DCI Miller is faced with a head-ache and a half in the latest Manchester based adventure GONE TOO FAR.
Kathy Hopkirk, the nation’s most detested “celebrity” has disappeared.
Famed for her outrageous remarks and nasty observations about ordinary people in the street and stars from the showbiz world, Kathy has always taken great delight in grabbing the headlines and causing as much controversy as possible. But now she is in the news for a different reason. She is missing.
While visiting Manchester for work, she was staying at The Midland. The iconic, world famous hotel was the last place Kathy was seen, CCTV recorded her leaving on foot. Her destination was unknown. Three days later, her disappearance was reported to police by her manager. The sensational news was met with great interest by the British public, though very little surprise or sympathy. Kathy Hopkirk had been pushing it for years. It looks like this time, she may just have gone too far.
DCI Miller and his team are overwhelmed by the amount of vitriol and hatred which surrounds the missing woman. Where do they possibly start with this one? Kathy has had thousands of death threats on Twitter alone.
DCI Miller is back with another roller-coaster case.
Gone Too Far is the fourth DCI Miller story from popular British indie author Steven Suttie.
Gone Too Far is the fourth book in the DCI Miller series. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the other books in the series as it works very well as a stand alone.
It’s hard not to automatically think of a certain celebrity with the same initials when we meet Kathy Hopkirk. It certainly makes for an interesting story line to have one centred around her. When she goes missing, I think most people are glad! I did actually grow to admire her in the story.
It’s difficult to say too much about the storyline as not much is given away in the book description. Sadly the crime is something that has been in the limelight over the last several years. It was good to see someone so hated though wanting to make a stand.
DCI Miller and the team really have their work cut out. For one an adult going missing isn’t a major crime but because of who they are they have the added pressure of the press being on their case watching their every move.
Gone Too Far was an entertaining read tinged with the sadness of a crime that is very much true to life. It had me hooked from the start and I was very reluctant to put it down. If you haven’t read any of this author’s books yet then I highly recommend them.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
