Leigh Russell Author Channel
The Leigh Russell author channel on youtube kicks off with a (rather too obviously nervous) Leigh talking about the inspiration for the Geraldine Steel series. Hope you find it interesting.

Everyone has their limits

I'll do almost anything to research my books (see photo) - but I draw the line at touching maggots... (don't ask!)

Review of Dead End
in The Times:

"In Dead End, Leigh Russell's third and best novel... all the ingredients combine to make a tense, clever police whodunnit."

Euro Crime Review of Dead End

Dead End reviewed in Euro Crime today:
"DEAD END is the third novel by Leigh Russell, and her third to feature Detective Inspector Geraldine Steel. Well written and chock full of surprises, this hard-hitting, edge- of-the seat instalment is yet another treat for those of us that enjoyed the first two books about this feisty, young, female DI... I love this series about Geraldine Steel and particularly enjoy having a strong female as the central character. With DEAD END, Russell continues to prove that she is a talent worth watching out for. Her imagination and flow of ideas are first-rate and Geraldine Steel looks set to become a household name. Highly recommended."
