A woman starved to death. A tech genius with his hands hacked off. The heist of the century.
When DC Fiona Griffiths and her colleagues piece together the clues to several grim crimes, they realise they're staring at one of the world's most daring robberies. Fiona is asked to take on her toughest case yet: will she go undercover to penetrate this criminal gang from within?
When Fiona says yes, she has to give up her old life entirely. She becomes Fiona Grey, a homeless woman struggling to get her life back together again. When the criminal gang adopt her as one of their own, she's totally alone, vulnerable - and dangerous as hell.
Praise for the Fiona Griffiths mystery series:
'With Detective Constable Fiona 'Fi' Griffiths, Harry Bingham...finds a sweet spot in crime fiction...think Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander...[or] Lee Child's Jack Reacher... The writing is terrific' The Boston Globe
'The easiest five stars I've ever awarded a book. Fiona Griffiths is by far the most original detective I've come across' Loretta Milan
'Gritty, compelling...a procedural unlike any other you are likely to read this year' USA Today
'Compelling...a new crime talent to treasure' Daily Mail
'Fiona Griffiths may be the most fascinating protagonist in fiction. She is similar to Lisbeth Salander, an intelligent but profoundly damaged young woman, but Fiona is less hostile and more curious, sort of a good guy sociopath. This is definitely one my favourite thriller series' Audrey, Top 500 Reviewer

** Each Fiona Griffiths thriller can be read as a standalone or in series order **
A payroll-scam investigation drives Bingham's suspenseful third police thriller featuring Welsh Det. Constable Fiona Griffiths (after 2013's Love Story, with Murders). The police have learned that a furniture superstore has been tricked into paying thousands of pounds to two women who didn't actually work for the business. When Fiona tries to track down the phantom workers, she finds that one, the reclusive Hayley Morgan, has died under suspicious circumstances: someone drained Morgan's bank account, and her recluse's phone and electricity were cut off, leaving her to die. The inquiry into the fraud case goes nowhere, until Fiona's bosses ask her to go undercover as a cleaning woman as a way of getting at the white-collar criminals running the scheme. For Fiona, living as a different person constitutes her second "strange death" after her traumatic abandonment as a child left her believing she was dead for two years. Fans of plucky, independent heroines will be pleased. (BookLife)
