A daughter's death

A teenage girl is found brutally murdered in her squalid flat.

A mother's love

Her mother is devastated. She gave her child up to the care system, only to lose her again, and is convinced that the low-life boyfriend is to blame.

Two ordinary women, one extraordinary job

DC Rachel Bailey has dragged herself up from a deprived childhood and joined the Manchester Police. Rachel's boss thinks her new recruit has bags of raw talent but straight-laced DC Janet Scott, her reluctant partner, has her doubts.

Together Scott and Bailey must hunt a killer, but a life fighting crime can be no life at all...

This is the prequel to the TV series which I love, hope this is as good :o)

Journal Entry 2 by wingPlum-crazywing at Brighouse, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Monday, August 14, 2017
As I'm a huge fan of the TV series & as I used to enjoy Cath Staincliffe's Sal Kilkenny series I was expecting to enjoy this prequel......& I was not disappointed. For fans of the series it gives some good background into how the three women became the trio of strong female detectives that we know & love.

As the story unfolded, I could see & hear the characters in my mind as clearly as watching an episode. The dialogue & dialect was spot on & overall the story was fast-paced & gritty with nice touches of humour.

I thoroughly enjoyed it but admit to being a little biased :o)
Would love to hear thoughts on it from someone who hasn't watched the series.
