DC Fiona Griffiths 'brutal, freakish and totally original' [SUNDAY TIMES] must take on a new identity when she volunteers to go undercover - something she finds uncannily easy to do...
A woman starved to death. A tech genius with his hands hacked off. The heist of the century.
When DC Fiona Griffiths and her colleagues piece together the clues to several grim crimes, they realise they're staring at one of the world's most daring robberies. Fiona is asked to take on her toughest case yet: will she go undercover to penetrate this criminal gang from within?
When Fiona says yes, she has to give up her old life entirely. She becomes Fiona Grey, a homeless woman struggling to get her life back together again. When the criminal gang adopt her as one of their own, she's totally alone, vulnerable - and dangerous as hell.
Praise for the Fiona Griffiths mystery series:
'With Detective Constable Fiona 'Fi' Griffiths, Harry Bingham...finds a sweet spot in crime fiction...think Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander...[or] Lee Child's Jack Reacher... The writing is terrific' The Boston Globe
'The easiest five stars I've ever awarded a book. Fiona Griffiths is by far the most original detective I've come across' Loretta Milan
'Gritty, compelling...a procedural unlike any other you are likely to read this year' USA Today
'Compelling...a new crime talent to treasure' Daily Mail
'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. This is definitely one my favourite thriller series' Audrey, Top 500 Reviewer

1. Talking to the Dead
2. Love Story, With Murders

** Each Fiona Griffiths thriller can be read as a standalone or in series order **
LOVE STORY, WITH MURDERS boasts what must be the most startling protagonist in modern crime fiction ... Brutal, freakish and totally original - SUNDAY TIMES
Expertly crafted - THE TIMES
With Detective Constable Fiona "Fi" Griffiths, Harry Bingham finds a sweet spot in crime fiction - a female protagonist with stunted emotions, a passion for protecting women (think Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander), outsider status (think Denise Mina's "Paddy" Meehan), sheer guts, and an unstoppable drive to follow her own instincts even when it means breaking every rule in the book (think Lee Childs's Jack Reacher) - BOSTON GLOBE
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
Bingham has gotten inside the mind of his clever, neurotic heroine so well as to make her seem entirely credible ... An interesting, unusual and in some ways even moving crime novel - LITERARY REVIEW
This cleverly plotted police procedural introduces a likeable, maverick detective destined for a bestseller following - CHOICE
DC Fiona Griffiths is ditsy, funny, stubborn and sharp ... Bingham provides a spirited Welsh response to the Scottish domination of British crime fiction - THE TIMES
I'm Harry Bingham. I write crime novels and love it. When I'm not doing that, I run the Writers' Workshop, a literary consultancy. I live in Oxfordshire, England, but I spent a lot of my childhood in Wales, where my crime novels are set. Things I love apart from writing: wild swimming, rock-climbing, walking and dogs. I'm married, have four kids, and I love my life.
