A month later, on 12 April, Cath Staincliffe's prequel to series one, Dead to Me, is published by Corgi.
A daughter's death
A teenage girl is found, brutally murdered in her squalid flat.
A mother's love
Her mother is devastated. She gave her child up to the care system, only to lose her again, and is convinced that the drug-pusher boyfriend is to blame.
Two ordinary women, one extraordinary job
DC Rachel Bailey has dragged herself up from a deprived childhood and joined the Manchester Police. Rachel's boss thinks her new recruit has bags of raw talent but straight-laced DC Janet Scott, her reluctant partner, has doubts.
Together Scott and Bailey must hunt a killer, but a life fighting crime can be no life at all...
Cath Staincliffe is no stranger to tv work as she is the creator of the hugely successful Blue Murder series and also novelised two of the episodes.
