I have been a fan of Geraldine Steel since the beginning. Russell weaves a mesmerising tale which kept me turning those pages. Not only is there the case of the sex worker, but as involving is what has happened to Ian Peterson which runs parallel to Geraldine's case. As with all her books, Russell plunges me into the story, keeping me highly invested in this fast moving book. By the time I finished, I felt I had been on a rollercoaster ride. 'Deep Cover' is another marvellous addition to this addictive series and Russell again produces a page-turner I could not put aside.
