A disappointing book with a promising beginning that became pedestrian and ended abruptly. A weak addition . If it is the last one to such a strong and exciting series it has ended with a whimper unfortunately.

Dark Lesbian Romance

What a spectacular drop in form for the almost always excellent McDermid. This book is spectacularly boring. Peopled almost entirely by 2 D characters you couldn't really give a hoot about. I get that Val is a lesbian but to have a book almost entirely populated by lesbians makes, it more of a vanity project for the author in creating her own world view. This is not really crime fiction or a thriller but should be more accurately described as Lesbian fiction

Good Story Poor Narration

Good story that was spoiled for me by the narration, the 'different' voices were more suited to a pantomine rather than a thriller.
