A violent rapist is attacking women, leaving them for dead on south London streets. When young police woman Maeve Kerrigan responds to a domestic disturbance, she's horrified to stumble across the latest victim. But as a new recruit - and a female to boot - she'll have to face down not only her own nerves but rampant sexism from her colleagues if she wants to be taken seriously enough to even assist on the case.

I've listened to all the Mauve Kerrigan books which I enjoyed. I picked this up because it was half price. Basically, it was a waste of time. Not sure why the author bothered.
Excellent portrayal of the struggle involved with being a minority (female) in a career dominated by males. Ignore naysayers, I am glad I did...Solid performance and short story of a new police officer trying to excel.
The story is latter day Nancy Drew with some high school petting thrown in. The narrator reminded me of Bette Davis with her clipped words and what is apparently her idea of a posh British accent. The the most egregious transgression occurred when she was speaking dialogue for a visiting higher echelon police officer with celebrity status and rather dashing physical attributes. She made him sound like an octagenarian pensioner with longstanding COPD. Weak novel, weak narrator.
Love books, listen to 3-4 books a week, thriller and true crimes favorite.
Dull story, narrative was awful, no thrills, no suspense at all.
For a short read, it fell short of any genres
