Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
In this followup to Garnethill, Maureen O’Donnell, having lost her job due to investigating her boyfriend’s death and now working in a women’s shelter hears about the brutal murder of a former shelter resident. After visiting the husband she decides he is too passive to have beaten and murdered her so she goes down to London to investigate. Maureen’s own problems continue to haunt her: the return of her abusive father, her alcoholic mother, unfriendly siblings, nosy cops, deteriorating friendship with Leslie and dismay at brother Liam’s former occupation (drug dealer). As she delves into the seamy side of the seamiest parts of London she finds herself in danger but somehow also getting stronger. She comes back to Glasgow clearer about who she is and what she wants. Fantastic characters abound in this gritty novel.
