    One thought on “The Killing Room”

    1. This is the 3rd book in the China Thrillers by Peter May.I am a great admirer of Peter May s novels and enjoyed the first two books in this series so it was no big surprise to me that I enjoyed this one also I especially enjoy book series as it gives the characters plenty of time to develop and allows for sub plots to be carried over to the next book This series is steadily improving and the two main characters Beijing detective Li Yan and American pathologist Margaret Campbell are becoming fam [...]

    2. Book 3 of the China Thrillers by Peter May and featuring Dr Margaret Campbell and Deputy Section Chief Li Yan I have to give a shout out to Gary for recommending the first book to me and now I am hooked into reading about these characters.In this edition Dr Campbell is back in the United States In China, specifically Shanghei, 18 bodies are uncovered at a construction site and Deputy Section Chief Li Yan is brought into the case from Bejing to help his counterpart in Shanghei, Nien Mei Ling Chie [...]

    4. A promising start mauled by stupid relationship drama and an anti abortion agenda.I really like Li Yan as a character and I really like the setting, so I ve kept reading the China Thrillers even though I don t really like Margaret Campbell or the ridiculous back and forth misunderstandings between Li Yan and Margaret Seriously, I feel like I was better at relationships than these two when I was in high school and I was CRAP at relationships in high school and still am It s like the same three mi [...]

    6. A wonderful taste of China, a nice, tightly plotted mystery, but a truly annoying female protagonist After all, if you re going to live in China, how bright is it to deliberately antagonize public officials Doing everything you can to alienate people isn t feisty, or independent, it s aggressive, annoying, and in a foreign country where you haven t bothered to learn even the simplest of phrases in the language, it s criminally stupid.This is one of those books where the reader is screaming at th [...]

    12. This was an amazing book when you consider that Peter May is Scottish and he is writing a Chinese thriller and he does it very well I learned a lot about the cultural and social elements in China through the experiences of Margaret as she works as a forensic pathologist.The characters are well developed and the story gets intense as Margaret and Mei Ling battle for Li Yan s attention The plot centers around the Chinese law of one child per family and the consequences of many Chinese women as the [...]

    13. I am mostly enjoying this series, although I am growing very weary of the constant romantic tension between the two main characters Hopefully this will be scaled back in the next book, although I have my doubts.

    14. Boek 1 en 2 van deze reeks vond ik geweldig, dus boek 3 kon niet ontbreken Het verhaal start stevig en spannend maar er komt al snel voor mij te veel relatie drama tussen Li en Margaret bij kijken, wat de rest van het verhaal nogal voorspelbaar maakte Toch nog een sterk eind maar al bij al minder goed dan de eerste 2 Nummer kocht ik vorig jaar al dus die lees ik binnenkort ook nog wel.

    15. As a fan of Peter May I had not read his China Thrillers I do most of my travelling by detective book and it was great to travel to China and to meet the enigmatic policeman of this series Now need to go back and read 1 2.

    16. Though the China series doesn t have the haunting beauty of May s island books, the storytelling is still superb.

    17. 3.5 stars Set in Shanghai Li and Campbell are involved in the murder and dismemberment of 44 women Forensic science plays a large part in solving this mystery.

    18. Meget underholdende, men let gennemskuelig, da der kun bliver pr senteret en h ndfuld nye personer hver gang, og en af dem m jo s v re morderen

    19. This started brilliant but then got a bit boring halfway through The ending was very long and drawn out too hence the reason for 3 stars It didn t grip me as well as his other books Now on to the next one see if that s any better

    20. This book is brilliantly written as you are taken on a rollercoaster of emotions The characters are portrayed great Highly recommend.

    21. Ce que j aime avec les challenges, c est de d couvrir des auteurs vers lesquels je n irai pas autrement Cryssilda nous a propos en juillet de lire Peter May, ce n est qu la biblioth que que j ai su qu il crivait des polars Une lecture plaisante mais sans plus.Le commissaire Li est envoy Shanghai pour une d couverte macabre Des morceaux de femmes ont t retrouv s sur un chantier Il est accompagn de Mei Ling et de Margaret, sa compagne et coll gue Pendant que ces trois l forment un trio conflictuel [...]

    22. I really enjoy Peter May s China based mysteries They re a great mixture of basic procedural tactics, the strong personalities of the investigators, a little romance, Chinese investigative techniques, and forensic science The writing is very simple and straightforward, which is actually welcome since the complexities of Chinese ways, names, and places are often difficult enough to keep straight The plot of The Killing Room is pretty yukky several bodies and body parts are discovered mixed in the [...]

    23. Sorry, I can t finish this Reasons view spoiler Book 1, Li Yan and Margaret fall in love etc.Book 2, Margaret s been spurned by him, so she finds another love interest.Book 3 current book , Margaret has to go back to the USA, so Li Yan finds another love interest hide spoiler How fickle ARE these people And how transparent is the author s plan here I kept on with it, though, because I thought the narrator might just rescue the book and give me a reason to carry on listening love the Scots accent [...]

    25. I am a huge fan of Peter May and would list his Lewis trilogy among my favourite top three crime fiction reads of recent years, so I was excited to take on a new crime series from this author.The Killing Room is the third in the China thriller series, and in my opinion the most gruesome yet The opening scene was brutal and the discovery of a mass grave in Shanghai was brilliantly written The investigation focuses on the hunt for a serial killer of women, but the crimes are even disturbing than [...]
