The day Richard's death announcement appeared in the MANCHESTER EVENING CHRONICLE, I knew I couldn't postpone clearing up the mess any longer. (from the first line)
Making babies becomes a matter of life and death for Manchester''s answer to VI Warshawski.
From the Publisher:

“A fast-paced joyride that swoops and curves past (or right over) the villains with barely a pause . . . readers will happily keep up, even if it leaves them a little breathless.”—Publishers Weekly

Kate Brannigan is having a bad week, and she can’t even cry on her best friend’s shoulder, for Alexis has worries of her own. Her girlfriend Chris is pregnant, and when the doctor responsible for the illegal fertility treatment is murdered, Alexis needs Kate like she never has before.


Literary Review
"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." - Philip Oakes July 1996

Times Literary Supplement
"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." - Natasha Cooper 08/09/96

"Val McDermid is an important writer." - Sara Paretsky
