Publisher's Summary

George Markham has a nasty little hobby, one that erupts into an orgy of viscous sexual depravity. Patrick Kelly is a hard man. His one soft spot is his daughter, and when she falls victim to the Grantley Ripper, Kelly wants revenge. The DI in charge of the case is Kate Burrows. She feels for Kelly but her growing involvement with a known villain is putting her career at risk... As the forces of law and order and London's underworld converge in a huge manhunt, Kate fears she'll lose everything she's ever cared about... to the ladykiller.

    "Loved this book"
    Would you listen to The Ladykiller again? Why?

    Yes. I really liked this book. The story kept me wanting to know just what was going to happen next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't really have a favourite, I enjoyed it all.


    What does Annie Aldington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Yes definitely. Annie is a great story teller & brings it to life.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It didn't make me cry, it did however have me looking behind me every five minutes whilst walking my dog haha..... no, really!!

    Story
    "Dissapointing"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, there is more sub plots than plot, and the side stories swamp the main story


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have liked to explore the murderer a bit more, and I was definitely uninterested in the detectives love life


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The opening scene was quite dark


    Could you see The Ladykiller being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    Wouldn't be interested in any film or programme myself


    Any additional comments?

    We have a psychopathetic murderer on the loose, terrorising a small town, yet the book is all about the detectives relationship with a East End gangster and their sexual exploits

    Story
    "Not for the easily offended"
    Would you listen to The Ladykiller again? Why?

    Quite probably as I feel I might have missed some of the finer details - that said it is a story that bears a second read anyway.


    What does Annie Aldington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    An excellent narator, varied charactors each with their own little quirks - I always feel this adds much to the telling


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, this is a book to be enjoyed when you can relax and take it on board.


    Any additional comments?

    Not for anyone offended by bad language - that said it is in context.

    "Brilliant!"

    Captivating from the start, another brilliant Martina Cole novel. I'm so glad I discovered this impactful novelist. Easy to listen to with good stories and rounded characters - often graphic, especially in this case, but all part of the telling. Brilliant!

    "Narration pretty good but story was so sterotypica"

    This was my first Martina Cole story and probably will be my last. Not sure if it was due to the era it was set in or whether they are all like that but the sub plots were ridiculous. The main story about George was good and that is what kept me listening.
    however all the "Nonce" / "Ponce" and sexist descriptions got very boring after a while

    Story
    "used to like this author"

    I found this book really boring and the narration was like something out of "Eastenders" so many London cliche phrases stuffed into one book..."Leeeeve it aaaaaaout" "I aint done nuthin to deserve this daaaarlin".(my words) The characters were unbelievable and the story was slow and dull. I fast forwarded some of it to get to the end sooner. I was really surprised that this top selling author wrote such a poor story. Lots of unneccesary padding and overall it was more like someone's first attempt at a book. I wouldn't recommend when there are so many good crime thrillers out there.

    "Creepy Killer!"

    Wow! Interesting read. Enjoyable long listen that took me down surprising roads, some I am still travelling down in contemplation. Not much about the investegation, instead you are "in the head" of the criminal and detective and what drives of them.
