Praise for gripping, atmosphere Fiona Griffiths crime thriller series:
Chilling, atmospheric and so gripping it hurts. You won't read a better crime novel this year(MARK EDWARDS)
Intriguing and compelling - I love Fiona Griffiths (SHARON BOLTON)
In a word - brilliant. One of the most enjoyable crime novels I've read in a while (JAMES OSWALD)
Compelling and claustrophic, Without a doubt, Fiona Griffiths is one of crime's most memorable heroines (SARAH HILARY)
One of the most interesting and complicated protagonists in current UK crime fiction. Truly unforgettable (MICK HERRON)
Fiona Griffiths is one of the most unusual and engaging characters in British crime fiction. Those who haven't yet encountered Fiona will be drawn into a beautifully crafted world (SINEAD CROWLEY)
Gripping...Fiona Griffiths kept me hooked to the last page and left me hungry for more (RACHEL ABBOTT)
This is on one level an orthodox, if expertly written, police procedural. But the character of Fiona lifts it to an altogether different, extraordinary level. She is childlike, brilliant, courageous and utterly loopy all at the same time - as well as devastatingly real and human and alone...She'll haunt you long after you finish this book, and send you scurrying to find what else Bingham has written. (YORK PRESS)
Fresh and compelling. The best thing coming out of this gem of a crime story is the promise of another (NY DAILY NEWS)
Compelling...a new crime talent to treasure (DAILY MAIL)
The first novel in the powerful Fiona Griffiths mystery series - a detective who will break every rule in the book to crack her case.See all Product description

Harry Bingham has found himself a heroine worth working with. At times the book was in danger of tipping over into her world, and boring the reader by going on too long about the way she feels, but then something happens and it is back on course, that being Fiona finding her muddled way through the complex and highly unpleasant case she is confronted with. What is outstanding is her reaction to her first corpse. So many books have the detective completely detached from finding a body. (Morse never is... and on that topic, I liked the reference to Morse, shows that the great detective is still right up front in the detecting world!)
Buy with confidence. It's a good book.
It's hard to write something original in this review, so imagine the work and talent that went into this book, because it's such an original and it's so well written. This author is destined to be a major force in English crime writing, unless you already rate him a such, in which case it's been my misfortune to have missed his debut and the reception that went with it!
A superb creation, I've read two in the series, plus two novellas, and I'm hooked. I shall be buying the rest, one by one and look forward to more.
Despite dreadful odds Fiona wins through, her survival aided by her strange mentor who is a man of extreme violence and as much a loner as Fiona is, yet always willing to give Fiona guidance when it comes to survival.
For me this was a most enjoyable book, beautifully written, and yes, she does talk to dead bodies!.
