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.

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.....

Excellent narrating

Interesting story lines, pimps, prostitutes and a serial killer. At times you feel like you're by Kate's side working the case.

Predicted the killer

Great book but predicted the serial killer early on. Was good to have Kate and Patrick back again though :)

Not as good as others in this series

The way ageing was repeatably voiced is a purely negative event was disappointing & made me less interested in these characters for their vapid viewpoint! My main issue was that sadly the "Who done it?" element of this book was plain to see very early in the book.

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!

Guessed whodunnit before half way through.

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