Internationally bestselling author Val McDermid is one of our finest crime writers, and her gripping, masterfully plotted novels have garnered millions of readers from around the globe. In Broken Ground, cold case detective Karen Pirie faces her hardest challenge yet. Six feet under in a Highland peat bog lies Alice Somerville's inheritance, buried by her grandfather at the end of World War II. But when Alice finally uncovers it, she finds an unwanted surprise-a body with a bullet hole between the eyes. Meanwhile, DCI Pirie is called in to unravel a case where nothing is quite as it seems. And as she gets closer to the truth, it becomes clear that not everyone shares her desire for justice. Or even the idea of what justice is. An engrossing, twisty thriller, Broken Ground reaffirms Val McDermid's place as one of the best crime writers of her generation.

This is the second book I've tried by this author. Not bad, but not skillful enough to draw me in. It's not high level writing. DNF on page 15.

you know a story is told by a master when it flows so smoothly that it feels like a doddle, effortlessly knocked out by mcdermid when the opposite is probably the case. google search came in handy for the unfamiliar scottish slang and brand names, but what a pleasure this was to read. now I'm craving a gin and tonic...
