Nights of passion and revenge in St Petersburg; a bingo-hall tyrant trapped by masked intruders; the sleazy flipside of the international publishing scene; an author succumbing to the deadly lure of cyberspace... STRANDED demonstrates, yet again, the scope of Val McDermid's imagination, her versatility as a stylist and her immense powers as a storyteller. As well as McDermid's popular series character, private eye Kate Brannigan, this diverse collection contains different narrative voices, from different continents and from an eclectic range of backgrounds.

About the Author:

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 AudioFile:

McDermid's series of unrelated short stories has its strengths and weaknesses. Furthermore, the audio format often spotlights the unevenness of the genre. The listener hopes for more during one of the better efforts and sighs with relief when a less interesting tale is concluded. Fortunately, STRANDED features far more hopes than sighs, as do the performances of Vari Sylvester and Gordon Griffin, who take turns reading. Sylvester's style is more compelling and more intense. On the other hand, Griffin reads with a more understated style that allows McDermid's words to shine. While not a classic, STRANDED almost certainly will have a few stories that appeal to almost every listener. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Book Description Flambard Press, Londion, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. A new book and D.J. that is unread and unmarked. A special signed edition #62 of 325. Stranded demonstrates yet again the scope of Val McDermid's imagination, her versatility as a stylist and her immense powers as a storyteller. As well as McDermid's popular series character, private eye Kate Brannigan, this diverse collection contains narrative voices, both female and male, from different continents and an eclectic range of backgrounds. McDermid has chosen the short-story form to probe not only the motivations of the criminal underworld but also the nature of crime itself, all the time playing with crime-writing and pushing it to its limits. There are even occasions where McDermid defies the genre altogether and the collection is framed by two stories that show a writer exploring fresh territory. Grit, sex, glamour, intrigue and unexpected turns: Stranded is a showcase of trademark McDermid that will strike a few surprising chords amongst even her most devoted readers. Signed by Author(s).
