Kate Brannigan is a great invention and the convoluted investigations in which she finds herself are both highly imaginative\on the one hand but also highly credible. This sound basing of what happens in the realities of what
presumable passes for everyday life in urban England makes the stories move along at a brisk pace and one is never left
straining to accept what happens. In present terms, a worthy successor to those who tread the mean streets - and this
one in high heels!
