Publisher's Summary

When DC Fiona Griffiths says 'yes' to her policeman boyfriend, it's an affirmation that she wants finally to put her psychological breakdown behind her, and become a resident of 'Planet Normal' like everybody else. But she still can't resist the challenge of an undercover policing course, and finding it remarkably easy to assume a new identity, she comes top of the class. So when an ingenious payroll fraud starts to look like the tip of a huge criminal iceberg, Fiona is selected to infiltrate the fraudsters' operation.

Posing as a meek former payroll clerk now forced to work as a cleaner, Fiona Griffiths becomes Fiona Grey, hoping the criminals will try and recruit her - knowing that if they discover her real identity, she's dead meat. But as Fiona penetrates deeper into their operation, coming closer to identifying the mastermind behind it, she faces another, even more frightening danger - that her always fragile grip on her sense of self has now been lost and she may never find her way back. Read by Siriol Jenkins.

Ice Cool

Fiona seems to be made of steel. In a dangerous undercover situation she manages to negotiate all the pitfalls despite the dire consequences if there is one mis-step in her thinking.

It almost takes nerves of steel to listen to this story. Siriol Jenkins gives another excellent narrative.

The creation of an excellent believable character

This is not the first book to feature police detective Fiona Griffiths, with her strange affinity with the dead, but the character is really consolidated here.

The author manages to convey her feelings and emotions and conflicts without them subsuming the plot of an undercover assignment for Fiona. I would say that the novel's main theme is conflict in its different forms, and I'm not sure that Fiona comes off best.

Very much a page turner, and I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series to see how the character is developed further, and what becomes of her.

Too much padding out

loved it at first but got a bit frustrated by pointless descriptive parts. I wanted it to move along a bit more quickly. It feels as if it may have been written with a film in mind. Felt a bit narrow at the end - no characters left and no twist.

Fiona Griffiths a woman we can relate to

Another fantastic story, which is so well read, that I was gripped from the start.
Fiona has her demons, but she is so likeable, and relatable, you can’t help but like her wacky ways.
