I have a hearty dislike of psychopathic serial killers! Gary Goodhew and his colleagues continue to be well drawn and the settings evoke a sense of place too. unfortunately the story was a bit of a scramble with coincidence stretched to the max. .Ultimately the story is disappointing.

I liked Cambridge Blue better. This book had too many characters and dragged out . Maybe she should write more like Ruth Rendell.

Very unusual book. I loved Rebus so this is a welcome book of Scottish police. They really do things different there.

The Calling is the third in the DC Goodhew series, and was published earlier this year by Constable & Robinson. Although The Calling could be read as a stand-alone story, I would certainly recommend that the first two of the series; Cambridge Blue and The Siren are read first. The first two books give the reader a little insight into the enigmatic lead character DC Gary Goodhew.

I have been really impressed by this series so far. Alison Bruce has created a lead detective who is something of a mystery, to the reader and to his colleagues at the station. Goodhew is a bit of a maverick, with a determination that often rubs people up the wrong way, I also sense a little bit of vulnerability about him, a teensy lack of self-confidence that peeps through when he gets something right and is rewarded by praise from his superiors.

The plot line of The Calling is complex, fast-paced and introduces a host of characters. There is an air of menace and a touch of madness running throughout the book in the form of the lead female character Marlowe. The reader is never quite sure whether she can be trusted to tell the truth, and whether her determination to name her ex-boyfriend as a murderer is based on fact, or is a result of her anger and jealousy. Alison Bruce does not hold back in her writing, there are scenes that are quite explicitly sexual, and others that are impossibly cruel, but this only adds to the tension and build up to the very fine, and unexpected ending.

Goodhew's colleagues; WPC Sue Gully and DC Kincade both feature heavily in the story, and both characters have been developed well, with lots of scope for more stories involving these two in the future.

Alison Bruce has proved that she is up there with the finest of crime authors and has created a series and a lead character that is going from strength to strength.

As this third novel in the DC Gary Goodhew series opens, the reader is briefly introduced, one by one, to members of the somewhat dysfunctional Burrows family, which is planning a surprise celebration of the 80th birthday of the family matriarch. Two of the family members fail to show up, however: Andy, as usual feeling himself the least favored child, ponders whether or not to join in the festivities. When his niece, Kaye, doesn't show up, however, it is for much more sinister reasons: She seems to have disappeared.

The case is assigned to DC Goodhew, of the Cambridge CID. With no clues as to Kaye's whereabouts, the only positive note comes from two anonymous calls from a woman who directs the police to a man who she says they should investigate. The suspense amps up as it appears there may be more than one victim.

A cut above many police procedurals, the book contains clever plotting and an interesting protagonist, a young and intuitive young man caught up in spite of himself in some office politics, and a suggestion of [possibly] romantic and [definitely] professional compatibility with D.C. Sue Gully, I will look forward to the next entry in this series.

Recommended.

I visited Cambridge many years ago and that coupled with my love for crime drew me to this author. She writes a series set in that most beautiful and historic of cities. She doesn't however bore you with too much history just enough of a smattering throughout. Also love her main character Goodhew. Just enough mystery about him. I'm hooked on Ms Bruce.
