Chapter Twenty-seven. Since giving up the day job, her books have been shortlisted for a number of awards. Most of her spare time is spent with her horse and dog, or clambering over archaeological sites.

Jo Bannister’s gritty police novels featuring DI Liz Graham have been likened to Lynda La Plante’s Prime Suspect. But neither could have imagined the frightening ordeals they are both about to endure.

Bannister's last Castlemere book was A Taste For Burning. A strong and interesting plot line adds to the enjoyment. Thanks Jo Bannister for another really readable book. From Publishers Weekly. Castlemere, an English city of about 80,000, isn't usually a hotbed of crime.

I think Jo Bannister has the mystery books licked.

Jo Bannister (born 31 July 1951 in Rochdale, Lancashire) is a British crime fiction novelist. 1 Life and work Clio Rees and Harry Marsh novels. Striving with Gods (. An Uncertain Death) (1984). A Taste for Burning (.

Bannister's especially persuasive in dramatizing Graham's combination of outrage, sympathy, and obsessive determination to get the man who's now added her to his list. A notch below A Taste for Burning (1995)-which places it just below the highest ranks of the British procedural. In an ordinary genre writer's hands, both the undercover ops would generate some nail-biting tension before their predictable success; but both of the Castlemere coppers get badly burned when their masquerades are so successful that they backfire, leaving Graham and Donovan violated and traumatized.

The three police officers who head up Castlemere's detecting team work together like the parts of a well-oiled machine. Detective Superintendent Frank Shapiro is a thirty-year man who has finally found a detective inspector with the instincts and discipline to complement his experience - Liz Graham. Liz, the first female detective on the force, is now one of its most respected senior officers. Her detective sergeant, the volatile Cal Donovan, possesses a reckless courage that is his greatest strength and his most dangerous weakness - and something Liz finds as indispensable as it is infuriating. A vicious gang of thieves has hit the city, and the easiest way to snag them is to infiltrate their organization. Can Donovan pull off the assignment without losing his cover - or his life? Liz goes undercover in a different way when she decides to act as bait for a baffling serial rape case, but is the department - and her marriage - strong enough to handle the results?

I had thought that "A Taste for Burning" was going to be the best that this series could offer, however, this author just keeps growing. Her characters, Shapiro, Graham and Donovan, are drawn so sharply and humanly that they become more believable than ever. A strong and interesting plot line adds to the enjoyment. Thanks Jo Bannister for another really readable book.

A great book ! Bannister does a masterful job writing suspense and mystery. I love this whole series. Fun reading a story that takes place in the UK.

Bannister's three police officers work well together and complement each other's police work style. Frank Shapiro is a thirty year pro, Liz Graham is the first female detective on the force and Cal Donovan is a bit of a maverick, reckless and tenacious. In this case, a vicious gang of thieves have hit the city of Castlemere and Donovan infiltrates their organization. Added to this problem are a train robbery and a ring of dog fighters. Another story line addresses the search for a serial rapist and adds more suspense to the mix. The author handles the issue of rape with strength and intelligence.

As always, Bannister delivers a taut story with believable characters.
Topmen
Bannister has written a classic British police procedural. She has also addressed a very difficult subject - rape - with sensitivity and provided a viewpoint not often seen. Her characters are well-drawn and likable - even the minor ones. There's little mystery, but "watching" the two major characters in this outing solve the crime is fascinating.
