Product Description

Review

Praise for Cold Killing:

‘A striking debut from a former Murder Squad Detective, Delaney is not his real name, but there is no doubt about his inside knowledge and ability to convey it’ Daily Mail

‘A confident, aggressive and very promising debut by a former Met detective’ The Times

‘An authentic voice on how the police operate with a stone-cold killer striking randomly around London … scary authenticity’ The Sun

About the Author

Luke Delaney joined the Metropolitan Police Service in the late 1980s and his first posting was to an inner city area of South East London notorious for high levels of crime and extreme violence. He later joined CID where he investigated murders ranging from those committed by fledgling serial killers to gangland assassinations.

I couldn't wait to read this book after Luke Delaney's fantastic first book "Cold Killing" which was probably my favourite read all year,but i was to be so disappointed with this.
The story started well but there was far too much tedious and repetative build up,far too many nasty rape and masturbation scenes which i found very uncomfortable to read and then suddenly the book ended in about six pages leaving me feeling i had lost a couple of chapters somewhere.
Not a book i would recommend.

Whilst I found the first book in this series quite interesting (the hedonistic psychopath, plus the clever twist at the end), the second DI Corrigan book deepened the problems I had with the first one and I won't continue reading any more books from this author.

My biggest quibble is the main character himself. Unlikabke, totally self obsessed, humourless, rude, arrogant, and not to forget his ridiculous talent 'to feel what the killer must have felt' due to his past experiences. I was about to quit when, at some point, two other characters discuss Corrigans talent and one of them serouisly asked if Corrigan was psychic. I just skipped through the last chapters.

My other big problem with this book is the repated description of rape and masturbation to the point where I thought 'ok, ive read this before. Why again and again?' I do understand the necessity to describe it the first time round to show the absolute horrific nightmare these women go through, and it did make me feel sick, but by the third time it simply felt gratuitous and completely unnecessary.

Im done with this author.

Thoroughly enjoyed the second instalment of DI Corrigan. In the sequel to Cold Killing you really get a feel for who he is and what makes him tick.
In this book we see DI Sean Corrigan try to get into the depraved mind of abductor and murderer Thomas Keller and what a nasty nasty mind it is too.
DI Corrigan is of course a fantastic lead character, full of mystery and intelligence but it was also great how his sidekick Sally's character is developed. Being a girlie, it's good to have a female character to be able to relate to.
All in all I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good, gritty crime novel ☺

Unfortunately this author writes the same sort of thing over and over again. After two of these books, you only need to read the

I shall not be buying any more books in this series. After a few chapters, you can see which way the book is heading in its storyline, and can virtually "write it in your own mind." Very predictable, to anyone with an imaginative mind that is reading it.

Within the first ten pages of The Keeper by Luke Delaney, readers will find themselves ensnared within a shocking and terrifying suspense thriller. The simplistic way in which Louise Russell is snatched from her home by Thomas Keller, only to wake up naked in a cage, is more nerve-wracking than a brutal and bloody assault...because monsters rarely look like monsters and they strike when their victims are least likely to expect to be attacked. Knowing that time is running out for Louise is almost as painful to bear as the torture inflicted upon her by her captor.

The main POVs come from Detective Sean Corrigan, the perpetrator Thomas Keller and the victim Louise Russell; there are a few other minor POVs that offer a great deal of insight into the main characters. However, Delaney doesn't reveal the source of Keller's behavior until the very end. Readers must follow the bread crumbs along with Corrigan.

There were sections of the book where the descriptions seemed to be dragging on, and the conversations between characters seemed a bit forced, but the novel held my attention from beginning to end. The epilogue made me realize that Corrigan is a character from a series; unfortunately, this detail has been left out of the marketing in the US. I don't understand why publishers think they have to use different book covers and descriptions for the UK & US.

This author would probably do much better in the US if the marketing mentioned that this is part of a series. I had no idea this is "Book 2" until I came to the Amazon UK site.

This is the second Sean Corrigan book Ihave read, hoping to get a better picture of the detective but I didn't. I found the constant rummaging in grubby track suit bottoms boring and repetitive. We know who abducted the women from the outset and he is a stereotype.i couldn.t believe. how the detective drew his conclusions from the information he was given.i read to the end but didn't find it a satisfying detective story.

Sean Corrigan is on the case again. This time he needs to find a missing person, Louise Russell, who was taken from her home in broad daylight. What follows is a somewhat gruesome story of terror and madness. A body is found in woodland, but it is not Louise. Will he find her in time? You must read the book to find out.
Sean seems to be being watched by his superiors- not quite sure what this was about - hence four stars and not five.

If you have read my review of Luke Delaney's first book in this series titled Cold Killing you will know that whilst I was in hospital following two heart attacks the nurse had given me the first two books in this series and once I had started reading them I just could not put them down. They are a really good Police fiction series and whilst I won't spoil the story line for you by telling you what happens I would just say do yourself a favour and buy the first two books in this series you won't be sorry. They are ideal for the long winter nights or even ideal for reading whilst on your holidays next summer!!
