Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"In Mina's latest thriller (and follow-up to Still Midnight) set around and in contemporary Glasgow, detective Alex Morrow — pregnant with twins — must investigate the brutal murder of a young woman named Sarah Errol. What Morrow finds is a web of deceit that will rock the community and eventually connect to an earlier suicide. Jane MacFarlane — who has recorded previous Mina novels — narrates in a lilting, mesmerizing voice and with a lovely Scottish brogue. Her reading is well paced, clear, and utterly compelling. Easily managing the books thrills and chills, MacFarlane also creates distinctive but restrained voices and regional accents for the book's many characters — never resorting to caricature or cliché. Highly enjoyable and a must for Mina fans. A Little, Brown/Reagan Arthur hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

When a notorious millionaire banker hangs himself, his death attracts no sympathy. The terrible legacy of a lifetime of selfishness is widespread but most acute among those he ought to be protecting: his family. Meanwhile, in a wealthy suburb of Glasgow, a young woman is found savagely murdered, leaving the community stunned. When Detective Inspector Alex Morrow, heavily pregnant with twins, is called in to investigate, she soon discovers that a tangled web of lies lurks behind the murder. Its a web that will spiral through Alexs own home, the local community, and ultimately right back to a swinging rope, hundreds of miles away.
