The Strange Death of Fiona Griffiths

Harry Bingham. Sheep Street, $4.99 e-book (391p) ASIN B00Q6QOCQK

A payroll-scam investigation drives Bingham’s suspenseful third police thriller featuring Welsh Det. Constable Fiona Griffiths (after 2013’s Love Story, with Murders). The police have learned that a furniture superstore has been tricked into paying thousands of pounds to two women who didn’t actually work for the business. When Fiona tries to track down the phantom workers, she finds that one, the reclusive Hayley Morgan, has died under suspicious circumstances: someone drained Morgan’s bank account, and her recluse’s phone and electricity were cut off, leaving her to die. The inquiry into the fraud case goes nowhere, until Fiona’s bosses ask her to go undercover as a cleaning woman as a way of getting at the white-collar criminals running the scheme. For Fiona, living as a different person constitutes her second “strange death” after her traumatic abandonment as a child left her believing she was dead for two years. Fans of plucky, independent heroines will be pleased. [em](BookLife) [/em]
