    Back to Back reading of Val McDermid's Lindsay Gordon-Series.Started this one December 20th, 2012.Wow! Best book so far in the Lindsay Gordon-Series.Just to say that a scene late in the book started like an Agatha Christie-Scene: a who-dunnit-confontration. Could have provoked me to give 3 stars or less, except but no spoilers here. Read for yourself.Highly recommended. Do you have to read the first two books before that? Yes, for context and background I think it is necessary. Next!

    I read this some years ago. Rereading it this week was an absolute pleasure, possibly biased by a slight crush I have on Lindsay Gordon (I probably would find her difficult in real life). It would have been even better I think to reread the one before, so if you get the chance read these in the right order for continuity.Lindsay returns to Glasgow to find an ex lover has been murdered and a good friend is in gaol for it. The friend's partner has shacked up with Lindsay's partner and I have to ad [...]

    Book 3 of the Lindsay Gordon series. Gordon returns to Scotland after a nine month retreat to seclusion in Italy. Upon returning she learns of the murder of a previous lover supposedly by a friend of her who is incarcerated for the crime. She is hired by a lawyer friend to investigate if there is anyway to find reasonable doubt about the friend accused of the crime to try to appeal the conviction. The lawyer friend also happens to be the new lover of the woman Gordon left behind when she fled th [...]

    This was very good. I liked both the previous Lindsay Gordon books, the first books that Val McDermid published, but in this one she really got into her stride. It has great characters and an interesting story gradually revealed with strands of stories weaving together to provide a witness to break open the case in a quite remarkable manner. As well as the immediate murder mystery, it provides a satisfying next instalment in Lindsay's life. The locations and methods used by Lindsay feel concrete [...]


  • Ana

    As I expected, McDermid's skill grows throughout the series. By this installment her writing has grown more subtle and nuanced, supporting the story she's trying to tell rather than getting in the way of it.There's a lot to enjoy in this book. As always, Lindsay makes for a great hero. She's intensely hot-headed in her personal life yet performs her role of journalist/investigator with cool aplomb, which makes things interesting when those two roles intersect, as they do in this novel! She's als [...]


  • Wayne Spiceland

    Like the first two books in the series, Deadline for Murder is a quick, easy, enjoyable read. Journalist Lindsay Gordon, having returned to the UK from which she'd had to flea in the previous book, having run afoul of MI5 or Special Branch or some such, is still a likeable and engaging character, despite her headstrong, my-way-or-the-highway personality. The mystery is solid and the murderer is a definite surprise. Since I really didn't care for that particular character, I wasn't overly disappo [...]

    Lindsay Gordon has been in hiding in Italy since the end of the 2nd book in the series. She now returns to Glasgow where she is hired to prove a friend is innocent of murder, even though she has already been charged, convicted and sentenced. Lindsay has to confront her past and overcome her regrets if she is to prove her friend's innocence.This is an enjoyable read but I didn't particularly like the ending. But still work reading.


  • Grace

    I really like this series of books. I didn't think I would because I was so invested in the Tony Hill/Carol Jordan series but although the character Lindsay Gordon is very different she is not less fascinating. I have found that as I have read each book, I have enjoyed it even more than the last one and I'm looking forward to reading the next one.


  • JodiP

    The third in the series, a former colleague of Lindsay's is accused of murder just as she returns from hiding out in Italy for six months. (Surprisingly, there are no consquences for this, and her leaking of a security story in the last book.) The victim is a conniving, black-mailing woman who is a former lover of Lindsay's. She does her sleithing, and finds out the killer is Cordelia, her most recent lover, who'd she'd had to leave behind when she fled for Italy! In the end, she can't bear the [...]


  • Kristel

    In the hands of a more skilled prose writer, VL McDermid’s Final Edition could have been a pleasure to read. The premise itself is compelling: investigative journalist Lindsay Gordon returns to Scotland after a brush with the Secret Service sent her to self-exile. She immediately finds out that she’s been replaced by her girlfriend. Meanwhile, a close colleague of hers named Jackie Mitchell is in jail for the murder of the notorious Alison Maxwell, Lindsay’s former lover. When Lindsay is a [...]


  • Kay Robinson

    Lindsay seems caught between the devil and the deep sea, unable to do right for doing wrong in the fallout as friends and aquaintances seem to turn on each other as a former lover is murdered and her friend charged. The reader feels the frustration as Lindsay does and searching for the real culprit is a true whodunnit, even down to the final damming expose, and even that with an unexpected twist. The complicated relationships between the characters seems confusing at first but thankfully all pla [...]


  • Andy Walker

    A brilliant and tightly written murder mystery that shows Val McDermid really getting into her stride as a crime writer. The third book in the Lindsay Gordon series sees the central character dealing with a collection of lawyers, journalists, politicians and other nefarious individuals as she cracks open another case. The end outcome is somewhat surprising but none the less gripping for that. Can't wait to read the fourth in the series now.


  • Richard Barnes

    This book is as dull as rope. Uninteresting characters get involved in an uninteresting murder of a universally disliked character. The wrong person got sent ot jail, so I guess our heroine had to do something but nothing very interesting happens on the way.It gets 2 stars because I did finish it, and it wasn't actually bad, just dull.


  • Rosalind Mitchell

    A Glasgow journalist is convicted of the murder of the woman who ensnared her in an affair, and her former partner calls in Lindsay Gordon to try to clear her name. But the web the dead woman wove is intricate and Lindsay's employer may just be trying too hard to be helpful. Enjoyable and well-worked out; keeps you guessing until near the end.

  • Shona

    This is a third in one of the Lyndsay detective series. I had read the second - not that that really matters as you are reminded of the previous title although not annoyingly so - thoroughly enjoyed it even though the Lyndsey character got up my nose somewhat! Sorry I have deleted the book from my reader and I can't remember the character's full name!!!!! Early Val McDermid I think.


  • Maria Longley

    Ex-journalist Lindsay Gordon has another look at a case that saw a friend locked up in prison for murder when she gets back to Glasgow. I've missed out some of the action that happened before ut that didn't really matter when reading this book I don't think and I was still happy to see that Lindsay got a happy ending.

    "Deadline for Murder is a breath of air from the Scottish Highlands - clear, clean, honest, and invigorating. A single-malt Scots pleasure, Lindsay Gordon will only get better as she ages." -Laurie R. King


  • Erin

    Serious surprise ending in this one! I was fully shocked by the solution.


  • Naomi Blackburn

    This series is getting betteryou can still tell that this is early VM work thoughI much prefer her Wire in the Blood series.


  • David

    Nice and light, reasonably enjoyable but no great substance.


  • Jackie G

    Really like the protagonist and McDermid's plotting. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.


  • Vrg

    Did not compare to others of hers that I have read


  • Ricardo

    So far in the Lindsay Gordon series, the one I've enjoyed the most. Let's see what the next one is like


  • KarenC

    Like others in the Lindsay Gordon series, could be described as a "whoreallydone it." Lindsay comes to the rescue of another friend imprisoned for murder. What a surprise ending.


  • Sharon

    Just a fun feminist mystery.
