With the support of friends, family, and lovers, she takes on the world with wit and brio, unraveling criminal conspiracies and unmasking murderers. Shes feisty, feminist, and funny.Each novel plunges Lindsay into a different milieu. Report for Murder is set against the backdrop of an exclusive girls boarding school; Common Murder features a womens peace protest, where feelings run deadly; Deadline for Murder forces Lindsay to confront the darker side of her own world of journalism; Conferences Are Murder explores the deadly underbelly of trade unionism; Booked for Murder lifts the lid on publishing, showing its no longer a gentlemans game; and Hostage to Murder brings Lindsay face-to-face with child custody battles and the gangsters who inhabit the world of terrorism. The hallmark of McDermids novels is a compassionate understanding of human relationships and a shrewd insight into contemporary society.The Lindsay Gordon novels have been published to great critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. Booked for Murder, the fifth Lindsay Gordon mystery, was nominated for a Lambda Literary Award. McDermid has been praised for the way her storytelling interweaves the various elements of the novel into a seamless, balanced whole. I dont write about issues, I write about characters, McDermid says.
