ABOUT LEIGH RUSSELL

Published in English and in translation in Europe, her Geraldine Steel and Ian Peterson titles have appeared on many bestseller lists, including #1 on kindle. Leigh's work has been nominated for several major awards, including the CWA New Blood Dagger and CWA Dagger in the Library, and her Geraldine Steel and Ian Peterson series are in development for television with Avalon Television Ltd. Journey to Death is the first title in her Lucy Hall series published by Thomas and Mercer.
This is the third in the Lucy Hall series from prolific writer Leigh Russell. The first was set in the Seychelles, the second in Paris and now in Rome. For a young girl who travels alone a lot chasing criminals, she has not really developed any sense of self-preservation. As a reader I find that inwardly I am constantly trying to rein her in for her own safety, and this is what is great about the Lucy Hall books. I recommend reading them all to get into the character. I didn't predict the end, and it was so compelling it didn't take me long to read. Looking forward to the next in the Geraldine Steele series, also by Leigh Russell, out soon I believe.
