SynopsisTwo brutal murders. No witnesses. The battered bodies of two young girls are discovered in North London, one shortly after the other. Desperate to avoid hysteria in the community, the police struggle to make a quick arrest before the deranged killer can strike again. Not having any luck, Detective Geraldine Steel, recently transferred to London, is called in to make sense of the grisly murders and the killer's unusual signature: he extracts two teeth from each of his victims. With the death toll mounting, Geraldine is running out of time as she hunts for the elusive killer the papers have dubbed "The Dentist."
My Review: First off I am a mystery book enthusiast! I love mystery novels so when I got the chance to review Death Bed I was over the moon excited! I will have to say I did not realize this book was part of a series which threw me off a little. I can't say that it had any impact on reading the story other than some back history to the main character. Detective Geraldine Steel is an awesome character and I totally felt like her shadow in the book. The scenes at times gruesome yet very detailed leaving nothing out and yet leaving out just enough for the reader to capture the scene and invision it. I was completely involved in Death Bed and wanted more. I felt the frustration and the need to catch "The Dentist". He was not right in the head the man needs to be caught and put away for a really long time. I just thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I will definitely be reading more by Leigh Russell. I can't wait to see where we find Detective Steel next.
