Praise for V. L. McDermid.

Praise for V. If you haven’t discovered this award-winning trailblazer in lesbian detective fiction you’re missing out on a good one. Katherine V. Forrest. There is no one in contemporary crime fiction who has managed to combined the visceral and the humane as well as Val McDermid.

Hostage To Murder book. 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.

Hostage to Murder, the long-awaited sixth Lindsay Gordon mystery, is a lightning-paced story spliced with crackling action and an intense emotional dimension. Spraining an ankle is rarely a stroke of luck, but for Lindsay Gordon, jobless in Glasgow, the injury is her introduction to young freelance journalist Rory McLaren and the opening of a new chapter in her life. Rory's invitation to work alongside her in her booth at the Cafe Virginia is irresistible.

Val McDermid is supposed to be sardonic but it sure doesn't show in this novel. It is competently written but how anyone could manage to care about any of the characters is difficult to imagine. Lindsay runs around with everyone spilling their guts to her for no particular reason and behaves at best stupidly when the pieces fall into place. On the whole, I'd describe "Common Murder" as a very quick and easy read - though McDermid's done much better than this. There's nothing special or memorable about the storyline and there's nothing particularly engaging about the characters.

Michael folded his knife shut. ?˜Weâ?™ll manage,â?™ he said. Patrick opened his desk drawer and took out a brown envelope. ?˜I donâ?™t want you using any of our people over there, so youâ?™ll need a float. More by V.

The long-awaited sixth Lindsay Gordon mystery is a lightning-paced story spliced with crackling action and an intense emotional dimension. Jobless in Glasgow, Lindsay Gordon makes friends with a young freelance journalist, Rory McLaren. From there it is just a short step to political corruption and other juicy stories - all welcome distractions from Lindsay's problems at home with her partner Sophie. But when a local car-dealer's stepson is kidnapped, Lindsay and Rory are invited to trade journalism for detection. The trail leads them to St Petersburg and a dangerous snatch-back operation. It becomes clear that Lindsay and Rory have stumbled into a bigger, more violent piece of business than either of them could have guessed - and one which will test Lindsay to her absolute limits.

Fomand
My first book by Val McDermid, but it won't be my last. She's great, wonderful story line; had seen the movie and enjoyed the book just as much or more.
Reggy
Another great Lindsay Gordon story. I enjoyed it.
BeatHoWin
I began reading Val McDermid's work with the Tony Hill/Carol Jordan series. I loved it so much, I had to start reading the rest of her work. I have enjoyed it all! She comes up with some very interesting twists. I highly recommend any of her books!
Falya
Hostage to Murder: A Lindsay Gordon Mystery. All of Val MacDermid's books are good. I always enjoy her characters. Her books are never dull. Also the service from the company I purchased from was great.
Phenade
I love Val McDermid's books, she never fails to write a really great mystery.
Kaim
I was expecting more of wire in the blood style from this author. My mistake, I did not research the book enough. The writing is fine, just not the plot for me.

Scottish mystery author Val McDermid came highly recommended by friends. I know she has a legion of fans and many people like her stuff. This was my first novel by her and I didn't really like it. Can't say why, I just couldn't seem to get into the story.

I thought the opening was slow and didn't really hook the reader. It took a while for the plot to really develop and I had trouble sustaining interest throughout. I really didn't care much about the characters.

The writing was good and she did build some suspense, just not enough for me. She is no Michael Connelly or Lee Child. But then few writers are.

I'm afraid this is not an author for me so I'l leave her to her many fans to enjoy. I prefer other thriller writers.
