‘Tough, funny and intensely topical. McDermid stands out as one of the few contemporary writers actually nourished by the here and now’
‘Fast, fluently told story: Kate is as tough as Warshawski but less hung up on political correctness’
‘Kate Brannigan is wonderful’
Val McDermid grew up in a Scottish mining community and then read English at Oxford. She was a journalist for sixteen years, spending the last three as Northern Bureau Chief of a national Sunday tabloid. She is now a full-time writer and divides her time between Cheshire and Northumberland.
