Meanwhile her friend and self-defence trainer, Dennis, finds himself under arrest after a the body is found in a shop-squat he has been running. Convinced of Dennis’s innocence, despite his long track record of organised crime across the Manchester gangland, Kate undertakes to investigate to try to clear him. And it has started snowing heavily!
As always with Val McDermid, the plot is perfectly plausible and well-constructed, and the characters are utterly believable. She uses the plot to satirise the world of soap operas, and draws on her own experiences as a journalist to expose the traffic in leaked plotlines and cast members’ secrets. Brannigan is a great character: independent and tough, yet also capable of great emotional insight. Without the gory serial murders that characterise McDermid’s later works, this is a traditional detective story – well planned and well written.
Much less gory than some of her work, it is a really good private investigator becomes involved with a soap star tale, that is entertaining and with a good dose of humour.
Threats to one of the stars of the huge hit soap “Northeners” a leaking of gossip and story lines to the media, and...........murder !
This is the first Kate Brannigan, (Private Detective ), that I have tried, a good old fashioned and entertaining story, in a series that I shall be reading more of in the near future. Highly recommended.
