Val McDermid#2

Report for Murder and Common Murder: Lindsay Gordon Mysteries #1 and #2Final Edition and Union Jack: Lindsay Gordon Mysteries #3 and #4Booked for Murder and Hostage to Murder: Lindsay Gordon Mysteries #5 and #6Val McDermid is known for her Karen Pirie novels, the Tony HIll series and a number of standalones, including A Place of Execution, which is one of the best books that I have ever read in the genre.  But, before all that, came the Lindsay Gordon series.  Lindsay was apparently the first lesbian detective in British fiction.  These books are interesting mysteries set in a variety of locales including private schools, Greenham Common or somewhere very like it, a newspaper convention, etc.  The novels are definitely mysteries.  Attention is also paid to Lindsay’s relationships in a very matter of fact way.  I think it is fantastic that these books have been re-issued.  Look for them and enjoy.
