Review: ‘Class Murder’ by Leigh Russell.
When two people are murdered, their only connection lies buried in the past. As police search for the elusive killer, another body is discovered. Geraldine Steel struggles to solve the baffling case while trying to settle in following her enforced relocation to York.
‘Class Murder‘ pits a demented serial killer with a demoted detective struggling with a number of personal problems.
Leigh Russell manages to create a number of interesting characters, any of whom could be the person responsible for the killings. I found the interweaving of Geraldine’s story with that of the perpetrator and the victims very effective for allowing the narrative to unfold in a natural way.
Considering the number of crime novels out there, I found the premise behind ‘Class Murder‘ highly original.
This is the tenth book in the Geraldine Steel series but ‘Class Murder‘ is a great read for any fans of crime fiction – regardless of whether they’ve read previous books in the series or not.
