Val McDermid: A Darker Domain

The only McDermid's the library stocks are the newer ones. I want my beloved Lindsay Gordon, pretty please...

This one is a free-standing story, about a cold case detective (who by the way, is a fabulous character) who is asked to investigate the disappearance of a miner whom everyone assumed had gone off scabbing during the strike in -84. His daughter wants to find him to help save her son's life. At the same time new evidence emerges in a kidnapping case from that same era, and our detective with her male sidekick solves them both.

I liked this, but I wasn't mad about it. I loved our radar couple though, more of them.

Am being a bit short, because I want to return the books today.
