This is the second in the series about forensic specialist, Reilly Steel, and it is every bit as good as the first. There are some VERY gruesome deaths in this one and some descriptions (especially the one with the maggots) should not be read at meal times. My mother always said you should not read while you are eating and now I know why. The story is good and it races to a very exciting climax. The characters are interesting and realistic and the authors produce some good entertaining dialogue ...more

Reilly Steel's mantra, "Read the clues. Decode the science. Reveal the murderer" is easier said than done. Reilly, her GFU (Dublin's version of CSI) team, and detectives Christ Delaney and Pete Kennedy (introduced in book one) are mired in several grotesque murders with no clues and very limited scientific evidence. The police hierarchy and the press are clamoring for answers. Enter flamboyant Rueben Knight, a profiler imported from London, who sees that the crime scenes are similar to scenes fr ...more

Eventhough pretty straightforward crime solving, it is still good, especially how the persons involved were being killed

A good follow up to 'Taboo', with a creepy, smart killer, a seemingly unrelated series of shocking and brutal deaths, and some cool forensic stuff. Reilly Steel is an interesting character who is smart and attractive but not perfect, and she refreshingly lacks the bitchy attitude a lot of writers seem to attribute to women working in or with the police - she's tough but she doesn't feel the need to 'prove' herself or bust the balls of the men around her (instead she deals with the difficult ones ...more

Reilly Steel, Quantico-trained forensic investigator working for the Garda Forensic Unit in Dublin, is very experienced at what she does and thinks she’s seen it all. But even she raises a few eye-brows when she finds herself face to face with the remains of a journalist, found in his own sceptic tank where he has apparently been left to drown “in his own shit”.
The crime-scene offers little or no clues for the investigation and a look at the journalist’s personal and professional life by Detect

Casey Hill, you are fantastic!

This may sound inappropriate but I LOVED how gruesome—artistic even—the murders in the 2nd installment of the Reilly Steel series is. In fact, I enjoyed this book more than the first. This series just keep getting better! The plot and theme that the Punisher (the villain or the vigilante depending on your moral standing) chose was extremely interesting! It was definitely artful, to design the murders around Dante’s INFERNO. Hill’s description as usual was amazing; y

Reilly Steel is back in the second book in the series, but the first one that I have read. She is called to a crime scene where a man is found dead in the septic tank in his back garden, starts off the way it continues with the whole book.

My first reading from this married couple Casey Hill.

It's like reading 2-3 episodes of CSI, with some gruesome reading, with the added relationships.

This book keeps at a fast pace, as you get to know the characters alongside Reilly Steel, heart pounding stuff

This series keeps getting better!
In this book the killer is using Dante's Inferno as his playbook for his form of justice!
This investigation cuts close to home for one of the detectives and is faced with a moral dilemma, his job is to stop the killer, his feelings are a different story.
I can't wait to read the next book ans see where Casey Hill takes these complicated and enjoyable characters!

Strange that my Kindle copy is titled Inferno - A CSI Reilly Steel Thriller not Torn.

This would be a great read except for all the typos and extraneous symbols in the Kindle Edition. The story is tight and kept my interest all the way. The Hills just needs to hire a good proofreader and they will be set to go. I look forward to the next installment of the CSI Reilly Steel adventures.

This is one of the most absorbing novels I've ever read in my reading journey!

If you're a crime/detective novels fan, then this is a must-read for you!

Though I couldn't get the first book in the Reilly Steel series, I didn't find problems understanding the whole story except for Reilly Steel's past, which is still vague to me.

The idea of this novel is very gripping and incredible! The events and the plot twists are unpredictable and shocking, and the characters are awesome as well.

I haven't read part 1 in the series so at the start there are alot of characters and information to take in if you're unfamiliar with them. Luckily the writing is fast paced and you get to know Reilly Steel and her team of investigators soon enough.

The story is mostly told from two perspectives; one is Reilly Steel and the other is from the detectives Pete Kennedy and Chris Delaney. Multiple perspectives will follow and they all entwine wonderfully within the story to unravel the mystery and kep

Author Withholds Whodunnit Info

Average police procedural featuring Riley Steel, an FBI-trained forensics investigator, who now works in Ireland. The Dante’s Inferno concept as the key to a serial killing is very good, as is the murderer’s artful execution of the actual killings.
What I didn’t like was the author withholding information about characters, so I couldn’t begin to accurately guess the murderer’s identity. I expect red herrings in mysteries, but deliberate obfuscation annoys, especia

A Bloody Killer in Ireland

This was a book with just one storyline about an odd serial killer. It took a long time for the police to connect the killer to the variety of gruesome killings. There were vivid descriptions of the mutilated bodies. They finally get some help from an expert, who quickly parallels the horrible deaths to punishments in the different rings of hell in Dante's Inferno. I also read the first book in the series and they were similar - built about an American, Rielly Steele, w

I love these books. It may not be the best writing and - from someone who actually works in a lab - some of the descriptions of scientific processes make me cringe, but it's so addictive.

What I love about this series is it's not obvious from the very start who did it and the focus on the police as well as scientific side of the process makes for such an interesting read. On top of that there is no shying away from rather gory and visceral descriptions.

Based on the chapter sampler at the end for

I liked this book. I seem to remember the first one being more enjoyable. I found that the sentences had to many commas, making them hard to understand and I know because I do this myself when I write. I did not see the perpetrator as the one who had committed the crimes until it was made abundantly clear, which is to be recognised as usually you can hazard a guess as to who did it. Love the character of Reilly. I will continue to read the series and hope the next one will be just that little bi ...more
Plum-crazy
Well, with a journalist drowned in a septic tank (ugh) & a crucifixion on the cards I thought this would be right up my street, the sort of gory & gripping tale I love. But while all the components were there & the characters were decent enough I found it an easy read rather than one I could get my teeth into.

A very good book, Reilly Steel is the main character and she is fantastic, with a good bunch of supporting ones. A psychopath serial killer who only leaves what he wants them to find. A major challenge for Reilly Steel and her group and a Profiler from Scotland Yard that is amazing. A book that you should read. Will get the next one in the series.

Book two....amazing! I loved this storyline and "The Punisher" serial killer vigilante. Reminded me of Dexter. The main characters in this series are all likable and worthy of a series.

This is a wannabe American thriller based in Ireland. There was a gruesome murder at the start but then the story became quite unbelievable. I don’t know if I will follow on with this series.

Something was lurking there, hiding in a quiet corner of her mind, waiting to ambush her as soon as she started to drift off.” 1 likes
