If you like a novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat with your heart in your mouth, the DI Dylan series is definitely for you. Explosive violence and terrifying sexual scenes are all part of the job for DI Dylan. If you are like me, you shout: “Hurrah” out loud, when the evil criminals come to a suitably gruesome end. The trick of the writing is not just in the fast and furious pace but in the absolutely authentic attention to detail. What makes DI Dylan human and what keeps the poor man sane is his wonderfully supportive wife who, while undergoing her own all too human traumas, manages to fully support her husband, and keep their daughter safe. DI Dylan is no James Bond performing unbelievable feats of strength and sexual prowess, but a very human hard working copper. In his relations with his colleagues he shows at sense of humour; in his pursuit of criminals he shows no mercy. This is excellent writing that makes for a great read.

When The Killing Starts is the 7th novel in the DI Jack Dylan series, even though I have really enjoyed all the books in the series, without a doubt in my mind, When The Killing Starts is the best one to date. The authors have really upped their game in this book to deliver an horrific case that will chill any reader to the bone.

The story starts off with an extremely brutal crime that was slightly out of my comfort zone. I had a very mixed reaction to it. It certainly got the adrenaline going and the crime thriller fan in me couldn’t get enough, but as a human being I have to admit it did make for some uncomfortable reading. The remainder of the story though is Dylan and his team working on catching the culprits and boy what a gripping ride that was.

Not only does Jack have a serious crime to investigate, he also has a lot going off in his personal life. My heart really goes out to him in this book. He is always such a strong character but the readers get to see a vulnerable side to him and I loved how the authors tackle a tough subject and not only show how it affects the woman, but how it affects the man also.

It’s almost like Jack is two different people. At work he seems to wear this mask that has him appearing as a toughened detective that can pretty much handle anything but then when he is at home, the mask slips and we get a glimpse of the caring and loving man that he is that only his wife and daughter really gets to see.

When The Killing Starts really is quite an exceptional novel. The authors always manage to get me feeling a whole array of emotions which is something I never expected through reading crime books. The different crimes featured grab the readers attention and keeps them hooked from beginning to end.

If you enjoy a police procedure story, that's as dark and gritty as it gets then look no further. When The Killing Starts is the 7th in the DI Jack Dylan series, I have managed to read the first two in the series which I really enjoyed, but unfortunately I haven't had the time to read the other books due to the amount of TBR books on my ever growing pile, I was able to read this book as a standalone, but I'm sure I have missed the evolution of character through the previous books, which was a shame. When The Killing Starts is a gripping and a very disturbing read, the murders are graphic to say the least and made for a very uncomfortable read, and it's definitely not one for the faint hearted. I think the authors experience and involvement in high profile cases has provided the fuel that brings their writing to life, as they certainly don't "sugar coat" the hideous crimes the killers commit.

The Killing starts features heavily on the police procedure side of things and it so well described that as the reader I felt very much part of the investigation, the tension and feelings of urgency to solve the case added to the suspense. It was also interesting to see the effects such investigations have on the very people involved in the case. The protagonist DI Jack Dylan struggles to balance his personal life along side the demands of a very challenging job. Di Jack Dylan is a very likeable character he is tenacious, intelligent and relentless in his pursuit to catch the killers, so much so at times his job seems to come before his family and his health, as I'm sure this is the case for many DI's up and down the country.

I have soldiered on with this series expecting either Dylan's wife to stop bloody crying or any of the other women to be other than fatally flawed (post natal depression, boob jobs, hopelessly in thrall to bad guys, high-ranking yet somehow obsessed by holidays, yada yada) but the endless errors of spelling and grammar and the quite mental punctuation finally got to me and I decided I could take no more. I read somewhere that these people write for Scott and Bailey, where everyone decent is a woman, that must have really stuck in their craw. In fact, the most amusing part of reading this series is trying to imagine actors reading scripts out loud, if punctuation in the books is anything to go by then the script read throughs (or read threws as they, would, probably, have it) must be hysterical. Truly dreadful writing, desperately unlikeable characters you want to to slap and endless repitition. Reading the instructions on Preparation H would be better entertainment.
