"Three story lines expertly braided with Manchester PI Kate Brannigan investigating graveyard fraud, pop terrorism and--most intriguingly--the murder of a devious fertility expert, secretly engaged in experiments to seed child-hungry lesbians with female partner's eggs. Scrupulously researched, but not so that you'd notice. McDermid's galloping narrative converts information into pure protein."
"McDermid packs it all into 237 highly readable pages, along with jokes, cookery, a progress report on Brannigan's developing relationship with Richard Barclay, and plenty of examples of her brave and generous attitude to life."
"Val McDermid is an important writer."
