But when she finds herself pitted against a twisted killer preying on young women, she quickly discovers how wrong she is. I am a fan of Thrillers, Suspense and Mystery. Alone, Geraldine clutched the edge of the bare table and howled. The park is a place where children play, friends sit and gossip, people walk their dogs, or take a short cut to avoid the streets.

But sadly, since I started writing, I have very little time for reading. The plot was good, with a really creepy bloke that stinks to high heaven and lives in a shed, and who is murdering young girls because in his unstable mind he's told by a voice in his head that he's clever. Gerta hoped she might see the fit young gardener who sometimes worked there and smiled as she passed through the open gateway. Always on the side is a cup of Earl Grey Tea. The world was full of sin. I want all the local hostels checked, and a thorough grilling of anyone recently released or out on parole.
Geraldine Steel expects the quiet town of Woolsmarsh to be dull. Two weeks later they phoned me and shortly after that signed me up for three books. . Thank you for your interest in this tour. We can leave it for today, if you like.
I look forward to story number two! My Review - 3 More Sugar Please This was a solid Crime Thriller that had interesting characters but it just didn't have my heart racing. She was killed about twenty-four hours before her body was discovered in Lyceum Park this morning by a young child playing in the bushes. Murders, the police and a smelly bloke who lives in a shed. Geraldine's hunt for the severely disturbed killer soon makes her a target. Geraldine Steel expects the quiet town of Woolsmarsh to be dull. Mummy never let her play with sticks but Mummy wasn't there. All too soon the press are asking questions about the competence of the officers in charge and women are protesting about their safety.
She smiled while, inside her head, laughter bubbled. The ending was a teense bit flat. Through everything the perpetrator's story is being told and when eventually caught there have been a number of assumptions made without real evidence or motive. Alone, Geraldine clutched the edge of the bare table and howled. He put down his pencil and took a quick gulp of his tea.
He haunted me in the way many of my characters haunt me, because they fascinate me. I shouldn't have trusted the Amazon reviews - so many of them are authors' friends and in this case, I really don't see how people could praise up this writing at all. He obviously hadn't seen her details, as he didn't know she was a detective inspector. I wrote one scene from the point of view of a child because that was the character the narrative focused in that scene. Journey to Death is the first title in her Lucy Hall series published by Thomas and Mercer. So far wildlife and a small child had obliterated any evidence.
We might not know his name, or his background, but we know that he's on a mission to rid the world of young women who are giving him dirty thoughts. A young woman is found murdered in the local park. It's frustrating and I've been carrying it around in my purse for long enough an I hate to abandon this because there's nothing patently wrong with it. I was astounded and excited. They played on the big big slide.
Maybe the author was padding it out? She tried to picture him with a bald head or long straggly hair, instead of a grubby grey cap pulled low on his forehead. But when he sees girls with long blonde hair he thinks dirty thoughts so he has to kill them to keep himself clean. This story flows from start to finish. A gripping psychological thriller introducing Geraldine Steel, a woman whose past is threatening to collide with her future. I got as far as page 182 which is 51% so did give it a chance. Ask them to speak to the mother, interview Angela's brother, and find out if there was a father around. A brief memory flickered into her mind, a snatch of conversation overheard at the station; Peterson was having problems with his girlfriend.
As they approached the central bank of overgrown trees and shrubs on their left, the two boys raced past Gerta into the children's area. I am in the park with my little girl Sophie, James and Otto also. Sophie wanted to push him off the slide, only Gerta was on the bench watching them. Steel herself is a likeable central character, and the fact that women are in danger adds piquancy to the plot and heightens the drama. She and Jamie took turns nicely on the big slide. In there she used a stick to stir up some leaves and uncovered the body of a woman. She threw a critical look at her reflection.
A harassed officer with a clipboard approached her as she hovered in the doorway. He sang softly, because you never knew who was listening. Whatever there is, find it. I liked the author's use of very short sentences and her ability of bringing together characters who at the beginning seem to have no connection with each other. We know who the baddie is and he is a wackjob and even he isn't interesting enough to follow. Leigh is married with two daughters.
