Summary

When Alison Maxwell, a well-known Glaswegian journalist with an irresistible sexual attraction to both sexes, is found murdered, the police look no further than the owner of the scarf used to strangle her. Lindsay Gordon, however, has other ideas. Maxwell was a serial seductress who kept a secret record of her encounters - including one with Lindsay herself. Recalling the threats that followed the end of the relationship, Lindsay knows all too well the feelings of rage, fear and passion that Alison Maxwell could invoke. 

Soon Lindsay is embroiled in an investigation involving blackmail, stolen government documents and the vested interests of a group of people determined to keep her from finding the truth.

Shame about the narrator

The book was ok but would’ve been so much better with a different narrator! Her voice is very harsh and makes listening difficult

Ditch this narrator!

I have never found a Val McDermid such a struggle - nothing against the Scots accent - that was lovely but as for all the other attempted accents ... well it ranged from dreadful to sheer laughable!

Not up to usual high standard

Bit disappointed, underwhelming story and poor choice of narrator. Word count appears to have been bumped up by the title of the book which underpins the story being mentioned a trillion times.
