Sounds very good. I can understand why you want to have one of her books at hand unread. I've only read Sacrifice so far and that's one where you have to really stretch to accept the solution but atmosphere and pace were great.
I'll put this on the wish list.

I've got the Ripper one coming up on my TBR - saving it for when I need a scary read!

I liked Sacrifice, but the ending was definitely over the top. I think these last detective stories are slightly more mainstream but they certainly have gothic elements. I like that she is bringing back former characters, too. I think her books are perfect for crisp fall days--maybe for Carl's RIP challenge in October.

Now You See Me with the Ripper murders is definitely an intense read. I'm not sure of the two which I liked better--both were very entertaining!

With a number of characters common to the different novels I'm surprised Fantastic Fiction doesn't show them as a series. I had never realised here was any interlinkong. Perhaps I'll start at the beginning.

I liked the sound of this the first time you mentioned it and now I am sure I am going to read it. Wonderful review, Danielle!

Danielle

I'd say that this and the last are definitely the start of a series--as both DI Joesbury and DC Flint are recurring characters. I think Blood Harvest might have been meant to be a standalone but was surprised to see Evi and then Harry appear in the novel as well. I wonder what she has in mind for her next book?

Danielle

Even though her stories can be sort of far out, I do really enjoy reading them. I read this at the gym and it made the time fly by! :)

You know I'm not really a mystery reader but you have made this one sound really interesting.

Danielle

My mystery reading has been weird this year, and here the time is flying by and the year half over. I did enjoy this one very much--a quick and easy (and very creepy) read!
