Hostage to Murder
by Val McDermid
Tuesday, December 30, 2003
One of my favourite series has come out of retirement for what feels like a farewell encore but I hope it isn’t. It’s curiously published by “V. L. McDermid” rather than the regular “Val” which looked like some strange publishing industry shennanigans to me but actually comes down to a really boring bit of accounting.
This is more of a thriller than the previous Lindsay Gordon stories with Lindsay back in Glasgow but chasing off to St Petersburg after a kidnapped child. Excellent entertainment.
