Souls of Men

Souls of Men by A.R. Ashworth are a police procedural set in present day London. Detective Inspector Elaine Hope is newly assigned to lead an investigation into the brutal murder of a young girl. Excellent dialogue and plenty of twists keep the pages turning. It’s a very detailed procedural with a station house full of all types of coppers. The heroine is a stalwart, overcoming a tough start and a somewhat sexist work environment.
