They are on the hunt for a serial killer who is after six people who went to school together. With no forensic evidence, other than unidentified DNA, they are looking for a motive, to try and identify a killer. Gripping as ever, with a dramatic end. I finished it in time to read the Christmas short story(at the back of the book), in time for Christmas. There is plenty of mileage to be had from Geraldine Steele yet, and I am looking forward to book 11.
Class Murder is a good crime thriller. However, I feel far too much space is given to focusing on Geraldine's life and back-story; her demotion to Detective Sergeant, her move to York, her concerns about her twin sister's recovery for a heroin addiction, etc. All this is fine but does it really need so much coverage? In my opinion the novel would have been more dramatic if the amount of space spent on this aspect of the story was considerably reduced.
The central plot is quite gripping. It follows Geraldine and her new colleagues as they search for an elusive serial killer. There is a clever and unexpected twist towards the end of the story that I certainly did not foresee.
So, overall, I feel that it is fine as a standalone crime thriller in spite of it being a little bloated by the amount of space given to Geraldine's back-story. While it will obviously appeal to fans of this series, it has certainly piqued my interest to read another of the Geraldine Steel stories.
Geraldine has moved to York as an underling to Ian's now DI status, and she's struggling to come to terms with her new position. Ever on her guard to hide her previous law breaking activity to cover for her drug addict twin sister. A sister she didn't know she had, and treats Geraldine like a cash cow, and playing on her sympathy to great effect. Personally I thought someone with her brains and instincts, would be less gullible..........sister or not!
This a great read, as is always the case with Leigh's books. Complicated, puzzling, intriguing and plenty of blind alleys that keep you guessing till the end.
I hope Ian and Geraldine soon get back on track, they've both been through so much and that special something between them is intoxicating!
A great fan of this series, since book one. Thank you Leigh!
