Publisher's Summary

Fifteen years old…brutalised…dumped in a park…throat slashed…. Schoolgirl prostitute Michelle Lucas died in agony and terror, utterly alone. The sight breaks the heart of Sergeant Bev Morriss of West Midlands Police. She thought she was hardened, but gazing at Michelle’s pale, broken body she is consumed by a cold fury. She knows this case is different - this is the one that will push her to the edge. Plunging herself into the seedy heart of Birmingham’s vice-land she struggles to infiltrate the deadly jungle of hookers, evil pimps and violent johns.

But no one will co-operate, no one will break the wall of silence. Is it fear or guilt? When a second victim dies, Bev knows time is running out. If she is to win the trust of the working girls - she has to take the biggest, most dangerous, gamble of her life…out on the streets.

    I don't know about you, but why are there so so so many 5 star reviews. I LOVE books, but so few are 5 star.

    Story
    "Brilliant"

    A wonderful story that makes you feel close to the characters.

    Narrated beautifully too, Frances Barber is a master at playing characters on screen and has delivered her acting skills just brilliantly in this story.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book and shall be buying more by Maureen Carter.

    Story
    "Unsubtle and narration all wrong!"
    What disappointed you about Working Girls?

    I found it to be just too unsubtle. It lacked any complexity. In addition, the narration was close to received pronunciation and street slang delivered in that doesn't work at all. Sadly, I will return it.
