The Last Girl, by Jane Casey

A woman and her daughter are viciously murdered, and DC Maeve Kerrigan is assigned to the case with DI Rubs-Everyone-the-Wrong-Way Derwent.  Everyone else, including Superintendent Godley, is knee-deep in investigating a series of gang killings.  The suspects include Philip Kennford, a criminal barrister and a philanderer; Lydia, his daughter and the twin of the murdered teen; and Savannah, a supermodel, who is Kennford's daughter by another woman.  Something fishy is going on with Godley, and Maeve is being tormented by a stalker.  The plotting is so tight, my enjoyment of the book wasn't reduced by the extraordinary length of time it took me to finish.
