9780007139569: Dead Alone

A fresh, streetwise, frequently funny, frequently nasty, London-based crime series featuring sexy, no-nonsense female DI Jessie Driver

Jessie Driver is a fast-track motorbike-riding female cop with a colourful love-life, an attitude and more than a few resentful male colleagues. When one of them sends her to check out a headless skeleton washed up on the banks of the Thames, Jessie is furious. But this case is far from routine: the bones have been bleached, and floating nearby like a pair of jellyfish are the only source of identification – the victim’s silicone implants.

Soon Jessie is on the trail of a vicious killer who seems to be targeting B-list celebrities – the owner of the implants is the first, but not the only, wannabe to meet a sticky end. Under a media spotlight, Jessie’s given the chance to prove once and for all that she has what it takes to handle a high-profile investigation. But when she becomes dangerously involved with a key suspect, her detached professionalism seems to fly out the window, and soon her own life could be in danger.

Review:

Gay Longworth has written a taut thriller. One for the sisters’ Ireland on Sunday

‘A classy, extremely proficient American debut for Longworth, with solid plotting, believable CID rivalries, and an admirable heroine in Jessie’ Kirkus

From the Back Cover:

They were to pay for being 'almost' famous – with their lives

A bleached, headless skeleton washes up on the bank of the Thames. First reactions are that it's some sort of prank. But bizarre evidence found at the scene points to something much darker, for these are the grim remains of a desperate wannabe actress.

Detective Inspector Jessie Driver, running her first murder enquiry, finds herself in deeper water than she had bargained for. The corpses of other z-list celebrities begin to surface. And they all bear the trademark of one vicious, twisted and talented killer.

So when Jessie becomes dangerously involved with a key suspect, could she be putting her life in the hands of a deadly and merciless stranger…? Take a heart-stopping ride into the dark side of fame in the most suspenseful thriller of the year.
