This is more like it. I was decidedly underwhelmed by the first book in the series (Cold Sacrifice) and hummed and hawed a bit before buying this one but I'm glad I did as it had me turning the pages quickly to find out what was coming next. The plot, a man is murdered at York races, has all the requisite twists and turns to make it a good read and I particularly enjoyed all the dead ends and frustrations as it made it all seem more realistic. If I have one criticism I feel that Ms Russell's characters are all a bit stereotypical and not as well developed as they could be but this is minor as Race To Death is very much a plot driven novel. It is a good way to spend a few hours.
