Promotional Information

Manchester-based, kick-boxing PI Kate Brannigan takes on the hard men of European organised crime as she battles to recover a Monet in a case that stretches love and loyalty to the limits. Manchester-based private eye Kate Brannigan is not amused when thieves have the audacity to steal a Monet from a stately home where she's arranged security. She's even less thrilled when the hunt for the thieves drags her on a treacherous foray across Europe as she goes head to head with organized crime. And as if that isn't enough, a routine industrial case starts leaving a trail of bodies across the Northwest, giving Kate more problems than she can deal with. Cleaning up the mess in Clean Break forces Kate to confront harsh truths in her own life as she battles with a testing array of villains in a case that stretches love and loyalty to the limits. / McDermid won the Gold Dagger for Best Crime Novel with serial-killer thriller The Mermaids Singing. / Highly promotable author with massive fan base and guaranteed excellent reviews. / Wire in the Blood, a major television drama for this autumn, is an adaption of her hugely successful Tony Hill thrillers. / Competition: Sue Grafton, Janet Evanovich
