Über das eBook
Experience the streets of York like never before in this gripping twelfth instalment of the acclaimed Detective Geraldine Steel series, a captivating journey that has enthralled millions of readers worldwide.
There was so much blood. The dead man's clothes were saturated, his hands sticky. Blood lodged under his fingernails and fixed in the creases of his skin. By contrast, the gloves absorbed nothing, allowing the blood to slide around easily with satisfying oily smoothness.
As a killer terrorizes the city, striking with brazen confidence, the police find themselves racing against time to stop the bloodshed. With clear DNA evidence at their fingertips, it should be a straightforward investigation, but the powers that be dismiss the deaths as mere muggings gone wrong, with a gang of youths becoming the prime suspects.
Detective Sergeant Geraldine Steel's intuition tells her there's something more sinister at play. While her colleagues dismiss her theories, Geraldine is determined to uncover the truth.
As the body count rises, each falling victim to seemingly indiscriminate attacks, the net tightens around the muggers, leading to a gripping showdown with devastating consequences. But even as justice is seemingly served, the true killer still lurks in the shadows, evading capture.
With time not on her side, Geraldine Steel embarks on a relentless pursuit of justice, tracking down a crucial witness who may hold the key to solving the case. However, danger lurks around every corner, and Geraldine soon realizes that her own life is in peril.
Has the hunter become the hunted?
For fans of gripping crime fiction authors like Angela Marsons, Mel Sherratt, and LJ Ross, this heart-stopping thriller is a must-read.
Leigh Russell delivers a masterful tale of suspense and intrigue that will keep you guessing until the final page.
All the Geraldine Steel books can be read as stand-alone novels.
