Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Donoghue melds a stunning plot with rich characterizations and imaginative prose…to create an affecting story that builds to a heart-pounding and heart-wrenching conclusion."—Richmond Times-Dispatch

"An excellent procedural debut with depth of characterization and plenty of suspense."—Kirkus

"Excellent…Each carefully planned chapter adds to the excitement with its attention to detail. Jane and Mike aren’t always in sync, which adds another dimension to the story, and Mike’s relationship with his autistic brother adds an interesting aspect to his personality. The climax is shocking and unexpected."—RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

"A gutsy, gruesome, and compelling thriller."—Booklist

"Donoghue’s ability to generate some scary atmospherics and sympathy for her characters suggests she has what it takes to build a solid detective series."—Publishers Weekly

"An atmospheric, authentic police story…a cracker of a book."—Elizabeth Haynes, international bestselling author of Into the Darkest Corner

"Tension so delicious you'll feel your scalp tingle as you read far, far into the night. A compelling debut that blends the dark fog of a London killing spree with characters and descriptions that make you feel like you're reading a newspaper rather than a novel. Bravo!"—Shane Gericke, national bestselling author of Torn Apart

"A scintillating debut. It's clever and compelling, and anchored by a host of vividly drawn characters. But be warned: the end of the novel delivers a series of shocks that will surprise and startle even the most dedicated thriller reader. You won't be able to put this one down."—David Bell, author of Cemetery Girl

"An assured and shocking debut from a talent to watch."—David Hewson, author of The Killing

Kurzbeschreibung

A chilling and compelling debut crime thriller set in South East London. For all those who enjoy Peter James, Mark Billingham and Peter Robinson.

Three women have been found brutally murdered in south London, the victims only feet away from help during each sadistic attack. And the killer is getting braver . . .

Sarah Grainger is rapidly becoming too afraid to leave her house. Once an outgoing photographer, she knows that someone is watching her. A cryptic note brings everything into terrifying focus, but it's the chilling phone calls that take the case to another level.

DI Mike Lockyer heads up the regional murder squad. With three bodies on his watch, and a killer growing in confidence, he frantically tries to find the link between these seemingly isolated incidents. What he discovers will not only test him professionally but will throw his personal life into turmoil too.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Einfallslos 14. Juli 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Dutzendware, kein bisschen spannend. Wer schon ein paar Krimis gelesen hat, weiß nach ca 20 Prozent, wer der Mörder ist. Der Detective Inspector und seine Truppe müssen sich maximal dumm anstellen, sonst wäre der Krimi nach 40 Seiten oder so zu Ende. Natürlich muss die junge Frau, mit der er was laufen hat, ebenfalls dran glauben. Ach ja, und seine Tochter wird auch in die Handlung eingefädelt, gähn. Und das mit dem autistischen Bruder des Ermittlers, woher kennt man das nur? Richtig, aus dem Film "Rain Man". Eins zu eins übernommen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I was left looking over my shoulder... 13. März 2014
Von Liz Wilkins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Many thanks to the author and publisher for the compelling review copy.

Three women have been found brutally murdered in south London, the victims only feet away from help during each sadistic attack. And the killer is getting braver . . .

So, yet another brilliant debut novel due to hit the shelves next year "Never Look Back" introduces us to DI Mike Lockyer and his team as they investigate a series of murders...and a stalker.

Oh how I love when I get right in at the start of a new series, especially a headstart and especially when they are as good as this one. It was genuinely creepy - I have spent the last few days whilst reading it surreptitiously looking over my shoulder, checking out parked cars in case someone is in them and obsessively drawing the curtains in my house as soon as the sky starts to darken...Just in case you understand.

DI Lockyer is fantastic, I completely fell in love with him. Sidekick Jane shows intelligence and depth and offsets him perfectly...together they delve into a mind of darkness and try and figure out how to stop the slaughter- but both have personal lives that can get in the way.

Meanwhile we also follow Sarah, who is becoming increasingly withdrawn from life having received a number of sinister phone calls, and always having a sense of being watched - the police seemingly able to do nothing, she hides away, finding it harder and harder to leave her sanctuary. Could her world and that of the murder victims be about to collide?

Cleverly written, broken down into days, we watch the investigation, Sarah's increasing paranoia and DI Lockyer's struggle to separate his emotions from the practical necessities of chasing a killer...and all the while the disturbing atmosphere builds.

Ms Donoghue writes with a clear eye to the ironic, in a smooth and addictive style, all the while adding substance and clarity to her characters as we get to know them. The final resolution is perhaps one of the best ones I have read lately and with a teaser of what is to come at the end of my beautiful review copy, my chronic impatience has just kicked in once more.

Happy Reading Folks!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very intriguing story 3. August 2014
Von Marina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Sarah has no peace even in her own home. Strange phone calls, shadows in the dark, someone is following her. She has chosen her home with so much love, now her neighborhood is her nightmare. Her home has become her prison. There is no place where she is safe.

Another young woman is scared, there is shadow following her. Debbie thinks it's only her overactive imagination, but soon her worst nightmare comes true.

Three young women are dead. They are all found brutally murdered, no connection between them. DI Mike Lockyer works on the case. Fighting with his own demons, he has to find the murderer. With enough problems in his personal life, he has to follow the leads to find the murderer who kills young women. When the investigation involves members of his own family, the chasing of the cat and mouse begins.

This book I won on Crime Fiction Lover giveaway. It's a debut work of a young author, Clare Donoghue. I must say it is well done. I like the setting, the mystery part is intriguing, mixing one case with another that have nothing in common. The clues are left one by one, leaving enough space to guess the ending. There are turn-overs on almost every page and nothing prepares you for the ending. The violent scenes are chilly, but not too creepy. The main character is another thing. Mike Lockyer is classical anti-hero, never talks about his personal life, no one knows that he has a brother with special needs. He cares for his brother well, which makes him more human. But he never talks about him, even his daughter doesn't know he exists. But one thing is certain, DI Lockyer does his job well, even too well. His job is his life.

The author is compared with several well-established British authors, but I haven't read any of them. I'll change that very soon. All I know, that I read great book, very intriguing story and I'll be looking for other book from this young author in future. If this is a debut book, I'm pretty sure that the others would be even better.

4.0 von 5 Sternen "She had nothing left to hold on to but her fear." 20. Juni 2014
Von E. Bukowsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In Clare Donoghue's "Never Look Back," a psychopath has been assaulting and murdering young women. Detective Inspector Mike Lockyer of Lewisham's Murder Squad in London, and his "right hand," Detective Sergeant Jane Bennett, are investigating. Although Mike is smart and competent, he is too tense and distracted to concentrate fully on his job. DI Lockyer is guilt-ridden about spending too little time with his older brother, Bobby, who lives in a residential home; Mike still pines for his estranged wife, Clare; and he chides himself for spending too little quality time with his daughter, eighteen-year-old Megan. Mike is shaken up when he learns that the latest victim of a sadistic serial killer bears a strong resemblance to Megan.

The author breaks little new ground in a well-worn genre. Mike is not a fan of the brass, can be rebellious at times, and behaves self-destructively. On the other hand, he is intuitive, tenacious, and a good leader. Jane, who has personal issues of her own, tries to keep her boss on an even keel when she senses that he is reaching the end of his tether. The most sympathetic character is Sarah Grainger, a freelance photographer who is being harassed by an unidentified stalker. She has lost a great deal of weight, neglects her hygiene, and seeks support from her kindhearted girlfriend, Toni. However, even when Sandra repeatedly asks the police for help, they do little to allay her fears.

Donoghue keeps the action moving at a fast clip, skillfully builds suspense, and adroitly foreshadows the horrors to come. However, this novel is too similar to others of its kind, except for the introduction of a pair of crazies, both of whom strike terror into the hearts of helpless females. Mike is your typical tormented and flawed hero, who may be in for even more heartbreak. We assume that he will return in another installment to lick his wounds and try to quell the discontent that lies at the core of his being.
