Denise Mina caught the attention of mystery readers with her first crime novel, GARNET HILL, and she's returned with another dazzling story, this one also set in Glasgow. Heather O'Neill does a superb job voicing the lovably assertive protagonist, "Paddy" Meehan, a lowly female gofer at a Scottish newspaper in the 1980s. O'Neill somehow captures the nuances of her beautiful Scottish accent without making it indecipherable. The combination of Mina's skillful style and O'Neill's storytelling makes this tale of a child's murder one of those hypnotizing audiobooks that will have you working out longer on your exercise bike, waiting for the chapters to finish.
