Game Point is the fourth book in the DCI Cyril Bennett series.

This is one detective crime series that just seems to go from strength to strength.

Cyril has really grown on me through out this series and I have to say in this book he has captured me heart and soul. I would say emotionally this has to be one of the hardest cases he has ever had to work on.

No murder case can be easy to work on but when a team member gets abducted, it gets a whole lot more personal. It becomes a race against time to find out who is behind it all in the hope of saving their colleagues life. I have to admit my heart was in my mouth as to whether they would make it in time and my pulse was racing.

I think with a colleague being abducted it really brings it home to the team and if anything thats what I really enjoyed seeing, them work as a team, and the support network between them all. Without a doubt it’s one of the best for team work in a crime series.

Game Point is without a doubt a fast paced and tense read. The author had me well and truly hooked and had me feeling like I had been through a wind tunnel until I was literally spat out at the other end. Without a doubt another five star read in this highly entertaining crime series.

You know when you really like a series, and by like, I mean love, and can't wait for the next instalment, but you also try to savour it, making it last until you hopefully get one more book eked into the series? Well this is one of mine. Although we have been lucky enough to not have to wait long, it was long enough.
Also, again, look at the cover, isn't it tempting?

Malcolm is one of my favourite authors and he came up with another masterful plot for a book. As always Malcolm takes an every day object and uses it to his advantage to make a crime that you wouldn't think would be possible. With his attention to detail and twisted crimes it made for a highly clever and intensive read.
There was a point in the book, where I could have slapped my head, and gone of course! When it clicked as to who was behind the crimes.
This is the fourth in the series (Only the Dead, Hells Gate, and Flesh Evidence),  and I can sincerely say that it is the best, it took me in and churned up my emotions, and as much of a page turner it was, I didn't always want to know the outcome. When I did, it was with trepidation and fear, then within a few pages again, the emotions turned.
Cyril and Owen are brilliant partners and having read the previous books, this was pacey, gripping and I really felt the tension of the case with Cyril as he helped unravel what was going on to save his team member.
I hope we see more from Malcolm, this really is a series that goes from strength to strength.

,The next installment of Malcolm Hollingdrake's iconic Detective series not only raises the bar but ensures you won't want to put it down until you have read the last word.
Cyril Bennett finds himself in the unusual position of being toyed with;how he deals with that and the loss of someone close provides a central theme for the novel.
A well written fast paced novel that can be read as a stand alone book but is oh so much better being read as part of the series.
I await further adventures with baited breath

DCI Cyril Bennett is facing his toughest, most brutal, and possibly the most exciting case in Game Point the most recent instalment in the Harrogate series. When a woman is found murdered, a long sharp implement forced through her eye into her frontal lobe, Cyril’s suspicions are aroused the murder is linked to the earlier murder of man, who had some of his fingers amputated and then force fed to him. A bicycle wheel is found next to the man with some of its spokes missing and Cyril believes the two are connected. The case escalates when an officer working on the investigation is abducted and Cyril faces a race against the clock to catch a psychopath he thought he had put away for good.

I’m really coming to love the Harrogate crime series, the books seem to be becoming stronger and stronger. Although Game Point can be read as a standalone, if you have previous experience with Cyril and his sergeant, Owen, you will enjoy it all the more. Cyril Bennett is really coming alive for me in my mind, and I love the idiosyncrasies that he has, it makes his character well-rounded and relatable. Owen is loveable, terrible dress sense notwithstanding, and much sharper than he comes across, and Liz the pathologist comes into her own even more in this book as well.

The book does take the reader to some dark places, and is more graphic than previous outings. The plot is intricate and planned well with just the right amount of police procedure mixed with action and stomach churning torment. The author has put an exceptional amount of time into research and into fine detail which gives the story a more realistic and to be frank, terrifying edge.

Another gripping story by Malcolm. I must say even I cringed at the hatpins! It's a race against time for Cyril and his team as one of his own is kidnapped. There really are some awful human beings on this planet that will do anything for avarice. The story is fast moving and well written. I don't think I'll go to the CWA event in Harrogate this year, too much crime!!
