This review is from: Eye for an Eye (Paperback)
An excellent novel from an author and a publisher who are new to me. Totally disagree with the reviewer N. King. A novel has to be set somewhere and an evocation of place by referring to street names, pubs, landmarks is inevitable and helps to set the scene. If a book is set in my home town (as many have), I'd feel an immediate sense of closeness to the author and plot, whether he/she lived there or not.
Since this is a review of a book and not a review of a review, I'd like to commend Mr Muir on his plot (interesting and not at all derivative), characters (Gilchrist is easy to empathise with since he's both intelligent and flawed) and dialogue (seems realistic though I'm not a Scot).
If this is the beginning of a series, I look forward to future entries.
