A Hitchcock-style casual encounter and confessions between two old school friends. An emotional and compelling read.
Caroline's husband is killed, but she can't turn to the police without implicating herself in his murder. When one of her 10-year-old twins is kidnapped, the desperate mother is forced to resort to drastic measures to get him back.
As time runs out, Geraldine realises she has a secret that might just help solve the case, but the truth could destroy her career. Faced with the unenviable decision of protecting herself or the widow she barely knows, Geraldine must grapple with her conscience and do the right thing before the death count mounts any further.
'[Leigh Russell's] previous six novels featuring DI Geraldine Steel marked her out as a rare talent, and this seventh underlines it.'Daily Mail
'KILLER PLAN is the seventh book in the Geraldine Steel series but it also works perfectly as a stand-alone book, with previous events and characters deftly explained without taking attention from the current investigation. Geraldine Steel is skilfully portrayed as a tough, ambitious and dedicated professional, who cares about the people she deals with, and is determined to keep her vulnerabilities well concealed. KILLER PLAN is a fast-paced Police Procedural and a compelling read.'Mystery People
'The story and writing is back with a vengeance.'Best Crime Books & More
