Review

‘Stunningly exciting, horrifyingly good’
Ruth Rendell

‘This book has a sense of gravitas and intelligence utterly beyond lesser writers in the field’
Ian Rankin

Sunday Times (of The Wire in the Blood)

From the Back Cover

The new Kate Brannigan novel from Gold-Dagger-winner Val McDermid, the writer whose serial killer novels have made her “ Manchester’s answer to Thomas Harris” (' Guardian').

Bodyguarding had never made it to Manchester PI Kate Brannigan’s wish list. But somebody’s got to pay the bills at Brannigan and Co, and if the only earner on offer is playing nursemaid t a paranoid soap star, the fast talking, computer-loving white-collar crime expert has to swallow her pride and slip into something more glam than her Thai boxing kit.

Soon, however, offstage dramas overshadow the fictional storylines, culminating in the unscripted murder of the self styled ‘Seer to the Stars’ and Kate finds herself with more questions than answers. What’s more, her tame hacker has found virtual love, her process server keeps getting arrested, and the ever-reliable Dennis has had the temerity to get himself charged with murder.

Nobody told her there’d be days like these.
