In one volume, the first two mysteries featuring a journalist who investigates murder, from the Diamond Dagger winner known as "Britain's Queen of Crime" (The Times).

From the Edgar Award-nominated author of the DCI Karen Pirie series, this two-in-one volume includes:

Report for Murder

Self-proclaimed cynical socialist-lesbian-feminist and freelance journalist Lindsay Gordon is strapped for cash. Why else would she agree to cover a fund-raising gala at a girls' public school? But when the star attraction is found garroted with her own cello string moments before she is due on stage, Lindsay finds herself investigating a vicious murder.

"A timeless mystery, well-plotted with crisp dialogue and solid characterization."?Orlando Sun-Sentinel

Common Murder

When her former lover is accused of murder -- at a women's peace protest, no less -- Lindsay must bring all of her expertise as an investigative reporter into play -- and uncovers a truth even she can scarcely believe.
"McDermid's snappy, often comic prose keeps the story humming."?Publishers Weekly
