Praise for Val McDermid:'Val McDermid is an inspiration.' Herald'A well-pitched and topical mystery.' Sunday Times'McDermid's snappy, often comic, prose keeps the story humming.' Publishers Weekly`The real mistress of psychological gripping thrillers; no one can plot or tell a story like she can' Daily Express`The Queen of Crime reigns' Independent`McDermid remains unrivalled . . . Brilliant' Observer`With the deaths of PD James and Ruth Rendell, Val McDermid is the obvious successor as Britain's Queen of Crime. For me, she has already held that title for many years.' The Times`McDermid still writes with the telltale verve that's won her the accolade queen of psychological thrillers' Guardian`No one rivals Val McDermid's skill at writing truly terrifying thrillers' Goodhousekeeping.co.uk`Move over V.I.
