songs by dead girls
A deadly Virus. A missing academic with a head full of state secrets. A prostitute on the run. And a drug baron who needs a favour.
All in a day's work for the North Edinburgh Health Enforcement Team.
Songs by Dead Girls is the second installment of The Health of Strangers series, published by Sandstone Press.
the health of strangers
Nobody likes the North Edinburgh Health Enforcement Team, least of all the people who work for it. An uneasy mix of seconded Police and health service staff, Mona, Bernard and their colleagues stem the spread of the Virus, a mutant strain of influenza, by tracking down people who have missed their monthly health check.
Now two young divinity students are missing, after going drinking in a bikers’ bar. Mona and Bernard need to fight their way through an investigation involving cults, late night raves, and the mysterious involvement of overseas governments to find the girls - before anyone else does.
