The Girl Who Broke The Rules by Marnie Riches

Blurb:

When the mutilated bodies of two sex-workers are found in Amsterdam, Chief Inspector van den Bergen must find a brutal murderer before the red-light-district erupts into panic.

Georgina McKenzie is conducting research into pornography among the UK’s most violent sex-offenders but once van den Bergen calls on her criminology expertise, she is only too happy to come running.

The rising death toll forces George and van den Bergen to navigate the labyrinthine worlds of Soho strip-club sleaze and trans-national human trafficking.

Wayward Pines Down To Last 2 Episodes

I have been following Wayward Pines since it premiered in mid-May this year. I must disclose that I have not read the book by Blake Crouch, but I’m well aware of its popularity and cult-like following. I love the show so much that I’m willing to forgive M. Night Shyamalan for all the non-Sixth Sense movies he made in the past.
