's DCI Kate Daniels is a great addition to the crime scene, then here it is, a third corking case to keep you up at night."

5.0 out of 5 stars DCI Kate Daniels SERIES 25 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Another great instalment in this crime series from Mari Hannah. The Murder Wall introduced Kate Daniels, a strong and driven DCI, Settled Blood developed the characters in another tense plot and Deadly Deceit confirmed this as a crime series well worth pursuing. All three have pace and tension. Highly recommended. Bring on the next episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Significant addition to the Kate Daniels series 12 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
`Deadly Deceit' is the third book in Mari Hannah's DCI Kate Daniels series, and is the strongest - and darkest - by far.

The main action takes place over just five days in June 2010, against a background of a sticky summer in Newcastle's deprived West End. The story opens with DCI Daniels and DS Hank Gormley en route to a fatal arson in the West End. They are delayed by a truly horrific multi-vehicle accident on the A1, at which they assist. All is not what it seems at both incidents, and these two apparently unconnected events form the basis of this intricately-plotted thriller, which builds relentlessly to a nerve-shredding climax.

Readers of Hannah's previous books will know that she is a consummate story-teller, but she has surpassed herself with the ambitious complexities of `Deadly Deceit.' The narrative has depth and meticulous attention to detail, and many surprising twists to the plot, right to the very end. Police procedures are accurate and integrated into the story, without ever making it sound like an investigator's manual.

A really pleasing aspect of this story is the continued development of characters introduced in the earlier books. All of Kate's team of murder detectives is here, and their lives and careers develop believably. Two important women from Kate's personal life play a significant part in this book in revealing to us some of Kate's emotional turmoil. Mari Hannah has also created two new and vivid principal characters, who drive the plot of `Deadly Deceit.' To avoid spoilers I shall not name them, but they are superbly realised - careful and subtle layer-by-layer creations. One character does not, initially, attract empathy (I now know what a "Scotswood stare" is!) but Hannah gives us a fully rounded portrayal.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a page turner 14 Mar 2013
By bodicea
Format:Hardcover
What another great book from Mari Hannah. A plot with so many twists and turns I did not want to put it down. What a twist at the end. The characters are interesting and specially the main one. Looking forward to seeing that developing in future books I hope. I also liked the fact places I knew were mentioned. I can't wait for the next book from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Mari Hannah 11 April 2013
By Lisa
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the third book in the DCI Kate Daniels series, and is a very strong addition. Daniels is an engaging and complex character, sometimes infuriating, especially when she puts her job before her own personal happiness. She is always willing to go the extra mile to see justice for the victims of crime, and to do all she can to lead her team effectively. Daniels is likeable, and the relationships she has with her colleagues are believable and well drawn. Above all, Daniels is 'real' - a person you could imagine meeting, talking to, liking. This, for me at least, is essential if the reader is to engage with the main character, to care about their life and what happens to them, to be interested in them, and so in the book as a whole. Hannah achieves this very effectively.

The story moves quickly, though not at the expense of detail. The plot is fascinating, original, and all the strands of the story blend together at the end of the book in an exciting and nail biting final few chapters. The dialogue between the characters feels realistic and fresh, and the characters are well drawn and believable. Hannah's descriptions of the road accident at the beginning of the novel and its aftermath are particularly effective, and so well written that the reader can see the whole horrifying scene smoking and smouldering in front of their eyes, much as Daniels and her colleague Hank Gormley can. You feel as though you are standing there with them, the smells, sounds and sights are as real to you as they are to the characters.

To summarise, this is an exciting, fast paced read that I would highly recommend. The other books in the series are 'The Murder Wall', which introduces Daniels and her colleagues, and 'Settled Blood'. the second in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Daniels is now always on my "to read" list 23 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the third book in Mari Hannahs' series featuring DCI Kate Daniels. The book starts with two seemingly unconnected plot lines - a house fire that leaves a father and his young child dead, then an appalling pile up on the A1. Daniels and her sidekick DS Hank Gormley soon find that one of the roadside deaths is not what it seems and that the two cases are in fact connected. As they join the dots, they find a ruthless killer luring in the background - someone who is clever and resourceful, with a knack of staying invisible and one step ahead of the Police, which makes Daniels' and Gormley's job harder than ever.
