I liked this book for the following reasons.
The main character Scott Cullen is not the one in charge so his frustrations with procedure and team working felt realistic.
The detection process throughout unfolded at a believable pace.
The plot line using social media was intriguing.
Cullen's personal life added plenty of messy detail
Less enjoyable aspects were that Cullen came over as a bit too arrogant and dismissive of other officers. Surely the senior officers would have better skills?
A bit too much swearing!
The local detail was lost on me, not being from bonnie Scotland myself.
Some phraseology slowed me down eg. "Back of seven" but I also like to be challenged a bit as a reader.
I've got the rest of the series and the personal relationships and police politics seems to be developing nicely.
I could see this as a TV series. Nicely done Mr James!
