His one soft spot is his daughter, and when she falls victim to the Grantley Ripper, Kelly wants revenge. The DI in charge of the case is Kate Burrows. She feels for Kelly but her growing involvement with a known villain is putting her career at risk... As the forces of law and order and London's underworld converge in a huge manhunt, Kate fears she'll lose everything she's ever cared about... to the ladykiller.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, there is more sub plots than plot, and the side stories swamp the main story

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have liked to explore the murderer a bit more, and I was definitely uninterested in the detectives love life

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The opening scene was quite dark

Could you see The Ladykiller being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Wouldn't be interested in any film or programme myself

Any additional comments?

We have a psychopathetic murderer on the loose, terrorising a small town, yet the book is all about the detectives relationship with a East End gangster and their sexual exploits
