Jobless in Glasgow, Lindsay Gordon makes friends with a young freelance journalist Rory McLaren. 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.

Books reviews
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.
Another great Lindsay Gordon story. I enjoyed it.
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!
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.
I love Val McDermid's books, she never fails to write a really great mystery.
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.
