Publisher's Summary

Hard live. Hard Lessons. It's murder on the streets. When a prostitute's body is found lifeless, mutilated and brutally raped, DCI Annie Carr has never seen anything like it and never wants to again. Kate Burrows, retired DCI now consultant, has plenty of experience when it comes to murder - after all she caught the Grantley Ripper and broke the biggest pedophile ring in the South East. She is determined to help put the killer behind bars.

But whoever it is won't be easily caught. And when another girl's body is found, even more horrifically disfigured than the last, it's clear the killer is just warming up... In a ruthless world where everyone's out for themselves, Annie and Kate must dig deep if they hope to catch a callous serial killer who knows no limits and makes no mistakes. For some, prostitution is seriously big business. But how many people will pay the ultimate price? Utterly compelling, Hard Girls is a gripping and disturbing thriller that will have you hooked until the very last page.

Guessed whodunnit before half way through.

As with her other book I guessed who did the murder and why very early on. Disappointing.

I found it too long .....

I like Martina Cole books, but this one was so drawn out, I began to get bored with it, I was glad I stuck with it but I guessed who the culprit was long before the end of the book ...The use of bad language was frequent & often uneccessary (I am no prude, but this was over the top). This however, has not put me off buying more Martina Cole.....

Struggled but persevered

Not one of my favourites I'm afraid. I didn't like Kate's attitude & I guessed who the killer was early on. Annie Aldington was as ever a superb narrator!

excellent trilogy

excellent trilogy enjoyed all the books. I must say though I had guessed early on who the killer was maybe it's just me but it almost seemed to obvious. none the less a very good listen and managed it in 2 days
