    The fifth book in Val McDermid's Lindsay Gordon mystery opens with the "accidental" death in London of bestselling author Penny Varnavides, one of Lindsay's oldest friends. When police learn that the bizarre conditions of Penny's death match those described in the manuscript of her unfinished novel, they arrest Meredith Miller, the long-time lover Penny had recently parted from on bad terms. Reluctantly lured across the Atlantic on the chance of helping Meredith, Lindsay (a crusty but lovable expatriate Brit) meets up with old friends and uses her journalistic expertise (and some old but impressive business cards from her days on a national newspaper) to dig up information. Who knew the contents of Penny's unfinished book? And who might have wanted her dead? Dodging rude secretaries, obstructive literary agents, slippery publishers, and one determined baseball bat (should this have been a cricket bat?), Lindsay slowly eliminates possibilities until she is ready to confront the killer. While not the most exciting volume in the series, Booked for Murder does show off Gordon's sleuthing skills, as well as her ability to turn the tables on evildoers. --Regina Marler

    2 of 3 people found the following review helpful: What a disappointment!, January 2, 2002 Reviewer: Sharys Wheeler from San Jose, CA United States I couldn't even finish this one. Flimsy story, bad writing, way too much emphasis on being gay and too little on a real story. Helen was so obnoxious no one could put up with her, whatever her sexual persuasion. I was looking forward to a new mystery writer with lots of books in her bag, but think I'll skip this one...
