    4.5 Stars DI David Vogel has his hands full being first called to investigate the death of a young female teenager. Although Vogel knows this is just a child, it's nothing out of the ordinary ..so he thinks. The girl was supposed to be seeing a school friend, but she was dressed mor...

    This book really surprised me. The story of David Vogel and his team investigating the murder of a 14 year old girl in Bristol. The story is told from multiple points of view. It is hard to write a review without giving things away! A very fast paced read that leaves you wanting more. ...

    I'm going to have to put the majority of this review under a spoiler tag because, in theory, in talking about my major issue with this book I've got to spoil "the big reveal." My issue is that the big reveal is neither big nor a reveal given that I worked it out based entirely on the b...

    3.5 stars rounded up. This was a strange book for me because I pretty much clocked how it was going from the start. I also guessed the culprit really early so the rest of the book didn't really yield anything surprise or shock wise for me. So we start with the discovery of a dead te...

    This book really surprised me. The story of David Vogel and his team investigating the murder of a 14 year old girl in Bristol. The story is told from multiple points of view. It is hard to write a review without giving things away! A very fast paced read that leaves you wanting more. ...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Severn House for an advance copy of Deadly Dance, the first in a new series featuring DI David Vogel of the Avon and Somerset police. Vogel is called in when the body of 14 year old Melanie Cooke is found in a dark alley in Bristol. The case is re...

    Disturbing! A psychological thriller that deals with pedophilia, unresolved sexuality acceptance and relational difficulties in three voices. These three voices lead the story, interacting to form the whole. This modus operandi employed by Bonner lends a fascinating pull slowly draw...

    Deadly dance by hilary Bonner. The discovery of the partially-clothed body of a teenage girl in the heart of Bristol?s red light district indicates a tragic yet familiar scenario. But this marks the start of a baffling murder investigation where nothing is as it first appears. Fourt...

    I received a free copy via Netgalley in exchange for a honest review. I have to say I found this to be a very clever and imaginative piece of writing. The story at times is a bit graphic but I was totally engrossed by the plot and the characters were fascinating. ...

    I found this book very hard going and it didn't hold my interest so everytime I picked it up I had to recap on the story line. Sorry not for me ...

    3.5 stars rounded up. This was a strange book for me because I pretty much clocked how it was going from the start. I also guessed the culprit really early so the rest of the book didn't really yield anything surprise or shock wise for me. So we start with the discovery of a dead te...

    I read the Kindle edition. 3 and 1 / 2 stars Fourteen-year old Melanie ?Mel? Cooke is murdered and left behind some bins at the back of a store after being reported as missing by her mother. DI David Vogel is on the case. He has a daughter the same age as Mel who is named Ros...

    Hilary Bonner launches a new British police procedural series with a gripping story with an unusual twist at the end. However, Deadly Dance's protagonist is a little too cold as a lead character. He is a character with a few problems, and we'll see if he becomes a little more likable a...

    I?ll be honest, I wasn?t sure whether I?d done the right thing in requesting this murder mystery thriller. There are four narrators throughout this tense thriller ? D.I. Vogel?s point of view, which is in third person and three first-person viewpoints, who are three tormented...

    In the first of a new series we are introduced to DI David Vogel of the Avon and Somerset police. When the body of fourteen year old Melanie Cooke is discovered Vogel is called upon to investigate and he cannot but help be reminded of his own 14 year old daughter Rosamunde. His team in...

    The first installment in the DI David Vogel series, Deadly Dance by Hilary Bonner is a dark yet compelling police procedural. DI David Vogel is affected more than usual when he is assigned to investigate the death of fourteen year old Melanie Cooke since he has a daughter who is the...

    Thank you Netgalley and Severn House for the eARC. This is the first in a new series featuring D.I. David Vogel and is set in Bristol. David is called to the scene of the murder of a 14-year old girl, left behind some garbage containers. All is not as it originally seems and we ente...

    It was difficult to get into the flow of the story with the chapters alternating between the thoughts of three unlikeable characters and the investigative action. Lost interest about a quarter of the way through the book. Did like DI David Vogel, maybe if the next case was more straigh...

    This the first book I have read by Hilary Bonner and one that I enjoyed. It is the first book in a series featuring DI Vogel. A 14year old girl is found murdered and Vogel thinks he has solved the murder, but various events follow that make him realise that this is not the case. I must...

    I usually love Hilary Bonner but I was disappointed with this one. Thank you netgalley for the opportunity to read and review it but it didn't live up to my expectations. Although well written and researched I found there was a lack of suspense, too much was revealed too soon and I fou...

    Very good storyline. Loved the fact this book is based in Bristol and loved the twist at the end. Hope for many more featuring David Vogel. ...

    quite complicated at first but soon becomes clear Three separate murders or are they. ...

    4.5 Stars DI David Vogel has his hands full being first called to investigate the death of a young female teenager. Although Vogel knows this is just a child, it's nothing out of the ordinary ..so he thinks. The girl was supposed to be seeing a school friend, but she was dressed mor...

    This book really surprised me. The story of David Vogel and his team investigating the murder of a 14 year old girl in Bristol. The story is told from multiple points of view. It is hard to write a review without giving things away! A very fast paced read that leaves you wanting more. ...

    I'm going to have to put the majority of this review under a spoiler tag because, in theory, in talking about my major issue with this book I've got to spoil "the big reveal." My issue is that the big reveal is neither big nor a reveal given that I worked it out based entirely on the b...
