Seen on Telly and still enjoyed it
I loved listening to this book, it really brought back the characters and although I had seen the story on the tv series, it was still worth listening too for the extra detail, especially about the private lives of the women and their characters.
The story was very interesting - I love books that are not full of action, but psychologically gripping, and this had lots of drama that didn't rely on cars, guns and violence, thank goodness.
The contrast between the professional lives of the detectives and their often chaotic private lives I enjoyed the most. Well worth listening too.
I do find it difficult to listen to some voices over a long period of time, but this reader was excellent, if occasionally her accent slipped, which is why I gave her only 4 instead of 5 stars!

A really good listen from start to finish. Very detailed in the police procedure but the story revolves around the lives of three woman working for the Manchester Met Police and how they deal with the ups and downs of their daily lives whilst remaining (mostly) professional and strong in their careers in what is a predominately male environment. Would definitely recommend this follow up to Cath Staincliffe's first Scott and Bailey novel, Dead to Me. Well read by Katy Carmichael.
