9780007191758: Common Murder (Lindsay Gordon Crime Series, Book 2)

Second novel in the series featuring reporter Lindsay Gordon. When her former lover is accused of murder in a women’s peace camp, Lindsay must bring all of her expertise as an investigative reporter into play.

A protest group hits the headlines when unrest at a women's peace camp explodes into murder. Already on the scene, journalist Lindsay Gordon desperately tries to strike a balance between personal and professional responsibilities. As she peels back the layers of deception surrounding the protest and its opponents, she finds that no one – ratepayer or reporter, policeman or peace woman – seems wholly above suspicion. Then Lindsay uncovers a truth that even she can scarcely believe.

Review:

Praise for Val McDermid:

'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

‘No one rivals Val McDermid's skill at writing truly terrifying thrillers’ Goodhousekeeping.co.uk
