Read Rhyming Rings Online Free - David Gemmell was the UK's number one fantasy and historical novelist until his death in 2006. A regular Sunday Times bestseller, and international sensation, his legacy lives on through his novels, his influence on the genre, and through the David Gemmell Legend awards.
Rhyming Rings is a never-before-seen Gemmell novel, discovered in his papers by his widow, Stella Gemmell. Merging autobiographical details of Gemmell's life as a journalist in South London with a serial killer and a tinge of the supernatural, this is perfect for fans of David's work, as well as readers of gritty crime novels. Set against the backdrop of a London simmering with poverty, change and racial tension, this taut thriller is a fitting legacy for the great writer.
This book includes a brand new introduction from massive Gemmell fan Conn Iggulden, and an afterword by Gemmell's friend Stan Nicholls.
An ambidextrous killer is murdering women, leaving virtually no evidence behind, and struggling journalist Jeremy Miller wishes he was covering the case. Instead, he's stuck with heart-warming local stories about paraplegic teenagers and elderly psychic ladies.
So when his stories and the murder case start to converge no one is more surprised than Jeremy.
Or, it turns out, more at risk.

I am a major Gemmell fan and was excited to read this last hurrah from the great man. I was a little nervous about it however, since this is a book published long after its time, and I think that a reader can see that clearly.
The good: Gemmell's easy prose style, the warmth of the relationship be...

5 stars, because (in my humble opinion) Sir David Gemmell, was and will always be the best of the best for me, a Legend.

His first novel Legend impressed me with his lead character and if anything with the thirty odd novels that followed it was ability to deliver character that drew me into his historic fantasy. Yet unknown to us all he had writ...

The book has a strong plot, the murder mystery aspect is well handled - it has, as you might expect from...
