DOWNLOAD ó Garnethill Denise Mina Ä 0 DOWNLOAD Goas em whisky Só na manhã seguinte descobre o cadáver do amante na sua sala de estar selvaticamente degolado e mutilado Estigmatizada pelo rótulo da insanidade mental Maureen torna se a principal suspeita deste crime Esta obra de Denise Mina foi distinguida com o John Creasey Memorial Award em 1998. Garnet Hill is the first book in a trilogy it won the John Creasey Award for Best First Crime Novel The story is set in Glasgow and Millport Scotland A woman named Maureen O Donnell finds a body in her living room it is Douglas Brady her married boyfriend Maureen is a child abuse survivor and had spent time in a psychiatric hospital The police suspect her and her drug dealing brother Liam Maureen launches her own investigation to clear her name and begins to uestion who her real friends are and the kind of man Douglas was I really liked this book the writing style drew me and kept me interested The pacing was excellent The author left many threads in the first 25% of the book and then took the story in a different direction In the end was able to bring all the threads together and wrap up nicely I guessed wrong who the perpetrator was it was not until the last 25 pages that I got it right The character of Maureen O Donnell was smart believable and made you care about the outcome I enjoyed this book the Field of Blood book 1 in the Paddy Meehan series Both books had a strong female character who took on the system The other characters in the book were better drawn as wellThis book was similar in some ways to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson Maureen and Lisbeth were both abuse survivors and were institutionalized They were outsiders who were able to solve a crime before the police force Both had sex violence and profanity This is not a police procedural or cozy mystery My only negative comment is interactions with the police force The whole story is narrated by Maureen and we only witness her interviews with police and her thoughts about the police investigation Some of the interactions with the police seemed unreal The author presents the police as either incompetent or corrupt She used the same techniue with the Paddy Meehan series At times I had to suspend beliefI recommended this book if you like a book were an outsider takes on the system and are not deterred by violence and profanity Read this book if you had read either the Paddy Meehan series or the Alex Morrow series by the same author Many similar themes are explored

A Solid First Effort 3 Stars Having read some of Denise Mina s later works I know her a good writer with vibrant characters Knowing this was her first novel I lowered my expectation While I thought it was a good novel it was by no means great The story had sturdy bones but it was not always well fleshed out Plot Summary After a drunken night with a friend Maureen O Donnell stumbles home and passes out on her bed In the morning she awakes to find her boyfriend dead and tied up in her living room While she is immediately seen as the prime suspects Maureen follows a trail of evidence and murders to exposes a web of secrets shame and abuse My Take For me the biggest impediment in the novel was the pace of the story From beginning to end it felt as if the story was stuttering and I was continually reorienting myself In small part this was due to Scottish slang and cadence of the dialogue I generally find that it takes longer for me to become comfortable with dialogue in Scottish novels Unfortunately once I acclimated to the dialogue the novel was still jarring It was not always clear who was speaking and the author did not do enough to orient you to the speaker In addition to that scenes often ended abruptly Many times throughout the story a character would be moving here or there completing some project and suddenly that was over and they were else where doing something else It felt as if the book was missing some words and continually failed to complete sentencesI am sucker for a feisty female protagonist Maureen was at times feisty and at times timid Initially she would suddenly switch from timid to feisty leaving me confused as to why Eventually as the character developed I came to understand her occasionally odd behavior Her character was well developed and she was surrounded by a series of vivid and interesting characters I am still on the fence as to how I feel about the character of Maureen but look forward to seeing how the author develops herI think the area around Garnethill is supposed to be seedy but I am not sure Although the title of the book is a place name the setting did not stand out nor did it add to the story Fortunately the story was able to stand on its own Despite some bumps and bruises the overall plot was entertaining and engaging I especially enjoyed that the plot was exposed by Maureen obtaining information from some unreliable witness that she could relate and witnesses to which the police would be hard pressed to obtain useful information Final Thoughts I enjoyed the book enough to read the second one If I can find an audio copy for the next installment I may do that It may be just me but I find the acclimation time is much shorter when listening to Scottish to dialogue as opposed to reading Regardless full marks for writing in what I assume is a realistic dialogue from the area I much prefer taking the time to understand the speech than reading a dumbed down North American version
