The strange death of Fiona Griffiths

Bingham, Harry, 1967- author

When DC Fiona Griffiths says 'yes' to her policeman boyfriend, it's an affirmation that she wants finally to put her psychological breakdown behind her. But she still can't resist the challenge of an undercover policing course, and finding it remarkably easy to assume a new identity, she comes top of the class. So when an ingenious payroll fraud starts to look like the tip of a huge criminal iceberg, she is selected to infiltrate the fraudsters' operation. Posing as a meek former payroll clerk now forced to work as a cleaner, she becomes Fiona Grey, hoping the criminals will try and recruit her - knowing that if they discover her real identity, she's dead meat

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

||Intriguing and compelling - I love Fiona Griffiths||In a word - brilliant. One of the most enjoyable crime novels I've read in a while||Compelling and claustrophic, Without a doubt, Fiona Griffiths is one of crime's most memorable heroines||One of the most interesting and complicated protagonists in current UK crime fiction. Truly unforgettable||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||Gripping...Fiona Griffiths kept me hooked to the last page and left me hungry for more||Exceptional ... Absorbing ... Fiona's narrative sears the pages.
KIRKUS REVIEWS||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. I couldn't put it down. This is definitely one of my very favorite thriller series. I love this character and I hope I have the chance to read many more. Harry Bingham is a genius and one hell of a writer.
Audrey, Top 500 Reviewer||Compelling ... a new crime talent to treasure
DAILY MAIL||Very exciting ... well informed and well written. Read this novel.
Literary Review||Gritty, compelling ... a [police] procedural unlike any other you are likely to read this year.
