Luther: The Calling by, Neil Cross


If you're a fan of the BBC TV series Luther, you'll enjoy this book. Written by the creator of the show, Neil Cross, this novel is a prequel to the show that takes place just before the events of the first episode. Since it's a prequel, there is no Alice Morgan, but there is a brief appearance by DS Justin Ripley. He is seconded to Luther's investigation and performs a follow up interview, though there is no interaction with Luther himself. All the other favorites are there: Ian Reed, Rose Teller, Benny Silver, Martin Schenk, Zoe, and Mark.

The crime is dark and twisted and the the perpetrator is a nasty piece of work. What else would you expect from a Luther story?
