The Skeleton Road by Val McDermid
The book is gripping, thought-provoking and original
- a tour de force Literary Review
The Skeleton Road does an excellent job of wrangling
with these big ideas inside a tightly paced mystery with wonderful depictions
of place, characters we come to care about and an ending that contains
at least one unhappy surprise.
Val McDermid‘s novels have been translated into
more than thirty languages, and have sold over eleven million copies.
She has won many awards internationally, including the CWA Gold Dagger
for best crime novel of the year and the LA Times Book of the Year Award.
She has been described as "the acknowledged queen of the psychological
thriller". Val McDermid and Paul Carson will join Seán Rocks
in glór on Saturday 7th March as part of the Ennis Book
Club Festival 2015.
