Garnethill - Denise Mina

Garnethill - Denise Mina (1998)

Maureen is in a bit of trouble.  After a night on the drink, she comes home  and goes to sleep in the morning, she finds her boyfriend dead with his throat slit.  With a history of mental illness, a drug dealer boyfriend and a couple of dodgy mates, Maureen wonders who could have committed the crime.

I have only recently discovered Denise Mina, and enjoy her gritty Scottish thrillers.  Tight writing with good believable characters make her books easy and enjoyable to read.  3/5

i adore mina's garnethill trilogy, read it many years ago. i also enjoyed "sanctum" but sadly i loath the paddy meehan-series, i haven't read any of the alex morrow-books but perhaps i ought to give them a try? ah well, with the still lacking reading mojo thing, i'm basically looking for very easy and approachable reads so that won't happen anytime soon i guess. but do let me know if you enjoy them!
