The Grave TattooHailing from Northumberland, England, bestselling author Val McDermid brings her latest novel, Darker Domain (Harper, Jan. 2009), to the SCWC. With 25 books and a hit TV series to her name, the UK’s Wire in the Blood, Val’s work has been translated into 30 languages and yet only now is finding the big time with this past April’s break-out release, The Grave Tattoo. A modern day thriller addressing a 200-year-old mystery — HMS Bounty mutineer Fletcher Christian’s apparent return to England — The New York Times declared the book, “Exciting…wildly beautiful,” while The Boston Globe concluded simply, “Extraordinary.” From us to Val, Dinna droon the miller!
