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.
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.
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
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.Read more ›
