Sean is on the trail of a killer who is frighteningly smart. He knows about forensics and every scene he shows up at is free of any DNA evidence. What struck me when reading this book was the fact that you get to see coppers work a case the real way, not like an episode of CSI. It had me horrified and intrigued in equal measures.
The pace was pretty good but this was certainly secondary for me as the storyline and characters were brilliant.
Literally as soon as the last page was turned I was straight onto Amazon to find out when the next one is due. All I can say is that Delany has clearly found his calling following a career in the police. Being an author is now clearly what he is meant to do and I for one will be keeping a close eye on all future Delaney related news. Highly recommended; especially for fans of Peter James and Mark Billingham. View all 6 comments. Jan 05, Janet rated it really liked it. Cold Killing is a debut from the pen of Luke Delaney.
Cold Killing (DI Sean Corrigan, book 1) by Luke Delaney
What makes this book slightly different is that the author is an ex detective himself and reads with the plausibility of one. Here we meet DI Sean Corrigan, a detective with gifts. Coming from an abused background himself he has the ability to think dark thoughts, darker thoughts than the average mind, knowing how a killer would think and feel, which gives him a certain edge over other detectives. It's an interesting concept nothing that diffe Cold Killing is a debut from the pen of Luke Delaney.
It's an interesting concept nothing that different or that it hasn't been done before, but Corrigan is a likable character with flaws and feels more realistic somehow.
The story itself is pretty good. Random victims that are being murdered with seemingly no link between them. A suspect that may be the actual suspect or not. A dark bad guy that gives you plenty to dislike, a supporting cast of characters that add to the story well and fleshed out enough for you to get to know them.
Lots of interesting twists and turns that keeps the reader guessing with a couple of twists towards the end. Some readers may see whats coming others may not. I did, but it certainly didn't detract from this fairly pacy novel that had me wanting to keep reading another chapter. If there are any criticisms I would say the book felt a tad too long, could of lost a few pages without losing any story, but I guess it was meant to feel like a 'real' police investigation and that doesn't happen overnight!!
There's nothing really new here, the detailing is quite graphic at times and violent which some may find off putting but I enjoyed the story as a whole, more than I expected too if I'm honest.
So much so that I've gone straight onto book two. I can see these stories getting better and better and becoming more addictive as production moves on. Guess we'll see. View all 5 comments.

The killer leaves no clues, no forensic evidence and his victims have nothing in common. Its really hard to say much more without giving the plot away, but I have to say its exciting and very well written.

I know I can't wait to read more from this writer in the future View all 7 comments. Jan 06, Brenda rated it liked it. This was a good book, but at times it dragged for me. There was not a lot of suspense. Although I liked Sean Corrigan and his crew, I was also a little disappointed in some of their antics. I am interested in where the author next takes these characters and will read more of this series. It appears there will be a future meeting with one of this book's antagonists.
I do have one gripe, and it occurs in other stories besides this one. I have no sympathy for a woman who weds a policeman and then co This was a good book, but at times it dragged for me.
