Report for Murder - Val McDermid
An author friend of mine, Chelsea Cain, who writes AMAZING murder mysteries (for grown-ups) suggested this author as one of her favorites at a recent book reading I attended, so I thought I'd check her out. It was nothing like Chelsea's work, much more slow going and mellow, but I liked it a lot. It's set in England with a Scottish reporter as a writer who turns into a detective when someone is murdered at the all girls boarding school where she's gone to do a story on their fundraising efforts. There were not many grisly moments in this novel, nor many that were too scary, but there was certainly tension that kept things moving.
I'll definitely be reading more of this author's work.
