Alex Morrow is not new to the police force-or to crime-but there is nothing familiar about the call she has just received. On a still night in a quiet suburb ofGlasgow,Scotland, three armed men have slipped from a van into a house, demanding a man who is not, and has never been, inside the front door. In the confusion that ensues, one family member is shot and another kidnapped, the assailants demanding an impossible ransom. Is this the amateur crime gone horribly wrong that it seems, or something much more unexpected?

As Alex falls further into the most challenging case of her career, Denise Mina proves why "if you don't read crime novels, Mina is your reason to change" ( Rocky Mountain News).

Since reading Mina's Garnethill Trilogy, I try to read every new book this author comes up with. I like mysteries, but only if they're well written, and Mina never fails me. Her books are gritty, to use a trendy term, but give the reader the best of both worlds: mystery and literature. Each one I read seems better than the last one, yet I recently reread her very first book, and it was just as satisfying the second time around. FIVE STARS.

Excellent! Denise Mina is truly a great mystery/detective/suspense writer.

A better title for this book might be "Still waiting for something to happen". I felt a bit cheated at the end. However, this book has great characters that never act as you would expect so you're kept guessing. Maybe I just guessed wrong but the whole thing left me less than satisfied.

I haven't read the others so I missed a bit of background but still enjoyed this book. Morrow is a complex character, trying to keep it together while dealing with a personal tragedy & internal politics at the police station. An english police procedural.

An outstanding thriller from Scottish writer Mina; dark, thoughtful and full of fascinating character studies.
