Reviews

A literary West Lothian question: why do Scottish writers dominate British crime fiction? With Denise Mina at least, the answer is pure class DAILY TELEGRAPH One of Denise Mina's many attractions is her willingness to take risks with her characters. She delves deeper than most into emotions, whether of the police, victims or perpetrators; she eschews the usual formula of crime fiction...The financial and moral disintregration of families, the iniquities of the class system and prostitution all play a role. Mina's best THE TIMES The writing is as sharp as a Stanley knife. -- Brandon Robshaw The Independent on Sunday Thoughful attention to detail take the novel to another level...Scotland has produced some seriously good crime writers; The End of the Wasp Season places Denise Mina alongside Ian Rankin and Val McDermid FINANCIAL TIMES Miss your bus stop...reading The End of the Wasp Season by Denise Mina, a gripping tale tracing the links between an elite private school, the suicide of a millionaire banker and the shocking murder of a wealthy young woman GRAZIA Cleverly breaks down everything you once thought you knew about crime novels WEIGHT WATCHERS MAGAZINE Denise Mina is one of Scotland's most impressive crime writers. This dark, angry novel doesn't offer easy thrills or the intellectual diversion of a whodunnit.
