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.
Annotation:
Kate Brannigan has more cases than she can handle, particularly now that her partner wants her to buy him out so that he can move to Australia with his new squeeze. He's leaving her on her own to investigate the murder of Sarah Blackstone, a fertility doctor who promised her lesbian clients that she could impregnate them without involving any men, as well as the harassment case of her rock-journalist boyfriend, who is being terrorized by a gang of thugs.

Praise

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

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
