Week Seventeen - 35 To Go

Good example of Val McDermid's early work. Using her great imagination, Val McDermid sets the table for her future dark, character-driven British crime fiction. As well as the romantic tension between cranky pants Carol Jordan and the cerebral Tony Hill. This novel is not as gruesome as some of Val McDermid's other books.
