    The body of a young woman is found on the streets of East London, in the shadow of the City's gleaming towers. No ID on her, just hard-earned cash. But there is no doubting the ferocity of the attack. DI Simon Fenchurch takes charge but, as his team tries to identify her and piece together her murder, they're faced with cruel indifference at every turn - nobody cares about yet another dead prostitute.

    A waste of time

    The lead detective is plagued by problems with acid reflux and, in tense moments, hearing drums in his head. These issues are referred to constantly. ..Show More »

    On a busy London street, a young woman is attacked in broad daylight and left bleeding to death on the pavement. Among the eyewitnesses are DI Simon Fenchurch and his wife.

The case should be closed but something feels off...Was this really just about a smartphone?

    The lead cop is not very bright and not very likeable. He is plagued--did we really need to know it?--with acid reflux and, endlessly, by a drumming i..Show More »

    Good story but get another narrator

    This is not the story for you if you have a problem with the term "christ" being used as sign of irritation (e.g., christ on..Show More »
