Summary

A beautiful model's death uncovers an ugly conspiracy stretching all the way to Westminster in Rosie Gilmour's darkest case to date. 
When Scots supermodel Bella Mason plunges to her death from the roof of a glitzy Madrid hotel, everyone assumes it was suicide. Except that one person saw exactly what happened to Bella that night, and she definitely didn't jump. But Millie Chambers has no one she can tell - an alcoholic and now sectioned by her bullying politician husband, who would believe her? And that's not all Millie knows. Being close to the heart of Westminster power can lead to discovering some awful secrets....
Back in Glasgow, Rosie's research into Bella's life leads to her brother. Dan is now a homeless heroin addict, but what he reveals about Bella's early life is electrifying: organised sexual abuse in care homes across Glasgow. Bella had tracked him down so that they could tell the world their story. And now she's dead.
As Rosie's drive to expose the truth leads her closer to Millie and the shameful secrets she has kept for so many years, it becomes clear that what she's about to discover could prove fatal: a web of sexual abuse linking powerful figures across the nation, and the rot at the very heart of the British Establishment....

Superb

I really love the characters in this series, The story is excellent and I like the fact that the main characters are not nasty or spiteful, they have genuine friendships - which is really more like life, I get fed up with all the backstabbing obnoxious behaviour in some current novels.
This doesn't get in the way of a good story, and a tense drama. I am not thrilled by the bad language - but even that is mainly used by the roughest characters so is tolerable. To have the story told by the journalist looking for a scoop is an interesting angle.

I have enjoyed all of this series and look forward to the next in line.

My only quibble is that some of the accents - (the Irish one particularly), are VERY odd!
