Val McDermid in today’s e-book bargains

I read A Darker Domain several years ago and don’t fully remember the plot.  I do remember that I loved this novel, which introduced me to Karen Pirie.   Inspector Pirie solves historical mysteries that often intersect with the present.  After finishing this book, I went on to read every other Karen Pirie novel that I could puts my hands on. These included The Skeleton Room and Out of bounds, both of which I recommend highly.  I do remember that part of A Darker Domain took place during the Miner’s Strike and I learned a lot about how awful that was.  Val McDermid is truly a talented author of crime fiction!
