I Recommend This Book


I would like to thank Oldcastle Books and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read ‘Class Murder’, the tenth in the series of Geraldine Steel novels written by Leigh Russell, in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
Geraldine Steel is working for the Major Investigation Team in York with her former sergeant Ian Peterson although their roles are reversed as Geraldine has been demoted to sergeant due to breaking the law assisting her twin sister and Ian is now an inspector.  
Geraldine and Ian are seeking the man who went into a flat and viciously murdered Stephanie Crawford, followed soon after by Peter and then Beth.  The only thing the victims have in common is that they all attended the same school and were in the same class.  With the number of bodies increasing, can the murderer be found before he kills anyone else?
After reading book number 9 I’d hoped for another and Leigh Russell answered my prayers with ‘Class Murder’ which digs a little bit deeper into the friendship between Geraldine and Ian.  
Once again Leigh Russell has produced an exciting action-packed thriller which kept me reading long after the lights were out and everyone was asleep.  The characters were convincing and the storyline gripping, ending with a cliffhanging conclusion.  I can wholeheartedly recommend ‘Class Murder’ to anyone who enjoys compelling detective novels.
