Synopses & Reviews
"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 clichÃ©. Highly enjoyable and a must for Mina fans. A Little, Brown/Reagan Arthur hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
