I had never read (or heard of) Sheila Quigley until it was recommended to me. I brought the first book as, although debuts are not always the authors best, they certainly give you a feel for the sort of writer they are.

This book I eventually got round to, and I have to say I am very pleased that I did. The story starts by the reader meeting the Lumsdon family. The main characters seem to be the eldest daughter Kerry, but we also meet all the brothers and sisters, as well as their mother.

When a body is found on the infamous Seahills Estate Detective Inspector Lorraine Hunt joins the story. In addition to the body, Kerry's younger sister Claire goes missing and pretty soon Lorraine is trying to solve both crimes.

The writing and characters I thought were great. Before reading this book I had read other reviews and found that some readers didn't like the use of the word "yer". I was a little baffled by this as I take it as a way of the author putting across the kind of characters in the story. I found it was no different to reading books where characters have a cockney accent and letters are frequently missing from words used.

I liked character of Lorraine but found it a little harder to warm to Kerry; having said that, I still enjoyed the book a great deal. The crime element of the story covers the murky world of kidnap and as the story came towards the end, it sped up and we reached what I thought was a pretty good ending.

I would probably say that as a debut this is a cracking book, but I am also guessing that like many authors her work has got better the more she has written. I have already ordered book two in the series and look forward to reading the next one.

When I read the blurb, I thought this is my kind of book. Sadly I was disappointed. While the idea for the plotline was good, it did not live up to my expectations. I did not feel the fear I ought to have felt in Claire, the young girl who was kidnapped, or even in her family. Also, I would like to have seen more differentiation of character, particularly in their dialogue. The police inspector's language was little different from that of the criminals she was hunting or from the young people and the adults around them.
But what really put me off this book was the vast amnount of bad language. I accept that it was an integral part of the characters' lifestyle, but I'm sure the point would have been made more clearly by its more limited use.

Had this in my pile to read for a long time and maybe I should have left it a bit longer.

Working class family has one of it's girls abducted as part of a human trafficing ring, at the same time a headless corpse is discovered that has links to the past and the same family.

The author tries to make it authentic with too much swearing and use of words like "yer" instead of "you" and it just came over as irritating. While she captures the framily unit well and the bond and relationships between them, the rest is overly co-incidental or over the top.

This is not an awful book but it is one that was a bit of a struggle to get through and on the basis of this I don't think I will be picking up any more books from the author.

I am so glad to read the poor review of this book. Yes, bits of it were good - the family dynamics between Vanessa, Kerry, Robbie et al were excellent but so much was confusing and cringe-worthy. There were also way too many characters to keep them distinct from each other.
Lorraine and her hippy mother - mother was utterly unbelievable and given that Lorraine was such a super-woman the interactions with both Luke and the invisible husband just did not work.
What was the plot line about the gay husband who was also a transvestite and went to gay Elvis nights? And the HIV scare. All totally and utterly unbelievable rubbish. It should all have been edited out as it only serves to make the author look homophobic.
Worst of all was the drug culture becuase this was key to the plot of the novel. What drugs was Stevie supposed to be taking - the methods of drug use and his reactions to not having his drugs just did not make sense?
The author needs to do her homework a lot better and find a much better editor. I would certainly hesitate before parting with money for another dose of this.

How strange that vrogerson from London, Jenny Fox from Lincolnshire and jason bolt from england all have the same problems with their space bars and spellcheckers. Must be something to do with fans of pulp crime novels.
I have to say that, having heard about this book on the radio, I was very disappointed when I started reading it. I thought the plot and the characters were formulaic and clichéd and, I confess, I didn't finish reading it.
For me, there's a hint of surrealism in the publishers' comparison with Martina Cole and Catherine Cookson. Now there's a combination I never expected to see.
Generally, I rely on the blurb and critics when I'm deciding whether to buy a book. Normally, if I didn't enjoy a story, I wouldn't offer such a negative criticism. I would simply notch it up to bad luck. But in this case I was seduced by the radio hype and now I'm asking myself - is this a touch of the emperor's new clothes?
Or can someone explain to me exactly why I should finish reading this book?
