    The Disciple must be read immediately after The Reaper to get the full wonderful impact. Our villainous Reaper is back. Oh yes! This feels like part two of The Reaper, rather than a sequel. It is simply AMAZING.The story is set in Brighton, Derby and in the USA. A body is found on Brighton beach, connected to the Damen Brook. This brings the police up north, to investigate Damen.In Derby, the Reaper has returned bringing death to those undeserving and damaging society. The Reaper is a very moder [...]

    I would like to thank the author for allowing me to read such a riveting book and all the other readers who've said he's 1 to watch.It took me a while as I am in the middle of moving house, but I grabbed it with both hands when I got the chance. I thought I knew who the killer was as it was obvious as you read the book. It took some good twists and turns, seeing how the story was moving along. It picked up from where The Reaper had finished and added some new characters into the mix. Some parts [...]

    I read Steven's first book a few months ago and thought it was great and then carried on trying to catch up with my ever expanding TBR list. After a gentle and subtle prompt for Mr Dunne I started The Disciple book 2 a few days ago. This is IMHO absolutely brilliant with an edge of your seat gripping storyline that just got better and better. Well done Sir Steven and I will definitely read the next book very very soon.

    A good solid read from the pen of Steven Dunne. The second instalment following on from The Reaper. It continues on with another multiple murder case in the Drayfin estate that has everyone baffled. Including of course main protagonist Damen Brook, a whisky loving, deep thinking cop that doesn't always do everything by the book, but gets the job done, somehow! I first started reading this some months ago and left it a third of the way through. Was probably too soon after the first book and not i [...]

    Part 2 of The Reaper series, The Disciple sees the return of Detective Inspector Brook with all his quirkiness still intact. Having witnessed the death of serial killer, The Reaper, he is then shocked to discover some cases which carry the signature of the dead killer. How can this be? Is it a copy cat or something more sinister? Why is DI Brook under suspicion in the drowning of a man who lives miles away? Why has an ex FBI agent moved next door? These are questions which the DI needs to find a [...]

    what can i say, i thought the first in the series was good but this book was brilliant. if i could give it more than 5 stars i would do. the beginning of the book was genius and had me hooked straight from the start. my only advice to any readers is to please read the first one before reading this as you will appreciate this book so much more. looking forward to reading the third in the series.

    Brilliant follow up to The Reaper. I really enjoyed The Disciple, follow up to The Reaper. I really like the way Damen Brook works, that he is elusive but can work well with his colleagues if respected by them. Great conclusion to the mysterious Reaper.

    So I finally came around to read the successor of The Reaper: The Disciple. Yes, it is DI Damen Brook again who cannot let go off the reaper. And while he is quite sure the reaper is dead, incidents happening in Derby and at his doughter’s place not only bind him as suspect to a scene, but makes him restart the investigation on the culprit.The novel provides two main strands intelligently intervowen. Besides the investigation by Brook, we learn about the reaper’s past activities in the U.S.A [...]

    The sequel to The Reaper and just as good, looking forward to reading the next in the series.

    Another excellent book by Steven Dunne, I loved his first Damen Brook novel so was looking forward to the next one and I wasn't disappointed. I would recommend this book to friends and family

    This book picks up where 'The Reaper' left off.Initially the book is set in two different time zones and on two different continents and the reasons for that become clear as the story goes on.Without giving too much away the step-father of Terri Brook (who is DI Damen Brook's daughter) is found dead following a drowning which is later judged to be murder. DI Brook emerges as a suspect for this murder as he had threatened the step-father after finding out that he (the step-father) had been having [...]

    Excellent follow up to the Reaper. Another page turner.

    The Reaper's Dead, Long Live The ReaperI couldn't have asked for a better sequel to The Reaper. Brilliantly written. It has all the ingredients of a masterful suspense.The book follows the events in Derbyshire post Victor Sorenson's aka "The Reaper"'s death.Killings are occurring in Derbyshire again, following the same MO as the original reaper and it doesn't take long for DI Damen Brook to realize The Reaper has left behind his legacy in the form of a disciple(s).Though the book is a sequel, it [...]

    The The Disciple blurb: DI Brook thought the nightmare was over- but the Reaper has left behind a horrifying legacy When an accidental drowning is found to be murder, Brook s past relationship with the victim makes him the prime suspect. A fact made worse when he receives a chilling message urging him to continue the work of the serial killer The Reaper, the deranged vigilante who had previously terrorised the UK. When a copycat murder on a Derby estate surfaces shortly afterwards, Brook is left [...]

    Another great book in the series that features Damon Brook and John Noble. I would advice reading The Reaper before reading this second book, whilst some books in a series could be read as standalones, the books are very closely linked. There are two stories in this novel. One which follows a case in America where a pair of serial killers are themselves killed. The other is again set in Derby and to a lesser degree in Brighton. Two detectives from Brighton travel up to Derby to interview Brook w [...]

    Having read and liked the first book in this series, The Reaper, I found this second book a bit of a let down. It started well with a suspicious death in Brighton but then moved to Derbyshire and the original death was hardly mentioned. A rather convoluted plot then develops where the author uses the split-time technique: the current storyline and a parallel one from the past. This serves to interrupt the flow of the story with the result that it was hard to maintain continuity in either plot. T [...]

    Comfortable to be back with Damon Brook and his fixation with The Reaper. Revisiting some of his old paranoia and the foes who troubled him, Brook seems to have done little to have moved on, still haunted by the murder of Laura and his nemesis, Victor Sorenson. When Drexler moves in next door however the same fighting spirit creeps back. A great spin on a familiar story, with the new characters breathing life back to our main protagonist. Only the second book but somehow already seems a tad form [...]

    I bought this as a bit of a punt, not having read anything else by Steven Dunne and rather regretted not having read The Reaper first. However I was too reluctant to put this down to wait.From the start the style of writing was fresh and throughout the book it was mostly kept up. The plot was intricate, the nightmarish atmosphere well-evoked, the eventual solution a surprise, but oh, how profoundly irritating I found it to be jumped from one scene to another in such short, short snippets. There [...]

    I loved it, a yummy complex story that really intrigued and tantalised. I had some suspicions about what was going on but the plot was so skilfully constructed that you couldn't be sure. It raised a lot of questions about justice, the nature of justice and what we would or wouldn't do for that cause. If it were your family - would you? What if you could get away with it, just walk away??I do suggest though that you read the first book in the series (The Reaper) first as it gives necessary backgr [...]

    Lynda
    I loved this book - intense, complex and a quite bit twisty. I read The Reaper (to which this is the sequel) a long time ago and really enjoyed it; I then picked up the third book in the series without realising and recognised Damen Brook so had to go back to find this one and I am so glad I did! Absolutely brilliant, even better than The Reaper, although I think you'd probably have to have read that in order to get the most out of this one.Damen Brook is becoming one of my favourite characters. [...]

    Mary Johnson
    Another superb book from Steven Dunne. The urban legend continues to grow and the author has cleverly laid down the foundations for it to run a long time. Unlike the first book, this time there are personal motives and yet it is hard to resist an empathy for the protagonist. The story within the story is equally engaging and yet again, I was kept guessing to the end. A craftsman of the genre, one doesn't have to be a fortune teller to predict a long and successful future for Mr Dunne! I look for [...]

    Graham
    Only realised as I've come to review this book that it's a sequel. I'm not one that reads a book in just a couple of sittings so I found the switching between the UK and the US confusing and constantly had to back up to remember who characters were.I felt the book was overly-long and full of way too many false endings. I ended up flicking through the last 50 or so pages just because I had come so far.You're never quite sure who to root for, maybe because I have read them out of order and it left [...]

    Terri Phillips
    This is the kind of book that really upsets me. I'm sure its very difficult to get a book published and then boom - something truly awful like this gets not only published, but a following. For me it was drivel from start to finish. I didn't know if the timeline was in the past, present or future. The original crime ended up having almost nothing to do with the story. There were no likeable characters; no one to root for and the ending was a disappointment of gigantic proportions. The book was f [...]

    This is the second book in the D.I. Brook series and follows closely on from 'The Reaper'. Definitely a series where you would need to have read the first book before you ventured into this one. A gritty crime drama, set largely in my home city of Derby, with some great twists and turns as a cold-blooded killer tries to rid society of 'undesirable elements', but who is/are the killer/s? 9/10 from me for this one, can't wait for the next in the series.

    Gail
    I liked The Reaper but I thoroughly loved this. DI Brook is my new hero; totally and utterly fearless, good looking and intuitive too! My only niggle is I wanted to know what had happened with his relationship with Wendy as this was never mentioned. I did like the two interwoven stories and was always wondering where the two tied in. Fantastic book. Steven Dunne is a brilliant writer and I cannot wait to read more by him.

    Nigel
    You definitely need to read "The Reaper" first, as there are so many references to It in the first third of this book. While it isn't too badly written, It does seem different from most crime novels in that a lot of time is devoted to police prcedure, maybe too much, which tends to make it feel unescicarly long and it could possibly have benefited from some gallows humour, another reason it may have dragged.

    Alexina Golding
    fabulous! of you thought the reaper was good you won't be disappointed. Steven has yet again written a fantastic story with great use of the English language. Damen Brook is a good solid character to read about, although not sure if I totally like him. If he knew that he wouldn't care.I thoroughly enjoyed this book and again at times wasn't sure where it was heading. bloody brilliant!

    Lynsey
    I found this book an original idea and it kept me guessing through the twists and turns. I thought I was one step ahead a couple of times, only to be blind sided and I love that in a book.The motivation for the reaper is so well written that it had me question my own morals from time to time- is the reaper so wrong???? A must read if this genre is your thing and if not, why not take a gamble?
