Dead to Me Publisher's Summary

A daughter's death. A teenage girl is found, brutally murdered in her squalid flat. A mother's love. Her mother is devastated. She gave her child up to the care system, only to lose her again, and is convinced that the drug-pusher boyfriend is to blame. Two ordinary women, one extraordinary job.

    Detective Constable Janet Scott is subtle and reliable, a diplomatic thinker with a wry sense of humor. She’s put in the time and seen it all, but has no desire for the boss’s job - she loves her own too much. Rachel Bailey couldn’t be more different - she’s energetic, impulsive, and ambitious, and has just been transferred to the Manchester murder squad.
