Whoohee, this is a fierce, adrenaline rush of a read, and it packs a huge punch of attitude. PC Lucy Clayburn is desperate to get onto CID, she finds herself undercover and in danger when she joins the Serious Crime Division as they attempt to stop a female serial killer. The prologue, four years before the main story, launches this action-packed blast of a tale, it’s full on from the get go and doesn't let up. Paul Finch is a former police officer and journalist, the mix ensures a fascinating read. He keeps the tension as taut as barbed wire, and has the ability to set every scene blazing in your mind's eye. ‘Strangers’ is highly entertaining, exciting, and I gobbled this up in one thrilling charge of a read. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Strangers by Paul Finch

From the No.1 bestselling author of Hunted and Stalkers, comes an even darker crime thriller – and a standout new heroine that will leave fans of M. J. Alridge and Rachel Abbott gasping for more.

As PC Lucy Clayburn is about to find out, going undercover is the most dangerous work there is.

But, on the trail of a prolific female serial killer, there’s no other option – and these murders are as brutal as they come. Lucy must step into the line of fire – a stranger in a criminal underworld that butchers anyone who crosses the line.

And, unknown to Lucy, she’s already treading that line. . .
