'Denise Mina is set to carve a niche for herself as the crown princess of crime' Val McDermid Maureen O'Donnell is facing the darkest episode in her life. She owes more than she makes in a year in back taxes; Angus Farrell, the psychologist who murdered her boyfriend, is up for trial, with Maureen as the reluctant star witness; and her abuser has arrived back in Glasgow in time for the birth of her sister's baby. On top of it all, Maureen - who identifies all too readily with the underdogs of this world - has become embroiled in someone else's family feud. When an elderly stallholder at the flea market where Maureen and Leslie are selling illegally imported cigarettes dies in hospital after a brutal beating, Maureen questions why anyone might want to kill the woman popularly known as 'Home Gran'. She suspects Ella's son, but Si McGee is an upstanding member of the Scottish business community, runs a chain of estate agents and has a health club in Glasgow's West End. But she soon discovers that the 'health club' fronts a much less respectable establishment. As Angus' trial approaches, Maureen is under threat once again, and this time she has very few protectors.

About the Author

Denise Mina was born in Glasgow in 1966. Because of her father's job as an engineer, her family moved twenty-one times in eighteen years from Paris to the Hague, London, Scotland and Bergen. After leaving school at sixteen and a run of poorly paid jobs, she went on to study Law at Glasgow University and researched a PhD thesis at Strathclyde. Misusing her grant, she stayed at home and wrote her first novel, Garnethill, which was published in 1998 and won the Crime Writers' Association John Creasy Dagger for best first crime novel. Since 1998 she has written ten further novels, including most recently, The Red Road. Denise also writes short stories, plays and comics, including writing Hellblazer, the John Constantine series for Vertigo, for a year. Since 2012 she has been adapting the Stieg Larsson Millennium Trilogy as graphic novels. She is a regular contributor to TV and radio. In 2012 The End of the Wasp Season won the prestigious Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award.


Tough, muddled, funny and compassionate, Maureen is a heroic figure as she bumbles doggedly across the paths of pimps and police, psycopaths and judges, aided by her devoted friends ... Not to be missed. -- Joanna Hines GUARDIAN
