I will definitely pick up the first book in the series and then continue with the next one apparently there are currently 5 books in the series with Death Bed being the 4th. I think it is a series that is worth reading from the start to really understand the intricacies of a character such as Geraldine Steel. She is an English teacher who lives in the UK with her family.

I thought this book started off well, I loved the short chapters, the storyline kept me interested but after the first few chapters I was totally bored. Kept reading it though as I won't give up on a book but totally unimpressed. Sep 03, Jo rated it liked it. Unable to put down-finished in less than 24 hours!!!click
Book Tour/Review And Giveaway: Death Bed By Leigh Russell (DI Geraldine Steel #4)
Not a good book Coming after a Reginald Hill novel it really highlighted the shortcomings. I stuck it out because I hate to leave a book unfinished but could easily have bailed out halfway. The book was 1 of a set of 5 from The Book People Not a good book How on earth this author managed to get a series published is beyond me! Oct 31, Nerys Roberts rated it really liked it. The body of a young black woman is found - she was last seen leaving a bar in an inebriated state.
She is desperate to meet her birth mother but that wish is not reciprocated. A great read and I look forward to reading more from this series. Jun 23, michelle rated it liked it. Very disappointed, this is the sixth Geraldine steel book I have read not read any in order and by far worse. I love the fact that I can pick up these stories and get lost in the detail, suspense and twists, however the ending was abrupt and just too quick this time around. I will give immense praise for this thriller on every other level.
It is well written, with a good plot, well introduced characters and believable reactions. I just personally feel there is more as a reader I missed, and it is Very disappointed, this is the sixth Geraldine steel book I have read not read any in order and by far worse. I just personally feel there is more as a reader I missed, and it is purely the last chapter that fell short for me.
Character unwilling to change I felt myself getting kind of annoyed with Geraldine. It was really only her relationship with Sam that saved this one. This was my least favorite so far. Not the story itself but the lack of main character development.

The murders were a bit too horrific for me, especially when you were present with the victim, so I got by with just skimming those scenes. Nov 16, Sandra Preston rated it really liked it.

Jul 13, Pauline rated it liked it. Found this early to be a bit disjointed. Very good read Really enjoyed the new setting, the new characters, possibly geraldines new sexuality And I'm loving the birth Mom angle and the angst that comes with it. Mar 03, Literati Literature Lovers rated it it was amazing. But he is evil…and what he is doing to his victims is beyond evil.
He pulled on a pair of rubber gloves before reaching inside the top kitchen cupboard where he kept a catering saucepan he had bought especially for the purpose. It had taken him some time to find one that was large enough. Lifting it down he moved his carefully selected implements.
Although well-used, they were all gleaming, the blades recently sharpened. By this time readers are already filled with a sense of horror and foreboding as a clever killer is escalating his hunt for victims and DI Steel is part of a team frantically searching for him before more bodies turn up.
After living and working in Kent, this is a big change for Geraldine, and one that will advance her career even though it takes her out of her comfort zone. Still reeling from the recent loss of her mother, her boyfriend and her own perception of who she is, does she even have a comfort zone? Her need to discover the people with whom she belonged felt more pressing than ever. Her sister, who has always ridiculed Geraldine for putting her career above everything else, is opposed to the move. Driven by her desire for justice she suspected Reg Milton was motivated by personal ambition. Geraldine trusted his judgment but she was less sure about trusting him.
As she talked, Sam leaned forward as though eager to hear every word, and Geraldine warmed to her young colleague. Sam Haley was a decent human being, acute with people, and not afraid to voice an opinion or admit when she was wrong. Not only is Geraldine experiencing frustration with trying to find a particularly vicious murderer, but she has every door slammed in her face in her efforts to resolve her personal issues.

As we would expect, DI Steel is able to unmask the killer using her famous intuition, and what a surprising killer! This series, with its very human and sympathetic heroine, is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book directly from the author. I was not paid to read or review this book. All opinions are my own, and I was never influenced by anything or anyone. Mar 12, Miriam Downey rated it it was ok. Yeah, ok, so what! That is my feeling after spending time reading Death Bed by Leigh Russell.
While the premise of the book is adequate intriguing, actually , the sub plots are less than stellar. When you are reading police procedural mysteries, you don't expect to be blown away by good literature, but that is precisely why I picked up Death Bed following The Goldfinch. I was amused to see that K on Goodreads had done the same thing and had similar feelings about Death Bed.
I wanted to read something quick with no surprises. That is certainly what I got!
In the fourth book in the series, Detective Inspector Geraldine Steel has moved from a position with the Kent police force to the London Metropolitan police force. She has come highly recommended as a consummate officer, so when a gruesome murder occurs shortly after her arrival, expectations are high that she will be able to solve it quickly. She has a wonderful Sergeant, Sam, who tells it like it is, and they make a good team.
The one murder extends to two and the office is worried that there is a serial killer on the loose. Geraldine is intent on solving the crime, in part to make her mark at the new police department, and also because she has received some disturbing personal news.
