Based in Manchester, Brannigan in this case must protect her best friend from losing her child. Now, the best friend is a lesbian, so you may guess that this book covers some new technology.|
The pace is good, the characters and environment clearly drawn, the motivation works, the PI behaves in a logical way, thinks things through, relies on luck, research and contacts, and, frankly, what we have here is a satisfying read.
An excellent series to get your teeth into, and this book is well worth your time. As is McDermid's non-fiction A Suitable Job for a Woman.
