DEAD GONE
DEAD GONE | Luca Veste
The young girl you have found isn’t the first experiment I’ve carried out. She won’t be the last. A tense, unpredictable crime debut that will not only have you gripped, but will chill you to the bone. Perfect for fans of Stuart MacBride and Mark Billingham.

So many British detective series, so little time. But that won‘t stop me from trying to devour them all. While I wasn‘t at all surprised by the conclusion I enjoyed the journey and look forward to spending more time with Murphy & Rossi. Binge-buying FTW!

Serial killer is stalking victims for unethical and deadly experiments. Victims have ties to City of Liverpool University. DI Murphy and DS Rossi are the lead investigators. Luca Veste is an interesting writer. I found the characters unique and the plot kept me guessing to the very end. I'm looking forward to the next book and I would recommend this series to those who love psychological thrillers.

TrishB Yay 🎉🎉 glad you enjoyed it. I‘ve read 2 and I think I have another 2 on the pile and I think a new one may have just come out! Do you like Mark Billingham (Tom Thorne series?) I‘m looking forward to his new one this week 😁 Though may save for holidays! 13mo
Andrew65 @TrishB I‘ve only read one and do need to get back to them especially as Set not too far from where I was born in South London if I remember correctly. 13mo
TrishB Yes they are set in S. London - Tom Thorne is one of my fav characters - these definitely get better as the series progresses and characters develop! 13mo

Andrew65 @TrishB That‘s good to hear as was not significantly impressed by book 1. 13mo
TrishB Definitely a series that grows! 13mo
Andrew65 @TrishB That‘s great to hear, time to return to the series! 👍 13mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I‘ve got all Veste‘s books except for the new one. I‘ve read Tom Thorne but with Andrew for a group read and we only did the first one. @TrishB 13mo
Andrew65 @EadieB We also read his standalone In The Dark as a Group Read. @TrishB 13mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Yes you are right! Forgot about that one! 13mo
Andrew65 @EadieB You will love Dead Gone, a nice juicy serial killer story to get stuck into! @TrishB 13mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I‘ve had it on my list but never got to it! Going to get to it soon! 13mo
Andrew65 @EadieB I‘d never heard of them before @TrishB recommended them and set in her native Liverpool, which is a truly great and unique city. Ask The Beatles! (edited) 13mo

Started the first book in the DI Murphy and DS Steele series by Luca Veste, thanks to a recommendation by our very own @TrishB . This is set in her home town of Liverpool and not read many books set there so looking forward to it. And always on the look out for new Detective series.

A good start so far!

jpmcwisemorgan That‘s so cool! 13mo

Andrew65 Think this is a series we should nominate for a Group Read. 1y
EadieB @Andrew65 that would be a good idea. I like the ones you nominated. We do need to get back to those. 1y
EadieB Only problem is libraries in US may not carry these books. That‘s why I had to order them from UK. 1y
Andrew65 @EadieB That‘s the same for me with a lot of the books nominated this time. 1y
EadieB @Andrew65 We should try to find books we can all get from library if possible. 1y
Andrew65 @EadieB That‘s why I nominated a book from two series we have already read a couple of books in. The Peter Robinson is also possible but I think you have read that. 1y
EadieB @Andrew65 I think the books from the series we already started will probably be picked. I‘m going to vote for them. (edited) 1y
EadieB @Andrew65 I changed my books in order to make them more accessible to all and more affordable. 1y
Andrew65 @EadieB sometime the problem is knowing what is available in the U.K. and US. 1y
EadieB I can tell what‘s available in Us and you can check UK. 1y

Not only set in Liverpool, but partly on the University campus where I work! As the author was a student at the time 😀
@RealLifeReading

Alfoster Nice!👏👏👏! 3y
mjdowens That is so exciting👍 3y
LeahsBookNest My husband is from Liverpool and I've been looking for novels set there. Nice! 3y
TrishB @LeahsBookNest The whole series is set here 😀 There is also another thriller book series by Ed Chatterton set here. Obviously, these are generally books about murders, so not necessarily showing the city in its best light 😄 3y

I really liked Veste‘s writing style, it‘s smart and sharp and he juggled various viewpoints and timelines like a pro. There are some parts told from the point of view of the killer and I love getting to see a peek inside their depraved minds. He‘s a ruthless serial killer and he immensely enjoys toying with not only his victims, but also the police. This is violent and at times a bit gory, so it‘s definitely not for the faint of heart.

Good debut novel, seriel killer thriller, some gory bits. Based in my home town and my workplace which was a bit surreal!! Will be reading more of the author.

minkyb So glad you liked it. Must be a bit surreal to read about such dark stuff happening where you work. 3y
JackieSmith Sounds like creepy fun! 3y
RadicalReader @TrishB looking forward to this novel sounds awesome love crime novels and ones that hold you and don't let go 3y

New author to me. My daughter picked up the first one and said you'd like this - author from Liverpool (where we live!) book based in University of Liverpool (where I work!), so I brought two and my hubby went in and brought me the other two!! Then we came out of the shop and the author is there signing books in a couple of weeks 😀

I'm 21 pages in, and the clunky descriptions are just too much. This series gets good reviews, but it's 397 pages long, and I don't think I can handle that many labored metaphors... so instead I will enjoy my delicious snack {pb pretzels + choc chips + marshmallows} with some Modern Family instead of a book.
