DI Frank Lyle and his team get a nasty blast from the past when Bob Kenyon escapes from prison and is on the loose. Kenyon, a convicted triple murderer and pedophile, is one of the most repulsive criminals Frank has ever faced. He won't rest until Kenyon is apprehended. As Frank scrambles to solve the mystery of a murdered city councillor and avert another tragedy, his department must cope with a violent, extremist act. Can Frank put all the pieces of the mystery together before it's too late?

Best Served Cold is one of DI Frank Lyle Mystery's darkest books as it deals with such issues as sexual abuse, homophobia, and political extremism. Frank, a loving family man, is torn between protecting his wife, Jayseera, and daughter, Jasmine, while still putting all his effort into his job. This is one of Frank's most challenging cases and since he's already dealt with Bob Kenyon in the past, this case really hits home. I have a lot of respect for Frank both as a detective investigator, and as a family man. He never forgets each victim is more than just a new case to solve. He insists that his team give victims the respect they deserve and they work tirelessly to solve each case and to find justice for the victims and their families.

So far, I've read and reviewed every novel and short story collection in this series. In every review, I've recommended the DI Frank Lyle Mystery series and will continue to do so. Though I'm not a self-proclaimed mystery or police procedural fan, Juliet B. Madison has me hooked on this series, largely do to the likability of her characters, the thorough research that goes into each book, and her unique way of presenting each story. I am truly a fan.

Juliet B. Madison's DI Frank Lyle mysteries go from strength to strength. In this one Madison plunges into new depths both in her subject matter and in her character development. The bombing of the pub where DS Fox and DI Redfern are questioning a witness is a frightening episode vividly told. The hate of the perpetrator spurts out viciously and the horror of the experience comes across particularly in DI Redfern's later description of crawling across to try to find the other victims through the darkness and the clouds of smoke. The result, with Thomas Fox hanging between life and death, is of major importance to various other characters, especially Frank Lyle's son James. The psychological effects of this episode on all concerned are examined with great perception and are of major importance in the ongoing stories of the recurring characters in the series.
However, the main theme of the book concerns the escape from prison of paedophile and murderer Bob Kenyon, and the effect his actions have had both on his victims and on their families. Here Madison deals subtly and in great depth with issues which are hard to handle and brings us some moments of real terror and pity. The psychology of the various characters, from Bob Kenyon himself to his victims and to one particular father, as well as Frank Lyle, are examined with skill and penetration. An expert storyteller, Juliet B. Madison winds up her action with a few quiet scenes which nevertheless pose some important moral questions on the subject of murder and revenge.
This is undoubtedly her best book yet and she'll find it hard to top – but with this writer, I'm betting that in her next book, she'll manage it!

This is the first book in the DI Lyle series that I have read. Although it is obvious that there are existing relationships and idiosyncrasies between the characters and their roles that influence the way the story develops, it was easy to read this as a standalone book. There was no sense of lacking the background knowledge in order to understand or enjoy the storyline. The author achieves this with her skilled and very individual style of writing which develops the plot and the characters with ease .
Best Served Cold has some very dark undercurrents written into the well developed plot twists as Juliet B Madison dares to address very controversial subject matter. The mysterious murder of a city councillor puts DI Frank Lyle and his team into action. However, this is just as he discovers that a past adversary, Bob Kenyon a murderer and pedophile, has escaped and is once again a risk to society. However, DI Lyle works his team tirelessly and methodically to ensure justice for the victims and their families.
I would recommend this book, and the series, to any readers who enjoy crime mysteries or police procedural based novels. Juliet B. Madison’s books have a huge appeal to readers of this genre largely due to her detailed and exhaustive research which shines through. Highly recommended.

Another exciting story by Juliet B Madison. As always, the action starts on the first page and the suspense carries through the whole novel. I would especially recommend this book to annyone as the plot centres around a character from a previous novel (Heir to Misfortune), so it is interesting to see what has happened to him since.
