Critic Reviews

"A satisfying range of villains, Manchester and its environs turn deeply sinister and Brannigan toughs and wisecracks her way to a solution." (The Times)

Funny down to earth PI

I’m enjoying this series, there is suspense but also some funny passages. It’s refreshing to have a protagonist who is not suffering from a miserable home life. And to read about a female protagonist who is neither a damsel in distress nor a Kill Bill Type fighter.

Clever scam!<br />

love that Val writes about local places and I am growing to like Kate more in this book. The scam s a very realistic sort of scam which makes it more plausible.

Love this series

I have just got into the Kate Brannigan series having listened to a few other Of Val McDermid’s books. Whilst I thoroughly enjoy all her books are find that all are read so brilliantly this one was a little tricky to get on top of all the characters - I got there in the end but I know if I’d been reading an actual book I would have been turning back the pages to catch up which character had done what with who!
