I am glad I managed to overcome my concerns about this and read this great book which introduces us to the main characters DI Duncan Waddell, his new partner DC Brian McKeith and his former partner DC Stevie Campbell who is currently in a coma.
This is very well written and the story reveals itself in a way one would hope in a good detective novel.
I very much look forward to reading book two in the series as soon as it is released.
There is a lot going on in this book and at times I did lose the thread a little. There are many steps in the plot and some aspects felt they were there only to move the story along. For example, Shelley Craig’s kidnap felt the first stepping stone albeit a rather large one. Once this aspect of the case had been investigated, it wasn’t really mentioned or referred to again. I don’t want to drop any spoilers here but I’m still not sure what the outcome was with the other two kidnapped woman. Maybe all will become clear in the second book.
Would I recommend this book? I would. I really enjoyed Thomson’s investigative team, led by Waddell and featuring the ever so slightly annoying, McKeith. I would be quite happy for Waddell to keep sleuthing alongside McKeith rather than bringing a conscious Stevie Campbell to the story, as they make an interesting pair and one I really warmed to (even though they didn’t really warm to each other!). I also liked how wonderfully Scottish this novel is. Great story but I did feel a little dizzy in places.
Four out of five stars.
I chose to read and review Vile City. The above review is my own unbiased opinion.
