A killer is on the loose. It's up to DI Kate Burrows to stop him.
But Kate has a problem. The Grantley Ripper has attacked the daughter of one of London's most infamous gangsters, Patrick Kelly, and now Kate's investigation, along with her heart, are dangerously entwined with him.
As the worlds of crime and law collide, will Kate take down the Ladykiller, or will he be her undoing?
Oh my dayz.... It's difficult to get my head around the fact that I first read this book over 20 years ago. It's actually just over 23 years, as I was reading this around the time I went on my first date with my now Hubby. I remember my mum laughing when I was going out, saying "be careful he drives the same car as George Markham" you'll understand the reference more if you have or when you do read the book.
Anyway back to the book.
I have just done a re read of this book, and you know what, it is just as good now as it was way back then. It's not a book that has dated with time, you don't feel that its an old book if that makes sense. I have read this at least 4 times over the years, but with the amount of books I get through it's easy to forget a lot of what happened. I knew a lot of things that happened but couldn't remember how the story joined, how it all come together. And it was just as enjoyable this time around.
This book is certainly one of my all time favorited reads ever, and definitely my all time favourite of Martina Cole books. I do feel for me personally the older books of Martina's are certainly the best.
George Markham, what a character.
DI Kate Burrows is searching for a killer, a killer that has been named as The Grantley Ripper.
When The Grantley Ripper attacks The Daugher of one of London's well known Faces, Patrick Kelly, He's out for blood. And investigating office Di Kate Burrows is soon caught up with him, mixing her work life and her private life could be the end of Kate.
This is a gripping unputdownable read. And well worth reading this series in order.
