5.0 out of 5 stars Revenge is a dish best served cold ! 10 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book had been waiting to be read in my kindle for months. Since it was free on amazon, I had the notion that it would be another nonsense story and kept pushing it back. Now that I've finished it, I know how mistaken I was. This is an incredibly good, well written book.

A cold-blooded serial killer is on the loose...

Two L.A.P.D. homicide detectives, Ryan Magee and his beautiful redhead partner Syd Curtis (who are also secret lovers) are called to a murder scene in a car park at the back of a Hollywood nightclub. The scene is gruesome, bloody, the victim has been mutilated. Initial investigations indicate that the killer is probably a woman. In fact the victim has been seen in the company of a hot, blonde, green-eyed woman in a sexy red dress that night. She is hence appropriately dubbed 'The Lady in Red'.

From the beginning the killer's identity is known...she's Alice Waterman. She's not killing at random and she's killing for a reason. She has a list of men she needs to punish for something that happened eleven years earlier.

As the body count rises, Ryan and Syd realise that in order to trace the killer, they need to find a link between the victims, but this does not prove easy.

A 47 million dollar lottery winning ticket also plays a central role in this thriller. A ticket that everybody wants and that can change the lives of many people.

With the exception of one character, who I really hated, I really loved all the others, especially Ryan and Syd, the detectives. As well as hiding their relationship from everyone, they also keep secrets from each other. Secrets regarding their past lives. I even ended up liking The Lady in Red.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 13 Nov 2013

I read lots of books and occasionally I find one that REALLY impresses me. This book did just that.

It's an easy read with a great story which is easy to follow (a blessing if like me you don't have much time to read)

if you like thrillers and/or cop procedural books in a similar vein to Micheal Connelly then I would highly recommend this

I'm off to buy the author's other books

Excellent book I was hooked from the beginning, it's definitely hard to put down. It didn't take me long to read and was straight forward without any long drawn out scene setting which I prefer. I would recommend this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling and Entertaining Read 13 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be very easy to read and entertaining.I agree with the other review that there are some holes in the plot but to be honest you are swept along by the story and the strong characters that the author has created that they become of little significance.

Yes this book is no literary classic and I would think that most people who buy it are not looking for that kind of book anyway. What this book is, is a thrilling, entertaining and a roller coaster of a novel and I for one hope the author brings Ryan and Syd back.
