Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The first in this series, Talking to the Dead, introduced us to a most unusual police detective, Fiona Griffiths, who suffers from Cotard’s Syndrome and hides a dramatic past which will no doubt be revealed over the series. Certainly a large chunk comes here as she searches for her real parents. Fiona is weird … delightfully so and sees the world at a slightly different angle to most people. It is her weirdness that makes these books stand out, and her first-person narrative that draws us in. They are Welsh-based which is lovely, full of plot which races along with lots of offshoots and lots left open for the next one. What a great book but I must urge you to read the first which is even better.

If you like Harry Bingham you might also like to read books by Penny Vincenzi, Stuart McBride and Robert Ryan.

Synopsis

Love Story, with Murders by Harry Bingham

Late October, Cardiff. A human leg is discovered in a woman's freezer. The hunt for the rest of the corpse soon turns up body parts in kitchens, garages and potting sheds. The police conclude that the victim was a teenage girl killed some ten years earlier. But then other body parts start appearing, this time discarded carelessly, shortly after the victim - a man - was killed. Investigating the double crime draws DC Fiona Griffiths into a web of obsession, money, deceit - and acute personal danger. Which is exactly where she likes to be: in the middle of a gruesome puzzle with a pitch-black secret at its heart.

Reviews

This compelling crime novel... amply proves the freshness and flair that he [Bingham] has brought to the police procedural. Written with unexpected warmth and wry observation, it brings its gruesome story to life without turning the stomach. ..Surprisingly delicate, it weaves a sinuous, seductive spell and confirms we have a new crime talent to treasure. - DAILY MAIL

They say there is nothing new under the sun... I have to say that in a lifetime of reading crime fiction I have never come across anyone quite like Fiona Griffiths... Read this book. Enjoy every syllable. Hold your breath, and tick off the weeks until the next one. - CRIME FICTION LOVER

There is a complex and very clever double mystery here, and what makes the story unique is the parallel unraveling of Fiona's own mystery, and it's her voice, established precisely in the first book but given even freer rein here, that makes it so compelling. - TANGLED WEB

Superbly compulsive! - PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH
