Product description


Gritty, literate, and engaging, NO GOOD DEED is an exceptional achievement. Manda Scott is a fine writer, with a great future - Julia Wallis Martin

'Uncompromising...brilliantly depicted' Gemma O'Connor

Compulsive reading from page one to the shattering conclusion...Manda Scott's writing is simply beautiful - Denise Mina

Dark, taut and edgy, Manda Scott's debut thriller exerts an emotional grip that tightens to a twisting stranglehold. There's not a word wasted in this unflinching novel, which still manages to demonstrate the profound power of love. It's a joy to read something so intelligent, so direct and so beautifully crafted - Val McDermid

Manda Scott picks us up by the scruff of the neck, drags us kicking and bumping along the rough side of life, then makes us fall in love with her characters along the way. Wow, - Laurie R. King

,one of Britain's most important crime writers... the prose is sparse but descriptive and the plot is well handled... consistently entertaining' 2/2 - The Times

delivers humane characters and supercriminals, romance without sentimentality, and adventures without easy answers. Orla McLeod's American debut ensures that she will take her place in the top ranks of fictional female detectives - Publishers Weekly
