Sharp, streetwise and totally engaging, Good Bad Woman is a slice of London life with a twist, and the first in a new series featuring the irresistible Frankie Richmond Frankie Richmond is a London barrister long on attitude and short on lucrative work. Her chaotic private life interrupts her professional one far too often but never so dangerously as when she agrees to defend an old friend. A routine appearance at a magistrate’s court catapults Frankie into a nightmare from which she wakes up to find herself arrested – for murder. The police would love to see her go down so Frankie sets out to solve the case herself – while trying to revive her flagging career, disentangle her mercurial friendships and meet the woman of her dreams. As she steps up her search for the killer – and a particularly elusive Sir Douglas Quintet track – Frankie’s talent for sowing confusion is given full rein, particularly when clearing her name involves exposing some unsavoury truths about those closest to her.
