Slip of the KnifeGlasgow 1990Paddy Meehan is home alone when there's a knock at the door It's the police and they have bad news Former boyfriend Terry Patterson's naked body has been found in a ditch He's been tortured hooded then shot through the head all hallmarks of an IRA assassinationPaddy is devastated T Great closer for a terrific trilogy Paddy Meehan has come a long way from her first appearance but she has retained her sense of self and her relentless nose for the story There is a fine tradition of journalists getting involved in mysteries and conspiracies and these three books have been a treat They all kept the focus on news gathering without ever trying to make Paddy a superhero or physically tough The background characters are drawn effortlessly and the plot barrels along I think I'm going to go ahead and read of Mina's books

Denise Mina ã Slip of the Knife pdf

Terry named her next of kin but he has left her a huge Georgian house in Ayrshire and several suitcases full of notesWhat was Terry trying to tell her As Paddy begins her investigation into his death she realises that if the secret he was about to expose was worth killing for she is next in li Denise Mina writes dark gritty crime novels set in Glasgow that capture the ethos of working class life there I've read a couple of her stand alones and liked them a lot I grabbed this one without being aware that it is the third in a series; my only reservation about the book is that there's a lot of carried over back story from the previous titles which is somewhat distracting if you didn't read those So I'd recommend starting with the first one which appears to be The Field of BloodIn this one set in 1990 Paddy Meehan journalist and single mother is shocked by the murder of a former lover a foreign correspondent with experience in overseas war zones There are indications the killing might be linked to the IRA the Troubles spilling over into Glasgow's complicated ethnic and political waters Paddy pursues the truth despite being warned off putting everything she holds dear at riskMina's writing is sharp and perceptive; Paddy is a tough and complicated heroine Glasgow holds center stage not exactly a vacation destination but a complex and intriguing place A good read
