Hostage to Murder Paperback
Part of the Lindsay Gordon Crime Series series
Hostage to Murder, the long-awaited sixth Lindsay Gordon mystery, is a lightning-paced story spliced with crackling action and an intense emotional dimension. Spraining an ankle is rarely a stroke of luck, but for Lindsay Gordon, jobless in Glasgow, the injury is her introduction to young freelance journalist Rory McLaren and the opening of a new chapter in her life.
Rory's invitation to work alongside her in her booth at the Cafe Virginia is irresistible.
From there it is just a short step to political corruption and other juicy stories - all welcome distractions from Lindsay's problems at home, where her long-term lover Sophie has decided to heed the ticking of her biological clock and get pregnant.
But when a local car-dealer's stepson is kidnapped, Lindsay and Rory are invited to trade journalism for detection.
The trail leads them to St Petersburg and a dangerous snatch-back operation.
It's a journey that brings a whole new dimension of risk into Lindsay's life.
Back in Glasgow, it becomes clear that Lindsay and Rory have stumbled into a bigger, more violent piece of business than either of them could have guessed - and one which will test Lindsay to her absolute limits.
