4.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 29 Jan. 2006
This review is from: The Ladykiller (Paperback)
I've read a couple of martina cole novels and none have disappointed. She uses strong characters and a great story line to keep the reader interested. In this book, George Markham is an ordinary, if not a little creepy, man, whose nasty private hobby turns in to a public nightmare a his depraved fantasties become and real and he starts to terrorise the woman of Grantley. Patrick Kelly is a hard man - the most feared man in London, and when his daughter, Mandy, is attacked by the Grantley Ripper - he wants his revenge. Through the attack on his daughter he meets Kate Burrows, the DI in charge on the case.
As the crimes continue, the reader is given insight in to George's life and he childhood he had, along with the developing relationship betweem Kate and Patrick.
There are few twists and surprises, but the story and characters are strong and keep the reader interested. I was a bit disappointed with the end - it seemed a little rushed, but overall a great read - i'll be looking out for more!
