George Markham has a nasty little hobby, one that erupts into an orgy of viscous sexual depravity. Patrick Kelly is a hard man. 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.

Loved this book

Would you listen to The Ladykiller again? Why?

Yes. I really liked this book. The story kept me wanting to know just what was going to happen next.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I didn't really have a favourite, I enjoyed it all.

What does Annie Aldington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Yes definitely. Annie is a great story teller & brings it to life.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It didn't make me cry, it did however have me looking behind me every five minutes whilst walking my dog haha..... no, really!!

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

Creepy Killer!

Wow! Interesting read. Enjoyable long listen that took me down surprising roads, some I am still travelling down in contemplation. Not much about the investegation, instead you are "in the head" of the criminal and detective and what drives of them.
