Denise Mina has learned many things from Chandler and one of them is to have a protagonist who is wonderfully and spectacularly rude to people who irritate her. A cast of tough Glasgow characters that includes her drug-dealer brother and the biker from the Women's Refuge help her sort out a mystery that turns, crucially, on the way society despises, and will never listen to, those who have been stigmatised as mentally ill. This is a thriller which combines the intellectual excitement of investigation with an underlying polemical anger; it is a remarkably finished debut. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Quite a dark book but none the less very typical Glasgow humour. I've read the Paddy Meehan series and would recommend these to anyone who is a Mina fan.Published 3 months ago by Laura Grieve

This was a great read - very gritty and dark. It was quite challenging as it really looks at the underbelly of city life
but the main character was very compelling. Read more
i loved it - the mix of mystery/thriller and seemingly real and likely mental health issues worked well for me.Published 6 months ago by megamum
