Three women are dead and DI Lorraine Hunt is searching for a serial killer. In Houghton-le-Spring it's Feast Week, A

Sheila Quigley is still a relatively new author to me and I only recently finished her first book in the series featuring Detective Inspector Lorraine Hunt. In the first book we meet Lorraine as well as some of her colleagues she works with such as Carter, Luke and Sara. We also see featured some of the Lumsdon family who were in the first book.

The one thing I liked about reading book two is that I already have a feel for the area and the characters and how they interact with each other. I know

In the second Seahills novel we see DI Lorraine Hunt and her team pushed to the limit with a serial killer on the loose. Due to the imminent Houghton feast resources are already at breaking point. Lorraine soon finds there is another serious crime to deal with coupled with some worrying family news. Could this all be too much for Lorraine?

In this novel Quigley further develops not only her Seahills setting but also the characters. We see a return of some of the Lumsden's and their upbeat friend
I enjoyed reading this, but thought Run For Home (previous book in the series) was a much better story. The characters are complex and well described, and I like how Sheila Quigley writes in the local dialect. This just wasn't quite as good as I hoped it would be.
just an average murder with a female detective in a sexually charged relationship with an underling
was fine - and what i needed after slogging through the awful Catcher
easy to read, vaguely gripping, nothing earth shattering
Cora Linn
In her second book, Quigley took the sinister themes in her writing to a new level. I think it may have been my own feelings at the time encroaching on my judgement of the book, but I didn't enjoy it as much.
2nd book in the Lorraine Hunt Series, enjoyed this as much as the 1st one

I know I read it and enjoyed it but forgot to rate it at the time so....
Margaret Barron
An easy read that keeps moving but an average murder mystery

It was ok, not the best but by no means the worst
