Talking to the Dead, Paperback


The first book featuring British detective Fiona Griffiths - one of the most engaging female protagonists in crime thrillers. A young girl is found dead. A prostitute is murdered. And the strangest, youngest detective in the South Wales Major Crimes Unit is about to face the fiercest test of her short career. A woman and her six-year-old daughter are killed with chilling brutality in a dingy flat.

The only clue: the platinum bank card of a long-dead tycoon, found amidst the squalor. DC Griffiths has already proved herself dedicated to the job, but there's another side to her she is less keen to reveal.

Something to do with a mysterious two-year gap in her CV, her strange inability to cry - and a disconcerting familiarity with corpses. Fiona is desperate to put the past behind her but as more gruesome killings follow, the case leads her inexorably back into those dark places in her own mind where another dead girl is waiting to be found ...Watch out for the next title in the Fiona Griffiths crime thriller series A dismembered corpse is found in an old lady's freezer.

Then more body parts start being found all over suburban Cardiff.

Clues that point to a tangled tale of love?Or something darker and more sinister?
