My Thoughts:

This is the fifth book in the CSI Eddie Collins series and can easily be read as a standalone.

Eddie is someone who if you came across in the real world, not many people would like him. He is crass and doesn’t care who he upsets. His mouth definitely acts before his brain engages, yet you can’t help but do like him. He really has a love hate relationship with his job, he loves what he does but he hates the authority and is for ever a thorn in the side for the people who are higher up.

I have to admit I really felt for Eddie and his team in this book. A threat comes in the form of a new comer and the thread to do with that particular storyline is pretty explosive to say the least. There were so many what the???? moments. Loved it!

The actual case that the team are working on is far from being straight forward. The murders are pretty brutal and to a certain point, you do question if some of the victims did indeed deserve death.

Jessica’s character is a very complicated one. She has been through a lot and I really felt for her having been away from her son for twelve years and desperate to have him back in her life. Sadly her life isn’t about to get any better now she is back on the outside and it’s like she is constantly losing a fighting battle with all aspects of her life.

The Death of Jessica Ripley is the authors best book yet. He really has excelled himself with this one. It is dark and had me gripped from the very first page to the last. The twists and turns are relentless and I could feel the excitement and shock building up inside of me as to what else the author had in store for me with each passing chapter. Brilliant!

The Death of Jessica Ripley is available to purchase from Amazon.
