An unputdownable serial killer thriller
By Martina Cole
HARD GIRLS: the third novel in the DI Kate Burrows series - the only time Martina Cole has written from the perspective of the Old Bill.
DI Kate Burrows could never keep away for long...
HARD GIRLS is the third book in the DI Kate Burrows series: the only time the 'undisputed queen of crime writing' (Guardian) and Sunday Times bestseller Martina Cole has written from the perspective of the Old Bill.
Kate Burrows might be a retired DCI, but she never could stay away from the law for long. And now Grantley appears to have a new serial killer on its hands, Kate is the only one with the expertise to catch him.
The case bears striking similarities to the Grantley Ripper. But this time the victims are prostitutes, and even hard girls deserve protection and justice.
Kate Burrows caught the Ladykiller. She's just the woman for this job.
The DI Kate Burrows series is dangerously gripping - before you take on HARDGIRLS and DAMAGED, be sure to catch the series' first and second instalments LADYKILLER and BROKEN
