Deity | [Steven Dunne]

Deity

A brilliant new serial killer thriller from a hugely talented British author to rival the best from Mark Billingham, Peter James and Peter Robinson.

Publisher's Summary

A brilliant new serial killer thriller from a hugely talented British author to rival the best from Mark Billingham, Peter James and Peter Robinson. When four Derby College students are reported missing, few in Derby CID, least of all DI Damen Brook, pay much attention. But then a film on the internet is discovered purporting to show the students committing mass suicide. If it's real, why did they kill themselves when they had such bright futures ahead of them? If the suicides are faked, why the set up and where are the students? And if they're dead and have been murdered, who on earth could have planned such a bizarre and tragic end to their promising lives? Combining intricate forensics with meticulous detection and the warped psychology of a psychopath, Deity is a serial killer thriller of the highest order to rival the very best of Mark Billingham, Peter James and Peter Robinson.

    "Deity"

    I think i first picked this book up in the Derby Waterstones and thought how different this sounded being based in Derby which is local to me, so when i saw it on audio i thought why not. This was a brilliant story based on these teenagers that just go missing just like that!
    But things start to happen when they film their disappearance on a website called Deity and the clock keeps ticking to the next event for the police its gripping and sad and disturbing all in all a fantastic story.

    Story
    "Bad in the extreme ! The story was far fetched,"
    Would you try another book written by Steven Dunne or narrated by Gareth Armstrong?

    Gareth Armstrong was good at reading what was at best a far fetched plot,


    What was most disappointing about Steven Dunne’s story?

    Plot changes, lead has the usual back story,his daughter put in danger !!! Really ! The author tried way too hard to get twists and turns,and in the end just confused the story,


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Gareth Armstrong?

    He was good


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Deity?

    The part with the son who is not son !

    Story
    "Interesting premise, a bit long-winded"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I might recommend it as holiday reading, the story is quite entertaining.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Steven Dunne? Why or why not?

    I might, because the idea behind the story is quite interesting and original.


    What about Gareth Armstrong’s performance did you like?

    He does a good job.


    Did Deity inspire you to do anything?

    No, and I don't think it was meant to.

    Retired and living in Spain, I am an avid reader. Audible has added a new dimension as I can experience excellent readers/actors too.

    "attention grabbing"

    I loved and hated this book. I hated the horror but loved the doggedness of the cops especially the inspector. Gareth Armstrong's reading and characterisation were stunning and I loved the north Wales English accents of a couple of characters, very authentic. Brilliant, thanks folk.

    "Different"

    Enjoyable listen with well-rounded characters and a good plot.
    It's always a good book when I don't fast forward a bit because the part I'm listening to doesn't hold my interest. This one held my interest right to the end.
