Review quote

"Scott's prose suits her tough yet sensitive heroine and her storytelling is equally unflinching. Graphic violence contrasts with wilderness beauty in a thriller that has plenty of touching moments ... [Scott] delivers humane characters and supercriminals, romance without sentimentality, and adventure without easy answers. Orla McLeod's American debut ensures that she will take her place in the top ranks of fictional female detectives."-"Publisher's Weekly""Compulsive reading from page one to the shattering conclusion." -"Denise Mina", John Creasy Award winning author of Garnethill"There's not a word wasted in this unflinching novel, which still manages to demonstrate the profound power of love. It's a joy to read something so intelligent, so direct and so beautifully crafted."-"Val McDermid, " Golden Dagger Award winning author of A Place of Execution"Manda Scott picks us up by the scruff of the neck, drags us kicking and bumping along the rough side of life, then makes us fall in love with her characters along the way. WOW, JUST...WOW."-"Laurie R. King", Edgar Award winning author of Folly"Gritty, literate and engaging, No Good Deed is an exceptional achievement."-"J. Wallis Martin", Edgar-nominated author of A Likeness in Stoneshow more
