  • When a successful businessman is brutally murdered, the police suspect his glamorous wife and her young lover. Then the victim's business partner suffers the same gruesome fate and, when yet another body is discovered seemingly unrelated to the first two, the police are baffled. The only clue is DNA that leads them to two women: one dead, the other in prison. With a steady stream of bodies arriving at the morgue, can D.I. Geraldine Steel find the killer before another deadly attack?

    Review:

    'All the things a mystery should be, intriguing, enthralling, tense and utterly absorbing.' - Best Crime Books

    'Stop Dead is taut and compelling, stylishly written with a deeply human voice.' - Peter James

    'Leigh Russell is a brilliant talent in the thriller field.' - Jeffery Deaver

    'As in her previous work, Russell delivers highly efficient prose, achieving the momentum of such earlier books as Cut Short.' - Crime Time

    A well written, a well-researched, and a well-constructed whodunit...A character with a lot more to tell, and one we will be happy to journey with for many books to come. Highly recommended. - -- Mystery People
