Book Description

April 14 2010 Alice Rice Mystery series
Midwinter, a freezing night in Leith, near Edinburgh's red light district. A policewoman's flashlight stabs the darkness in a snow-covered cemetery. The circle of light stops on a colourless, dead face. So begins the hunt for a serial murderer of prostitutes in Gillian Galbraith's third Alice Rice mystery, Dying of the Light. Partly inspired by the real-life killings of prostitutes in Ipswich, this novel explores a hidden world where sex is bartered for money and drugs. Off-duty, Alice's home life continues its uneven course. Her romance with the artist Ian Melville offers the prospect of happiness, but is plagued by insecurity. Her demented but determined neighbour, Miss Spinnell, offers a new challenge to Alice's patience at every meeting. This atmospheric thriller builds on the success of the first two Alice Rice mysteries, Blood in the Water and Where the Shadow Falls, and it is Gillian Galbraith's most accomplished novel yet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting narrative, if a bit confusing. June 14 2014

Could just be me, but found it a bit confusing. It could also be I don't know enough about how they're laws or system works. I still found it an intriguing story line. I've read one of Gillian Galbraith's other books and enjoyed it tremendously. So with this story, the small dissatisfaction could just my perspective.
I'm going to recommend this book and this author, but only 3 stars.
