    1. If you like British police procedurals, you will like this book! It comes across as realistic, edgy, a bit on the dark side.DI Karen Bellows is new to the murder unit and, as a woman, feels she needs to prove her efficiency. That means she's not there to win friends and influence people. Her outer shell is steel and iron and she's not earning any respect from her team. But at home, it's a different story e's the loving and caring partner to Jo, who is pregnant.DS Strand is placed under her watch [...]


    2. The opening chapter took me by surprise. I was craftily lulled into thinking one thing which was nowhere near the mark.The recently transferred Karen Bellows makes a strong entrance to the Matrix Team, supported by DS Nolan and DS Strand. There is violence and graphic descriptions which did make me shudder but after all this is murder and I found myself urging Karen to find the murderers.The characterisation of the 3 central characters is outstanding. All 3 of them are flawed. I instantly dislik [...]


    3. A BRILLIANT second instalment from this new author. Can't wait for more of his stuff. Deadly Determination tells a story of murder and deceit from the perspective of officers working for the Matrix specialist task unit in Liverpool. Several narratives are beautifully interwoven throughout this work creating a masterful journey of suspense and exctiement. Perhaps one of the biggest compliments I can pay this book is its portayal of Liverpool. Some of the description of the city's historic buildin [...]


    4. I would like to thank NetGalley and the publishers for giving me the opportunity to read this book in return for an honest and open review.This is a superb thriller. One of the best British police procedural books that I've read.From the beginning I could identify with the characters. DI Karen Bellows was portrayed brilliantly. At work she was the ruthlessly efficient DI, with no time for the social niceties. At home she was the loving and caring partner to Jo.Set in and around Liverpool, a city [...]


    5. The first chapter about a nice romance between Jimmy and Sarah draws you in then, POW!Mike Strand is a pathetic creature trapped in a loveless marriage with a self-absorbed wife, Patricia. The characters are often difficult to relate to but definitely possessing human foibles. Nevertheless the characters are well described.All in all well crafted but definitely not light reading.


    6. This is the second book by I.D.Jackson, the first being Dead Charming which was outstanding. If then you can improve on outstanding Mr Jackson has certainly accomplished it with this book. These books are stand alone novels but I am sure which ever one is read first it won't be long before you own both. Jimmy O'Dwyer is a very successful businessman, he owns a beautiful house in a prestigious area of Liverpool and he has no-one to enjoy it all with. Angela, his wife, had died suddenly and it had [...]


    7. Deadly Determination by I.D. Jackson is a police procedural set in Liverpool, UK. The fact that is set in the UK will please many crime-loving Brits.It's also good to hear of a British author on the climb towards major success. Fans of I.D. Jackson would already have read Dead Charming prior to this novel. They won't be disappointed.This second offering is equally as good with plenty of action within the first chapter. A murder, a court case and an introduction to members of Karen Bellows' confu [...]


    8. Gritty and realistic, Deadly Determination is a not to be missed crime thriller. I was extremely impressed by this British police procedural.The investigating officers are not pasteboard cutouts. They are individuals with their own lives and problems. DI Karen Bellows, newly transferred into the Matrix unit, is expecting a child with her partner Jo. Her DS Strand has been known to make mistakes and is not to be trusted.His life is a mess. His wife has blown through the small fortune he inherited [...]


    9. Deadly Determination is the second book featuring DI Karen Bellows from I D Jackson. It wasn't until I really got into the book, I realized that I recognized the main character. Two people are found murdered in the dunes and she's running an investigation filled with lies and misdirection. This is even harder for her because she has just met her new colleagues, as she has just transferred into the Serious Crimes Division. It will take all her skills to solve the crime and keep her personal life [...]


    10. DI Karen Bellows has just been transferred to Liverpool and is asked to oversee the work of DS Strand who is thought to be not always performing as well as he should in his work, however it soon becomes apparent to the reader the reasons for this substandard performance. I have to say I didn't have a lot of sympathy for him.Bellows and her team are quickly called in to solve a double murder occurring on the beach. At the same time Bellows is trying to juggle her home life as her partner is now p [...]


    11. I really loved this, his second book. Good characters, good story, twists and turns. Made more real to me, as my son lived just off Hope Street, where some of the key scenes take place, so scary stuff. The first chapter kicks off the novel in great style, taking some time before the pieces of this jigsaw begin to fit together. Two books done, bring on the next. I love this author's work, it's a hard business to break into I hope he gets the success he deserves.


    12. A Fantastic fast exciting read. The author again takes us on a number of twists and turns. The detail of the characters has us believing that we are literally stood next to them, seeing what they are seeing. I cant rate this book highly enough - A must read!


    13. Great story, great characters - one of the detectives and his wife are easy to dislike! Six murders occur in Liverpool and the Matrix team struggle to solve them. Are all the murders connected, is someone pointing the investigation team in the wrong direction? Great read - highly recommended.
