Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Blending suspense, compassion, raw instinct, and grim wit, Denise Mina's Resolution completes her compelling Garnethill trilogy (which includes two New York Times Book Review Notable Books of the Year) that Val McDermid, author of A Place of Execution, calls "head and shoulders above much of contemporary crime fiction."

In her gripping new crime novel, Mina returns once more to the seamier precincts of Glasgow and the untidy world of the hapless but resolute Maureen O'Donnell. Maureen's abusive father has shown up again in Glasgow; and Angus Farrell, the psychologist who so gruesomely murdered her therapist-boyfriend, is going on trial — with Maureen as the star witness. Meanwhile, she's embroiled in another hard-bitten family's feud when Ella McGee, an elderly stallholder at the flea market where Maureen sells illegally imported cigarettes, decides to take her son to small-claims court over unpaid wages and then turns up beaten brutally in Albert Hospital. Violence hovers in the most familiar precincts of Maureen's Garnethill, and Denise Mina once again proves herself to be an award-winning writer.

Review:

"[P]owerful, disturbing, wrenching....The novel culminates in a startling crescendo of violence, vengeance and resolution." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Once again, Mina delivers a Scottish blend of Thomas Harris, George Pelecanos, and Oprah-style reading that is uniquely her own and goes down very smoothly." Library Journal

Review:

"An unflinching portrayal of evil and the kind of heroism it takes to combat it." Booklist (Starred Review)

Review:

"Mina's canvas is so broad, so teeming, and so relentlessly sordid that the biggest surprise in this final chapter in Mina's not-to-be-missed Glasgow trilogy is that she can pull off the climax her title promises." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"A riveting story, with characters who leap from the page fully formed, wonderfully realistic dialogue, and the outcome in doubt until the final pages." Susanna Yager, Sunday Telegraph

Synopsis:

Returning to the seamier precincts of Glasgow and the untidy world of the hapless but resolute Maureen O'Donnell, Mina's Resolution completes her compelling Garnethill trilogy (which includes two New York Times Book Review Notable Books of the Year).

Synopsis:

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. As Angus's trial approaches, once again Maureen is under threat, and this time she has very few protectors.
