I have just completed Insidious Intent, my first Val Mcdermid. An ideal holiday read with good sized font, short chapters and an interesting and engaging storyline. Until that is, Torin's story unfolded. The actions of 2 vastly experienced and intelligent detectives are simply daft and utterly unbelievable. To compound the writer's felony, in the midst of that side story, the identity of our murderer falls without warning into the hands of the detectives. 200 pages solidly following standard procedures......and then.....oh by the way that bloke you spoke to my colleagues about is.......... I had to complete the novel notwithstanding expecting thorough and painstaking investigation of the suspect's background and movements. No ! Rather an utterly incredible resolution upon so many premises(and I wont give it away Val) which was somewhat predictable several pages before it occurred. How I wished for a sensible and potentially thrilling end to the novel based upon a mixture of solid and sensible and even inspired, police work mixed with artistic licence and the thrill of the chase. My displeasure and dissatisfaction at the conclusion of the novel is such, that for the first time ever, I have been moved to comment publicly. I will read an earlier novel by way of comparison but not before I return to Ian Rankin who has never once left me as Ms M has. Holiday not ruined but gander raised !!! ... See MoreSee Less
