'This is crime writing of the very highest order ...Kate Brannigan has turned into the most interesting sleuthess around' The Times Bodyguarding had never made it to Manchester PI Kate Brannigan's wish list. But somebody's got to pay the bills at Brannigan & Co, and if the only earner on offer is playing nursemaid to 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. Then offstage dramas threaten to overshadow the fictional storylines till the unscripted murder of the self-styled 'Seer to the Stars' stops the show, leaving Kate with more questions than answers. And you just can't get the help these days. Her process server keeps getting arrested; her tame hacker has found virtual love; her best friend is besotted with baby; and the normally reliable Dennis has had the temerity to get himself arrested for murder as a result of his latest dodgy business venture. Nobody told her there'd be days like these...

UK Kirkus Review »
The Wire in the Blood was a breakthrough book for McDermid, and increased substantially the (already considerable) number of Kate Brannigan fans. This time around, Manchester's favourite female private eye is in the unenviable position of playing nursemaid to a paranoid television soap-opera star when a medium is brutally murdered, and Kate finds herself with more than a handful of disparate mysteries to unravel - not to mention considerable threats to life and limb. McDermid is able repeatedly to invigorate the reader's interest in her protagonist and her peers should be looking to their laurels after this. (Kirkus UK)
