Lynda La Plante's 'Prime Suspect' drama series was my introduction to British Police procedural, hooked me as a fan of it and too seek out the genre in books. Fast forward 20+ years from that epic show, with the evolution of ebooks, readers have a gold mine of gems in this genre, especially here across the pond thanks to amazon.com and it's ...more
When a body is found by the river in a university campus, DCI Walker takes the murder case in an effort to redeem herself. She’ll be working alongside her partner, DS Matt Price.
They both question witnesses and unravel clues to help solve the case.
I’m new to British procedurals and found I really liked the way that the story moved forward. The crime was methodically broken down and made you feel like you were right in the planning room along with the team.
The characters were imperfect and real, with family problems, personal challenges and room to grow.
Dr. Georgina ...more
It had no DRM, so I had no trouble converting the Kindle ebook to EPub for my other Reader (a larger Tolino Epos).
Do not like the female detective (one of two female MC's), old fashioned and even according to her superior still living in the 70ies... Already I have to force myself to read this, looks like a 2star book and a possible DNF, but I want to be sure bevore abandoning it.

DEADLY GAMES is the first crime fiction/police procedural book in a new series featuring DCI Whitney and Forensic Psychologist, Dr. Georgina (George) Cavendish by author Sally Rigby.
Wow and what an awesome read. This is first time of reading anything by this author and it won’t be the last. Great plot, well written, excellent characters and a good twist at the end. Her psychological thrillers has me hooked from the start of the book until the end.
The characters and their relationships felt a little stilted, especially Walker’s somewhat clichéd view of her fast-track boss. The relationship between Walker and Cavendish also seemed a little black and white. One minute DCI Walker wants ...more
