Review:

This mystery, part of the popular Lindsay Gordon series, is set in Glasgow, Scotland. Author Val McDermid, who grew up in a Scottish mining community, captures the sharp, colorful dialects of characters who live in newly renovated yuppie flats, low rent dives, and everything in between. On her way to solve the mystery of one friend's murder and another's conviction for the same, scrappy, soft-hearted journalist Lindsay Gordon learns a thing or two she didn't expect--or want-- to learn about the complications of lesbian love.

About the Author:

Val McDermid grew up in a Scottish mining community 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 lives in South Manchester.
