    The whole series is truly amazing

    Where the Silence Calls is the third book in the DI Ridpath Crime Thriller series by M J Lee. I have been lucky enough to read and review the first two books, ‘Where the Truth Lies‘ and ‘Where The Dead Fall‘. The series follows Detective Inspector Thomas Ridpath who returned to work after a leave of absence due to being diagnosed with cancer, now in remission. On his return he was placed on secondment with the coroner’s office, however, he is still being paid by MIT (Major Investigation Teams) though the new boss of the department isn’t happy about that. Her budget is tight and she believes that Ridpath is a hothead and should be let go. In this new instalment, Ridpath is dealing with a series of grisly crimes in which men are being killed, doused and burned. At each scene, the note ‘Play the Game’ is spray-painted in orange paint. He believes that this is the work of a serial killer but the bosses over at MIT are reluctant to see it like that and believe that the men accidentally died. It’s up to Ridpath to prove that there is a serial killer on the streets of Manchester and to find out why he is killing and who he may be targeting next. I simply adore M J Lee’s books, they are imaginative, exciting and put you on the edge of your seat. They are fast-paced and kept me eagerly reading wanting to know what was going to happen next. In book two we got to learn more about Ridpath’s home life and the issues with his wife and daughter. It was nice to see how everything has worked out for them in this book and that Polly was more supportive of her husband and his career, as she really annoyed me in book two. The books are set in my home-town and I always enjoy being able to fully visualise the areas that are mentioned, it’s like when books include a map, but this one is inside of my head 🙂 I also like how realistic the characters and the plot is too realistic sometimes! The books could work as standalone’s, but I would suggest reading the series from the start, especially as a face from the first two books makes an appearance in book three and not in the way I’d hoped. The whole series is truly amazing and if you love a good police thriller then this is the series to read. I do hope that we get to meet DI Ridpath again.

    Where the Silence Calls totally un put down

    I found this a brilliant book full of detail about police, coroners & pathologists. This story is full of interest and did not want to put it down. Some parts of the story were a bit disturbing but in a good story well. All the books I have read by M J LEE have been excellent and well written long may D I Ridpath survive and hope that he continues with the police work. Would have given more stars rating.

    Where the Silence Calls

    This book is written at just the right pace for me. I found all the characters very plausible. Enjoyed learning about the work in a Coroner's Office. I enjoyed too the plight of the Dectective, who had been seconded to work for the Coroner, following his return to work. I found it difficult to put the book down for long.
