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.

Great read

Enjoyed this book very much
I thought I had the suspect discovered early on
Love the twist in the plot though.

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.....

What a fantastic series

All the books brilliantly written .. if you are easily offended by a lot of unpleasant language , then not for you .. But you have to realise , so much of this series has been with the ‘ gangs and convicts ‘ so the language used in the boom is the type they wound of been saying .
Narration. Was AMAZING and definitely have the boobs that realistic feel .. Will miss these characters .. x

Not recommended

I was very disappointed by this book. It had no story and was extremely repetitive and predictable. Definately the worst book I have heard from Martina Cole. The narration by Annie Aldington was great as always, but for once that didn't help.

Guessed whodunnit before half way through.

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