Praise for Val McDermid's Kate Brannigan Series:

"The story and characters are convincing and Kate is an attractively persistent sleuth whom I hope to see again."-- Sunday Telegraph on Dead Beat

"You'd have to go far to meet a tougher girl gumshoe."--Mike Ripley, Daily Telegraph on Dead Beat

"Fresh and funny, with a spanking sense of time and place."-- Literary Review on Dead Beat

"Kate Brannigan is a sparky, funny and much to be welcomed entrant into the still tiny profession of the female private eye."-- The Times Saturday Review on Dead Beat

" McDermid's snappy, often comic prose keeps the story humming as Kate is drawn deeper and deeper into the twisted plot of her first murder investigation."-- Publishers Weekly on Dead Beat

"Kate Brannigan deserves promotion to the top rank, alongside Kinsey Millhone and V.I. Warshawski. Plot, characterisation, pace are all first-rate, and the bouncy Brannigan is one of the most likeable of all todays PIs." -- Sunday Telegraph on Kick Back

"Wry, spry, resourceful, resilient and fitted out with a quip for every contretemps"-- TLS on Crack Down

"The action, as always, is non-stop, and Kate is a worthy protagonist. Long may she thrive."-- Books Magazine on Crack Down

"McDermid combines her wit and exuberant writing with a careful and clever plot and oodles of perceptive social observation." -- Marcel Berlins, The Times on Star Struck

"Val McDermid's Kate Brannigan should remain firmly at the top of the private investigator's league."-- Sunday Telegraph on Blue Genes
