Aged 21 and suffering under the gloom of the Thatcher years Patricia Paddy Meehan is the only wage earner in her Glasgow family Her job is as a very junior reporter on a fictional Glasgow newspaper the Daily News her main task is to cruise the city at night with a driver listening to the police radio and checking the hospitals and cop shops in search of an interesting story One night she witnesses a pair of cops being bribed not to investigate what looks like an extremely nasty domestic incident the following morning she discovers that the woman in uestion a prominent lawyer and Amnesty activist was tortured to death The next day the dead woman s ex fiance commits suicide and the cops choose to assume this is an admission of guilt for the murder even though Paddy knows they must know this cannot be true This is the second of Mina s books that I ve read the other being Deception which I enjoyed while I was reading it only to feel let down by the ending which seemed to me an artifice rather than a resolution I felt let down by the ending of The Dead Hour too which leaves several plot strands unresolved and seems to be setting things up for a seuel I ve since learned that my suspicion was probably correct there s another Paddy Meehan book after this but also that it had a Paddy Meehan predecessor In other words in terms of what s gone before the novel works just fine as a standalone in terms of its ending not so wellI was less captivated by Mina s writing this time round I kept noticing odd little bits of description that didn t seem to make sense Someone made a little figure of eight gesture with their head which sounded reasonable until I tried it Someone else walked along flapping their hands behind them which is far easier to do but would be completely abnormal And so on There was also a sex scene that must surely have been at least nominated for the Bad Sex Award This isn t to say that the novel doesn t function as a pageturner it does just that I felt it lacked the narrative drive of Deception as evidenced by the very fact that I was noticing these thingsAll in all then an interesting book but one that failed to kindle my passions
