Val McDermid grew up in Kirkcaldy on the east coast of Scotland, 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. Now a full-time writer, she divides her time between Manchester and Northumberland.From Booklist:
Lesbian reporter Lindsay Gordon goes to cover the long protest of a cruise missile base by a British women's peace encampment and finds there an attractive ex-lover who is accused of murder, not to mention routine assaults and an official cover-up. Although the book's plot is sometimes contrived and the pacing is uneven, Gordon is a gutsy heroine committed to action, righting wrongs, and solving mysteries who sometimes takes large helpings of abuse and plays both sides of the allegiance fence in order to succeed. As she battles to solve the problems of a monogamous relationship against a background of institutionalized secrecy, lies, and brutality, the author gives readers a strong sense of contemporary England, too.
