Clean Break Summary


Clean Break (PI Kate Brannigan, Book 4) by Val McDermid

The fourth riveting thriller in the Kate Brannigan series, from No.1 Sunday Times bestseller Val McDermid.

`The Queen of Crime is still at the top of her game' Independent

Manchester-based private eye Kate Brannigan is not amused when thieves have the audacity to steal a Monet from a stately home where she's arranged security. She's even less thrilled when the hunt for the thieves drags her on a treacherous foray across Europe as she goes head to head with organized crime. And as if that isn't enough, a routine industrial case starts leaving a trail of bodies across the Northwest, giving Kate more problems than she can deal with.

Cleaning up the mess in Clean Break forces Kate to confront harsh truths in her own life as she battles with a testing array of villains in a case that stretches love and loyalty to the limits.
