Description
This compelling successor to Garnethill, which won the prestigious John Creasy Memorial Award for Best First Crime Novel in 1998, returns to Glasgow's grimmer precincts and the untidy life of Maureen O'Donnell. It also again pulls Maureen into a grisly case of murder -- this time of Ann Harris, who had been nursing two broken ribs and reeking of alcohol when she'd visited Maureen's office at the women's shelter two weeks before her mutilated body was washed up by the Thames hundreds of miles away.

Eager to quit Glasgow for a spell and escape her own problems, Maureen travels to London to search out the circumstances surrounding Ann's brutal death -- and soon finds herself treacherously out of her depth. As Maureen strives in desperation to piece together Ann's last days in order to save herself from a similar fate, the suspense ratchets up and Denise Mina secures her place among the top-ranking writers of hard-boiled crime fiction at work today.

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year

Trying to escape her own troubled past and the memories of her lover's murder, Maureen O'Donnell finds refuge working as a counselor at a shelter for battered women. When the body of shelter resident Ann Harris washes up on the banks of the Thames River two weeks later, Maureen vows to discover what happened and to prove that Ann's husband is not to blame. Taking her search to London , Maureen soon encounters disturbing truths about Ann's hidden past - including a secret that has Maureen fighting for her life.

"Atmospheric, intense, and full of the disturbing flavor of inner-city lowlife." -Guardian

"Reads like a slap in the face - and a kick in the ribs and a fist in the stomach . . . like its powerful predecessor, Garnethill." -New York Times Book Review
