STRANGERS PAUL FINCH
ANONYMOUS, ALONE, AND FEARING FOR HER LIFE.
As PC Lucy Clayburn is about to find out, going undercover is the most dangerous work there is.
But, on the trail of a prolific female serial killer, there’s no other option – and these murders are as brutal as they come.
Lucy must step into the line of fire – a stranger in a criminal underworld that butchers anyone who crosses the line.
And, unknown to Lucy, she’s already treading it.
Wow a lot goes of crimes are set in Strangers. Six foot four, forty something, Michael Haygarth didn’t look much like a man who’d raped and murdered two women. Haygarth was in custody for the rape and attempted murder of the seventy-five year old woman who lived next door to him. Thirty-year old Detective Superintendent Priya Nehwal was one of the most senior investigators in Greater Manchester’s Serious Crime Division, having solved many more high-level offences like murder, rape, robbery and arson. She was something of a poster-child for the women entering the job, especially Asian women. The police admit some murders of four men could be the work of a female serial killer. When the policewomen usually do decoy work, they have to stay sharp, they could be standing among the prospective victims or they could be standing with the killer.Paul Finch is a former cop and journalist.
