Summary

Another thrilling case featuring Detective Inspector Geraldine Steel.

When a man dies in a gas explosion, the police suspect arson, and the Murder Investigation Team is called in to investigate. But the case takes on a new and terrible twist when a local villain is viciously attacked. As the police enquiries lead from the expensive Harchester Hill estate to the local brothel, a witness dies in a hit-and-run. Was it coincidence - or cold-blooded murder?

The Murder Investigation Team has problems of its own – and so does Geraldine Steel. A shocking revelation threatens her peace of mind as the investigation races towards its dramatic climax.

Disappointing

I was very impressed with the first book in the Geraldine Steel series and was anticipating many happy hours of listening when I found out that there were 4 books in the series. Unfortunately books 2 and 3 do not quite live up to the promise of the first book, although they are still an easy enjoyable listen with a likeable main character. The characterisation is pretty good in all the books but books 2 and 3 suffer from over simplified plots.

Really Enjoyed

As with Leigh Russell's first offering. Really looking forward to next book and following the personal life and career of Geraldine Steel which seems to run alongside the main story. I chose the first book partly because I think the narrator is absolutely brilliant - really pleased I did now as the books are so good.
