HARRY BINGHAM Untitled
The fifth darkly brilliant novel featuring crime fiction’s most compelling heroine, DC Fiona Griffiths. Critics have compared her to Stieg Larsson’s Lisbeth Salander, but Fiona Griffiths is an utterly unique character. Haunted by fears of recurring mental breakdown, obsessed with discovering her real parentage and curiously comfortable with corpses, she makes an unusual but intuitive detective. Faced with a bizarre series of crimes that link the kidnapping of an oligarch’s daughter with the medieval practices of a remote monastery, Fiona is plunged into a conspiracy that feeds into her darkest fears. ‘Bingham provides a spirited Welsh response to the Scottish domination of British crime fiction’ Marcel Berlins The Times Harry Bingham is the author of the critically acclaimed Fiona Griffiths novels Talking to the Dead, Love Story, With Murders, The Strange Death of Fiona Griffiths and This Thing of Darkness. He also runs The Writers Workshop, an editorial consultancy for first-time writers, and organises the York Festival of Writing.
