    6. Oh lord Talk about a slog I thought I d give this one a try and boy, do I regret it This was terrible, simply put It suffers from two problems, a major and minor one The major makes the minor seem a lot worse but whatever There may be minor spoilers here.The major this book is entirely one of telling What action there is is sparse Very, very sparse For example, 75% of the way through, the doctor s hubby leaves her We re told this We re told how things changed with a suitcase and how one was miss [...]

    8.

    9. I came across this book recently in my local library and the blurb on the back cover looked interesting, so I gave it a go It is a debut novel from an Irish writer and it is set in Dublin It turns out that this is a rather good read and I hope that the writer continues with a series The body of a young girl is found in a shallow grave in the Dublin mountains and the ritualistic manner in which the body is laid out gives D.I O Connor reason to consult Kate Pearson, a Psychologist, on whether or n [...]

Kate Pearson has been a very successful criminal profiler but now works with young offenders to try and change their ways She still hankers after profiling and jumps at the chance to help the police profile the killer of two young girls who gave been strangled and posed with red ribbons in their hair.With all the glowing reviews I have been keen to read Red Ribbons for a while and never got round to it but I must admit to being disappointed in it The plot premise is good a disturbed killer picki [...]

    11. Louise Phillips debut novel, Red Ribbons is a psychological police procedural set over a few autumn days The story is told through three alternating voices the killer s, Kate Pearson s and Ellie s Ellie s voice in particular is very strong and engagingly written, but the characterisation of all three is well developed In contrast, the other characters are a little thin and two dimensional In particular, Detective Inspector O Connor as the fourth central character is somewhat of an enigma and the [...]

    12. It was a very enjoyable gritty psychological crime thriller with a gradual increase in suspense which has the reader quickly wanting to turn page over page to find out what happens right up to the very end Enthralling stuff

    13. I really liked this book, was pleasantly surprised and looking forward to reading other books of this author.

    14. This is one of the most comprehensive reviews I ve read on RED RIBBONS, shortlisted for best Irish Crime Novel of the Year Cormac O Keeffe If you like psychological crime with strong characters then this might be for you.Red Ribbons may be about the hunt for a serial killer, but for me, what really stands out from this brilliant debut novel by Louise Phillips is Ellie, Ellie Brady.Red RibbonsAlthough not introduced until the fourth chapter fifth if you count the prologue , some six months after [...]

    15. Two girls are discovered buried in shallow graves Both are laid out in a particular way, with their hair plaited with red ribbons tied in them Dr Kate Pearson is a profiler who is struggling to find the balance between family and work Together with DI O Conner they try and predict the killer s next move Ellie is in a psychiatric hospital for the murder of her daughter The talks between Ellie and her new doctor run alongside the other story line until ultimately we see the connection I nearly put [...]

    17. I raced through reading Red Ribbons even though I was reading 4 other books at the same time It s a fast paced thriller with short cliff hanger chapters that left me wanting to read and It was definitely a difficult book to put down Phillips created believable characters that each had little quirks or small passages about their backgrounds that made the reader crave to know about them The story was told through 3 4 voices, depending on how you look at it, in alternating and like I said small, [...]

    18. I absolutely loved this book Louise Phillips did a great job in creating the perfect thriller I must admit that this is not the usual kind of book I would go for, buy the minute I started this book, I was glued to it.I was kept interested from beginning to end The main characters were do likeable and they seemed so real The other thing I found was that the story seemed real and moved along at a great pace.Once I opened this book I found it hard to close it again until I reached the very end It s [...]

    19. I thoroughly enjoyed Red Ribbons It s a well paced thriller, with believable characters that you crave to know about It is told through three voices the serial killer, the profiler and a woman accused of murdering her daughter years earlier In this way, we are sucked right in as we are allowed to see and feel everything as the story unfolds This is a debut novel that is right up there with the best of them

    20. Not quite a four star but I prefer to round up rather than down for a first time read author This was a triple strand novel where each strand, unlike the plaits that feature predominantly, are clearly marked in different type, a little unnecessarily I think since each voice is well enough defined for it to be quite quickly obvious who is who, especially with the chapter headings also indicating where the action is.Place is also very well evoked.

    21. I absolutely loved this book, I found it hard to put down, and usually I like to take my time and savour a novel Crime has always been my favourite genre and the psychological aspect interests me, so this ticked all my boxes I will most definitely be buying all books featuring Dr Kate Pearson.

    22. Enjoyable thriller It s unusual to read a book liked this set in Dublin it made it interesting I found I was hooked until the end.

    23. Fascinating, thrilling and hard to put down It doesn t feel like a debut novel at all looking forward to read the Doll s house

    24. In Ireland there s a serial killer preying on young girls When found in their remote graves they look eerily similar Posed as if in prayer, their hair is carefully braided with a distinctive red ribbon Psychologist and criminal profiler Kate Pearson is assigned to the case Each new grave gives her a deeper insight into the killer, helping her develop a profile As she does her investigation we get brief first person narratives by the killer himself, and a surprising connection to Pearson may conn [...]

    25. I really tried to give this one a chance but ultimately gave up The characters felt flat and it just was too slow and dry for me I had been looking for something as enjoyable as the mysteries procedurals of Tana French Jane Casey but sadly this wasn t it.

    26. Reviewed by Hubert O HearnIt absolutely delights me that Polis Books has released the first US edition of Louise Phillips Red Ribbons Phillips is Ireland s finest mystery writer and Red Ribbons marked the first appearance of her criminal psychologist Kate Pearson, however my enjoyment of the occasion is not so much for the writer or for that matter our moss covered island as it is for entirely selfish reasons You can read this entirereview and others like it at San Diego Book Review.

    27. A 12 year old girl disappears from a Dublin neighborhood and then turns up dead and buried in a hidden grave in a park A couple days later another girl about the same age disappears from another Dublin neighborhood and also turns up buried in that secluded park Both girls were swimmers and were buried with their long hair braided and tied with old fashioned red ribbons They had also been posed post mortem in a kneeling position with their hands folded as if in prayer A criminal psychologist prof [...]
