About this deal

Scottish noir seems to be all the rage lately, with series after series set in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, and the like. Some are good, some not so good. This book has to be one of the best.

Slowly but steadily, a determined DCI Lomond and his team will be able to figure out what the reasons were behind and who's responsible for the killings of the helpless children, a former associate and family member. This was the first book in what promises to be an absolutely brilliant series. The characters in this book that we were introduced to were deep in their own ways as well as relatable. The storyline was dark and chilling with plenty of twists along the way, with the conclusion finishing the story off brilliant at the end. This book was right up my street, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I can’t wait for the next instalment!In North Korea, any literature not written by or about the leadership of the country is banned. Any book that doesn’t focus on the rise of the Party or that does not glorify the rise of Kim’s power is banned. This makes it difficult to imagine the other, whether the other is a place, person, or time.

The Shortlist is shot through with Andrew Raymond’s dark Glaswegian humour and thrilling twists. Taking you from his beloved home city to the north west coast of Scotland. What I liked best was the complexity of the story. There were five members of the team, a half dozen or so other officers playing major roles, three separate crimes over a twenty year period, and more suspects than I could count. And yet it all worked. Granted, I've never heard of anything remotely similar happening in real life. But somehow Mr. Raymond makes it work. Hello? You are indicating that a paedophile succumbed to his urges 20 years ago…yet somehow there are 10 years between one murder and the other. It is said the man was fired for grooming! In an online chat but no one did anything, not even open a case AND his colleague knew about his preferences but didn’t even come forward then? How did he meet Sharon? Why did the collude? There is no history behind this…

Upon seeing Methvin’s father parked on the side of the road, Bonnie and Clyde took the bait. They pulled over, presumably to ask him for help. Now, with nothing but work left in his life, Lomond remains obsessed with the case–despite the nightmares it brings.
