    So this would be book 5 of the series I have actually read books 2, 3 and 4 but have not reviewed them yet damn moving along, I thought this was possibly my least favourite of the series even though it was pretty much a classic Mark Roberts gritty noir thriller and pretty contemporary as it deals with internet dating which I reckon could be a risky proposition these days.

  2. Jo says:

    Someone is kidnapping young women, skinning their faces and scalping them then leaving them in bodies of water DCI Eve Clay and her team have to go undercover to stalk a killer who is finding victims through internet dating The latest in the series is another exciting instalment from Mark Roberts with non stop action and plenty of twists.

    A long book I was nearly put off with a few reviews but glad I decided to go ahead with this book Was a typical police detective book but still a good read.

    Jus5 started reading this, then log into good reads to find it Is book number 5 Iv read no others, my pet peeve within authors is you write so many thousands of words for the book but can t write 2 words at the start of a book, book 1 book 2 not happy.

    First book I read from Mark Roberts and I am already a fan Very easy to read and writing style keeps you on your toes Brilliant page turner, not too graphic and definitely not scary at least in my eyes anyways which would definitely suggest it as a good recommendation for beginners in the genre too Many twists, even though towards the mid end you kinda know who and what especially if you re as nuts as I am and keep notes , but not WHY and HOW Now THIS is what gave this book the 5th star i First book I read from Mark Roberts and I am already a fan Very easy to read and writing style keeps you on your toes Brilliant page turner, not too graphic and definitely not scary at least in my eyes anyways which would definitely suggest it as a good recommendation for beginners in the genre too Many twists, even though towards the mid end you kinda know who and what especially if you re as nuts as I am and keep notes , but not WHY and HOW Now THIS is what gave this book the 5th star in my case The book is NOT the best I ve ever read, but the author kept me interested and kept throwing flavours in the mix I definitely recommend it and will be buying the previous from the series, because silly enough I picked this one up at the shop while not having access to GoodReads and unaware it s basically the last book so far D

    If I could, I would give six stars It is my first book from Mark Roberts and I loved it I read 500 pages in one go, in one day I don t remember when last time it has happened to me The story about internet dating sites, about hideous crimes, about preying on human weaknesses, about the dark side of our soul I love how the book is written The timeline is four days split into hours and minutes, as when it is about catching the psychopath, every minute counts I loved all the characters The If I could, I would give six stars It is my first book from Mark Roberts and I loved it I read 500 pages in one go, in one day I don t remember when last time it has happened to me The story about internet dating sites, about hideous crimes, about preying on human weaknesses, about the dark side of our soul I love how the book is written The timeline is four days split into hours and minutes, as when it is about catching the psychopath, every minute counts I loved all the characters The pace is fast, everything is happening so quickly The only thing which puzzled me why the year 2021 And I picked up this book in my library, first of all, because the whole story was happening in Liverpool so close home I am definitely going to read the rest of Mark Roberts books

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This book is my first experience of Mark Roberts, and was a real rollercoaster The first half was slow, and took a lot longer than needed, the next half was brilliant fast paced and exciting but the ending was a let down I had guessed the twists early on, and there was nothing new in the final chapter, so it fell a bit flat Also, what happened to Daniel He disappeared and wasn t mentioned again

    When the body of a woman is found on the banks of the River Mersey, scalped and her facial features removed, links are immediately made to a recent murder in nearby Warrington When a third body is found, bearing the same injuries, DCI Eve Clay knows that there is a particularly sadistic serial killer operating on her patch Each of the dead women had one major thing in common they were all hoping to find love on the same dating website Eve feels that there is only one way to stop The Ghoul When the body of a woman is found on the banks of the River Mersey, scalped and her facial features removed, links are immediately made to a recent murder in nearby Warrington When a third body is found, bearing the same injuries, DCI Eve Clay knows that there is a particularly sadistic serial killer operating on her patch Each of the dead women had one major thing in common they were all hoping to find love on the same dating website Eve feels that there is only one way to stop The Ghoul and that is to go undercover online, posing as his perfect victim I m a huge fan of Mark Roberts and A Date With Death was one of the books I was most looking forward to reading this year Ever since reading the first in the DCI Eve Clay books, Blood Mist, this series has become one of my firm favourites and Eve has become one of my favourite characters This book, the fifth in the series, keeps up the high standard that I have come to expect.One of the things I like most about this series is that we don t have ordinary, run of the mill serial killers if there is such a thing In the past, we ve had bodies arranged in patterns and a paedophile killer but now we have someone who slices off the faces of their victims For those, of a squeamish nature, we don t actually read about the act itself, but we do, towards the end of the book, find out the reason why the killer does this, making for a very gruesome scene Eve Clay is a great character with a gripping backstory, her traumatic past shaping how she is today Although you do not need to have read the previous books in the series to enjoy this one, I have really enjoyed seeing how her character has developed Even though she is dealing with a particularly horrific case, she appears to be becomingable to separate her professional and personal life, not fretting as much about her young son as she has done in previous books.Mark Roberts has definitely done it again with A Date With Death, writing a gripping book, impossible to put down I m already looking forward to the next one maybe, in the meantime, I ll bump into Clay s husband and son at Goodison Park
