The Blurb

Kathy Hopkirk, the nation's most detested "celebrity" has disappeared. Famed for her outrageous remarks and nasty observations about ordinary people in the street and stars from the showbiz world, Kathy has always taken great delight in grabbing the headlines and causing as much controversy as possible. But now she is in the news for a different reason. She is missing.

While visiting Manchester for work, she was staying at The Midland. The iconic, world famous hotel was the last place Kathy was seen, CCTV recorded her leaving on foot. Her destination was unknown. Three days later, her disappearance was reported to police by her manager. The sensational news was met with great interest by the British public, though very little surprise or sympathy. Kathy Hopkirk had been pushing it for years. It looks like this time, she may just have gone too far.

DCI Miller and his team are overwhelmed by the amount of vitriol and hatred which surrounds the missing woman. Where do they possibly start with this one? Kathy has had thousands of death threats on Twitter alone.

My Thoughts

This is the forth story in the DCI Miller series of books and it doesn't disappoint. I adore this series of books. In a bloated genre where everyone seems to be a thriller writer Steven Sutties books stand out from the crowd with great story lines that hold on to you and keep you interested throughout the whole of the book, regardless of whether you think you know where the story is going or not and if you do think you know whats happening I can almost guarantee you will be wrong. Its also a refreshing change to read dialogue that feels real, written the way people actually speak to each other, rather than some clunky middle classed nonsense.

The story revolves around the search for Katie Hopkins,Kathy Hopkirk the nations most detested celebrity when she goes missing after leaving the Midland Hotel in Manchester. As always its written with a great dollop of black humour that will have you chuckling away one minute and WTF the next.

This series of books are must reads for me. Highly recommended.
