Much as I love Val McDermid's writing, I gave up on her books when it started to seem to me that the things the killers in her books did to their victims were outlandishly vicious, described in too much detail and given too much prominence. It left images in my head that I didn't want to be there.

It's good to hear that she has a book that I can read without all of that.

Yeah, that is why after The Mermaids Singing I kinda stepped away from her books for a bit, or at least didn't pick them up one after another. I'm having another go now, but with some trepidation. :)
