The Grave Tattoo

The Grave Tattoo - Val McDermid So far, I agree that this novel is very much in the same line as The Rule of Four, etc. It seems to be just as well written and as entertaining/compelling. The characters are more interesting to me though as the former featured ivy league college students with all that such a culture entails. More later.
