Product Description

Product Description

From the outside, the house was unremarkable. Just one of many on an ordinary, suburban estate. But inside was a different matter. With pink ribbons and pink walls, stuffed toy animals everywhere and a dining table laid out for a tea party, it was a doll's house. The doll was sitting at the table. Life size, with blonde, pigtailed hair and rosy red cheeks, dressed in her best pink party dress. Her finger and thumb curled round the handle of a fine china teacup. An adult woman. Covered in blood. Eviscerated. Dead. In all his years on the force, DI Phil Brennan of the Major Incident Squad has never encountered a scene like it. As he investigates he uncovers more bizarre revelations and realises that he must act fast; the next murder has already been planned and the victim is close to home ...

4.0 out of 5 stars A new location but the same problems 4 July 2013
By Anne TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Following the previous novels where the activities of serial killers came a little too close to Marina and Phil (and baby Josephina) for comfort they relocate to Birmingham. Marina gets a job in the university and Phil joins the murder team in the local police force. Soon Phil is immersed in a gruesome and strange murder investigation with a team he is having to learn to trust and strange things have happened to Marina. Very shortly afterwards it becomes apparent that both of them are personally involved in what is happening and that lives may be at risk if they do not solve the mystery quickly.

As is usual in this series of books the mystery is convoluted and nothing is quite as it seems. The pace is quick and the new characters are realistic and interesting. The story is nowhere near as gruesome as the publicity may make you believe although it is true that this is not a cosy murder and there are some very nasty perversions at the heart of the plot.

I was dismayed that yet again the investigator and their family was at threat in this book. Will the author(s) ever give Phil and Marina a break ? I was also concerned that again the story revolves around Marina not sharing something with other people - you would have thought that she would have learned better after her experience in the last book or also because she is a psychologist who should really know why she is hiding things and rise above it.

All in all, however, this is a gripping read with plenty of action and a clever puzzle at the heart of the book. Very enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a tea party you want to be invited to! 12 Nov 2013
By C. Bannister TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Doll's House is the fifth in the Brennan and Esposito series. After the shock ending of the last book Marina Esposito is now working at the university in Birmingham and DI Phil Brennan has joined the police there. A new start with baby Josephine... what could go wrong?

Well... Phil quickly gets involved in the most strange of murder investigations after a woman is found dead, strangely she is dressed as a doll and sat as if she was drinking a cup of tea at a doll's tea party.

Tania Carver raises the tension swiftly and it never lets up throughout the book. With a dual narrative giving the reader insight into the killer's mind this book is nothing short of shocking. Although this isn't the first time dual narrative has been used in a crime novel in this book it soon becomes apparent that everything may not be quite as it first seems. The reader can work alongside the police trying to guess the motive of this most gruesome of murders.

Living in a new location both Brennan and Esposito have new colleagues to meet and new bonds to make, for Phil this isn't going to be straightforward with a certain level of resentment surrounding his new role. Marina is also finding her feet with her university colleagues when strange things begin to happen.

As with the previous books in this series the author doesn't hold back on gore, this is not reading for the faint-hearted, however if you are feeling brave this is a really good read and I for one am looking forward to the next in the series.
