Book Finished…The Ladykiller by Martina Cole

George isn’t happy in his marriage or his life in general infact the only thing that keeps him happy is his secret magazines in the shed, but soon these aren’t enough for him. He starts to rape and kill young women.
Kate is the detective trying to solve the murders and she finds herself involved with one of the victim’s fathers who is a known (but unproved) villain.
This is the second book I have read by Martina Cole – the first one being The Know – and it was excellent. It was the first tree book that I have read in months and I loved it.

I enjoy books that are written from all different angles and this certainly was. There was a wealth of characters all very well described and links were very well explained.

This is the sort of dark, gritty fiction that I favour and although some scenes were quite hard to swallow , an example being George and his abusive mother it was a great flowing read.

It is obvious to see why Martina Cole is so well loved, thrillers are definitely her area of expertise, I did read recently that she has only written 17 books which, surprised me. This has encouraged me to read more of her books. Great Read:

5/5
