Grave Doubts

Grave DoubtsSehr spannend erz hlt, berzeugende Figuren, authentisches Umfeld Aber die hautnahe, detailreiche Beschreibung der Sexualmorde fand ich einfach nur absto end Ist diese Ausf hrlichkeit n tig Nicht wirklich Ich denke, die Leserschaft h tte sicherlich auch so verstanden, dass hier ein Monster von Serient ter am Werke ist bzw gleich zwei davon Es h tte gereicht, die Details der Fantasie zu berlassen So haben die Vergewaltigungsszenen etwas ziemlich ekelhaft Voyeuristisches. This book kept me up late into the night reading I also had to read with a lot of lights on in my apartment It wasn t a scary book, it was a creepy book It was rather long, 692 pages, and it probably could ve cut out about a hundred pages in the middle without impacting the general story of the book too much Louise Nightingale s character made at some times want to drive me to drink She was almost too independent, refusing to ask for help The writing was clear and compact Although dealing with serial murder, it wasn t an overly violent book it didn t describe in much detail the killings, which I liked I enjoyed this book very much Sergeant Louise Nightingale Is The Model Police Officer Calm, Composed And Always In Control When Her Colleagues Discover A Connection Between A Series Of Sexual Attacks And An Online Contest Called The Game , Nightingale Becomes Involved In Tracking Down The Perpetrator Amazing book When I started reading it I didn t realise it was the third in a series but it can be read as a stand alone novel Could not put it down Wonderful writing, brilliant characters I especially liked it because the killer didn t have superhuman powers Things did go wrong for him, which made a refreshing change Also, even though it was a police procedural, the police officers private lives were just as interesting as the crimes Excellent storyline that built to a cliffhanger climax Will definitely be reading the rest in this series. A real meh Another charming, attractive, overly intelligent psychopath Another beautiful but damaged young female detective A really dorky love infatuation.Wish it could have dropped three of the four descriptions above, it might have been less skimmable When my eyes start rolling I know that I should find something better to read. Most books about serial killers are not great literature, but even by the lowest standards of the genre, this is formulaic rubbish The writing is poor and the editing even worse If even the book s editor couldn t be bothered to correct the basic punctuation mistakes, you wonder why they bothered to publish it at all Ah yes, because it ticked all the boxes of the serial killer formula Don t waste your time.PS I only gave it one star because I don t know how to give it zero and still have it included in the average star rating. I found this way too violent and graphic and dreaded picking it up again each time There were also too many characters in it with the result that I lost track of the plot at times Definitely my least favourite of the four Corley novels in this series. Inhalt Der Thriller Crescendo von Elizabeth Corley beginnt damit, dass sich die Polizistin Louise Nightingale als Lockvogel f r einen Vergewaltiger ausgibt, der seine Opfer ein Online Spiel ,,The Game ausfindig macht und schon seit langem sein Unwesen treibt Die Aktion gelingt in letzter Sekunde, nachdem Nightingale sich pers nlich mit dem Vergewaltiger Wayne Griffiths getroffen hat und dieser sie hinterr cks berf llt und Wayne Griffiths anschlie end verhaftet und verurteilt wird.Nun allerdings beginnt die Leidensgeschichte von Nightingale von der sie nicht das geringste ahnt, da Wayne Griffiths lediglich die eine H lfte des M rder Duos ist und sein ,,Meister noch in Freiheit ist Dabei ist das Stalking via E Mail, das er bei Louise Nightingale betreibt noch das harmloseste Als hochintelligenter Softwareentwickler ist er in der Lage, Louises Rechner zu manipulieren und seiner weiteren Taten per Internet vorzubereiten.Erst als Detective Chief Inpector Andrew Fenwick der eigentliche Serienheld von Elizabeth Corleys Romanen wieder zur ckkommt, entdeckt er die Zusammenh nge zwischen den Taten von Wayne Griffiths und denen seines Meisters und setzt alles daran, ber den inhaftierten T ter an dessen Hintermann und Meister heranzukommen.Schreibstil und Fazit Elizabeth Corley schildert ihre Charakter in dem Thriller ,,Crescendo beraus realistisch und der Leser ist von der ersten Seite an voll bei der Handlung Es kommt zu keinem Moment Langeweile auf, da man sich st ndig fragt, was als n chstes passieren wird.Der Thriller ist so geschrieben, dass man f rmlich das Leid beziehungsweise die Furcht und Angst von Louise Nightingale selber versp rt.Dazu ist die gesamte Ermittlungsarbeit, die im Buch vor sich geht, sehr ausf hrlich und auch einleuchtend erkl rt, wobei alles realit tsnah geschrieben ist und der Leser sich nicht denkt, dass es sich hierbei um ein schlechtes Drehbuch handelt oder sonstiges.Von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite sehr fesselnd und durch den Aufbau, das Buch beginnt wie viele Krimis enden der B se wird berf hrt und verhaftet sehr gelungen, da es eine sehr gelungen Abwechslung darstellt. Serial killers are heinous by definition It s a good thing there are of them in books then there are in real life One of the creepiest I ve read about in a while is in Elizabeth Corley s book, Grave Doubts Not only has he literally been getting away with murder for years, but he has a disciple thankfully in prison for the duration of the novel.Louise Nightingale, a police officer, was deployed to entrap the disciple, and almost pays for it with her life The serial killer decides she has to die, tooand his progress towards doing so continues over the course of the story.Nightingale is a very interesting character Aside from suffering PTSD as a result of the entrapment, there is a mystery in her own life regarding her family, and she slowly manages to piece it together.Nightingale s superior officer is Andrew Fenwick, also a man with a complicated story.To see how all of these peoples narratives entwine and resolve, you ll just have to read the book.There are books with Andrew Fenwick in them, although I have yet to read them Based on what I ve read in this one, I ll be back for. Another overly violent, utterly predictable serial killer story And again with the cop as the prey, which just strikes me as SOOOO unrealistic.
