Val McDermid 3-book crime collection
Read the award-winning and Number One bestselling Val McDermid at the top of her game in these three nail-biting crime thrillers.
A PLACE OF EXECUTION: In 1963, Alison Carter vanished in the Peak District. Journalist Catherine Heathcote remembers the case from her childhood, and interviews DI George Bennett for his recollection of the hunt for Alison. But when a fresh lead emerges, Bennett tries to pull the story - plunging Catherine into a world of buried secrets and explosive revelations.
THE DISTANT ECHO: Four drunken students find the body of a woman in a snow-covered cemetery. Twenty-five years on, a 'cold case' review of the murder still has them as the main suspects. But when two of them die in suspicious circumstances, the only way for the remaining two to save themselves is to find out who the real murderer is.
THE GRAVE TATTOO: Scholar Jane Gresham believes that the poet William Wordsworth may have sheltered Fletcher Christian, the mutinous First Mate on the Bounty, and turned his tale into an epic poem - which has since disappeared. But the centuries-old mystery is putting lives at risk. And it isn't just the truth that is waiting to be discovered, but a bounty worth millions.
