I like Geraldine, mostly. She has a tendency to be a bit snappy and was ungrateful when she was helped by one of her team to sort out a problem with graffiti where she lives. I felt I wanted to put her in a bag and give her a good shake. I could almost see her bottom lip tremble when her DCI tore her off a strip. But hopefully she'll toughen up a bit in future books. At least she didn't come with shed loads of personal baggage.
The rest of the team all work together well, and I'd like to see more of Peterson's character.
The plot was good, with a really creepy bloke that stinks to high heaven and lives in a shed, and who is murdering young girls because in his unstable mind he's told by a voice in his head that he's clever.
It will he interesting to see how Geraldine and the others in her team progress.
I am glad I did. As the chapters went on, their place in the puzzle became clearer and grew.
Geraldine steel is a great character. There are a lot of books about at the moment with female detectives but Geraldine is a solid character. She doesn't have a sob story background. She isn't too ballsy. She isn't left out or picked on as the lone female in a mans world. She is a good hardworking detective who cares.
All in all I enjoyed this book and am glad there are plenty more in the series for me to read.
