3.0 out of 5 stars Same old, same old 30 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed Leigh Russell's books but it's about time the format was changed, this most recent one is a step too far. All the stories are basically the same - so by now surely even the dozy Ms Steel should realise she is going to end up in danger having failed to see the baddie staring her in the face, not to mention disregarding common sense and police procedures and going to places alone and without back-up. Yet still she is saved in the nick of time. Yawn. Please change the record - I like the characters but a new plot would be a good idea.

Yet again, another great mystery and murder book from Leigh Russell. Twists and turns at every page. I didn't guess whodunit in this one so I sort of enjoyed it more. Keep 'em coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fatal Fact 6 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A thriller which was very easy to read. Despite there being so many characters, Leigh Russell, is able to describe them so that the reader just can't get them confused with one another. Will read more of Leigh Russell and his detective Geraldine Steel.
