About this deal

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.

I kept hoping we’d stop getting the tiny details, but it didn’t get better – there wasn’t enough focus on the crime, boring me with the small details. I told my boyfriend about pretty much every event that happened as i felt i needed to discuss it with someone, as if it was happening in real life and i was reading it in the newspapers. An unputdownable read that I have just spent the last two hours finishing, and that's the thing about Martina's books. Yes, it was scary being in the mind of a freaking serial killer (pun intended) but then again it was fascinating: again, charity begins at home and when later on in life you don't get to unpack your childhood baggage the result might be a serial killer. I could go on for a long time about all that is bad about this book but I won’t, I’m just glad it’s over.There’s very little emphasis on the investigation to start with and I don’t know why Kate Burrows is such a good DI because she hasn’t done much in relation to the crimes. p>Read about how we’ll protect and use your data in our Privacy Notice.

Rosemary West was born in Barnstaple and,after her parents split up,spent time with her father,who repeatedly sexually abused her.

This is the only word reverberating through my mind as I think back to what I've just read: All 727 pages of it. The story focuses on the Grantley Ripper, DI Kate Burrows and Patrick Kelly who is brought into the story when the Ripper murders his daughter Mandy. Some parts are so annoyingly repetitive, which only make the book way too thick than it should be, but do not help to improve the plot at all.

Ne sono rimasta sconcertata, le scene che vengono descritte sono realiste, sono fredde, spietate, così come l’assassino. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. I found this book on a shelf at my friends a couple of years back, having never read Martina Cole's novels before I wasn't sure what to expect. Kate Burrows is supposed to be this great detective (Patrick Kelly keeps re-iterating this), but she's next to useless.

He vows revenge and so a manhunt between police and mobsters begins, though the Ripper always seems one step ahead as his victims mount up . With very dominating brilliantly-written characters and an exciting riveting plot that will have hearts racing at every turn; this book is a must read for EVERYONE that loves a great crime novel.Winfrey interviews the "heroine" (tongue in cheek, as she's a heroin addict) who killed George Markham in self-defence. So many twists and turns as DCI Kate Burrows tries to discover the identity of the perverted serial known as "The Grantley Ripper" and bring him to justice, We also have Patrick Kelly, who's daughter is murdered by the Grantley Ripper, trying to do just the same but his justice will be very different to that of DCI Burrows.

Some of the things he did were horrific and the dead baby was just awful and probably not necessary. If a refund or reimbursement is payable to you, we will transfer the money using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.She feels for Kelly but her growing involvement with a known villain is putting her career at risk . The detective's unlikely relationship with a stereotypical gangster is given equal weight to the main plot - how she managed to reach Chief Inspector is the mystery to me!
