Definitely worth reading if you are already a fan of the series. Fans of Ms McDermid's Tony Hill series may not enjoy this as much because the Lindsay Gordon books manage to be more lighthearted even though it also deals with murder.
The characters are all witty and there are several 'laugh out aloud' moments in this book.
It's been a while since the mess Lindsay got into over the murder of Tom Jack in 'Union Jack' and she is now back in the States with Sophie.
Unfortunately a good friend from Frisco gets murdered while in London and her former lover (also a friend of Sophie and Lindsay's) is the prime suspect. Lindsay flies to England in the hopes of finding the 'real' killer but as usual gets caught up in a more deadly game than she expected.
The book is well written with lots of hair raising moments to compliment the more jovial ones. The dialog and descriptions are, as always, spot on.
This is a very enjoyable read and i sincerely hope Ms McDermid doesn't call it quits with the series.
