Talking to the Dead by Harry Bingham

Fiona Griffiths is the most junior detective on the South Wales Major Crimes unit. When a mother and her six-year-old daughter are found dead in a squalid Cardiff squat, Fiona performs a minor-seeming task -- sometimes following the rules, sometimes not so much -- and starts to uncover a much wider and more brutal crime.

Moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University. To participate, contact Carole at and put “Wallingford Mystery Book Club” in the subject line.
