Former BBC Newsnight presenter Maureen has worked extensively in newspapers, radio and television She still freelances in the business, when she s not busy novel writing As a journalist she s worked closely with the police, covering countless crime stories, including several murders She s also interviewed victims and seen villains sent downMaureen was inspired to write Working Girls by a police pilot scheme to treat younger prostitutes as victims rather than criminals It set me thinking about women on the game, she says What made a girl risk her health, and her life, night after night What, if any, choice did she have I wondered could I combine appealing characters from this largely ignored section of society with a measure of social comment and produce an engaging and entertaining crime novel.

    Love the character Bev but found the constant addition of mate to her dialogue very irritating Also found the villain quite predictable and yet another plot where the heroine s life and career is worse at the end than the beginning is becoming tedious. Will read onebefore reluctantly giving up on the series..
