Bleed Like Me A Scott & Bailey Novel by Cath Staincliffe
  

Lovereading view...

You may read this second Scott and Bailey, Manchester-based, police procedural novel because you are a fan of the TV series and this and its predecessor, Dead to Me, are dubbed prequels to the series but I would urge you to read them as crime novels despite the TV involvement for Staincliffe is an ace crime author in her own right. She is very good. Try Witness or Split Second from her back catalogue, poignant, thought-provoking crime at its best.

If you like Cath Staincliffe you might also like to read books by Denise Mina, Morag Joss and Tess Gerristsen.
