Val McDermid is a really, really good writer. I've read most of her books including another Karen Pirie book. This book is just a big disappointment. Horrible.

First book I have read by this author. I really liked it. I liked the cold case aspect. I liked the forensics and detective work. I liked the characters and look forward to reading the other books in this series.

This is the first Val McDermid book I’ve read. I look forward to reading more books with Scottish Detective Karen Pirie as the main character. I love books with multi-dimensional characters and they abound in this book.

Not a perfect mystery, but close. Delicious writing. Mostly unexpected twists and turns in plot. Humanist themes.

And, last but not least—satisfying, intelligent and well-modulated humor.

A really well thought-ought story-line where everything is closely interwoven and must be unravelled, thread by thread..Val McDermid can be relied on to explore all the ramifications of interpersonal relationships.Much enjoyed
