Today was our first of three discussions on Denise Mina’s Alex Morrow series. We started with the fascinating Still Midnight and we will be continuing with The End of the Wasp Season. Jen and I are super excited about these books, and we both had to restrain ourselves when it came to not going ahead and reading the next book in the series. They are that good!
From The Publisher: When a notorious millionaire banker hangs himself, his death
attracts no sympathy. But the legacy of a lifetime of selfishness is widespread, and the carnage most acute among those he ought to be protecting: his family.
Meanwhile, in a wealthy suburb of Glasgow, a young woman is found savagely murdered. The community is stunned by what appears to be a vicious, random attack. When Detective Inspector Alex Morrow, heavily pregnant with twins, is called in to investigate, she soon discovers that a tangled web of lies lurks behind the murder. It’s a web that will spiral through Alex’s own home, the local community, and ultimately right back to a swinging rope, hundreds of miles away.
The End of the Wasp Season is an accomplished, compelling and multi-layered novel about family’s power of damage-and redemption.
The publisher providing these books with the understanding that we (and you!) will have a readerly discussion. There are no further requirements. If you are a blogger and review the book, great! If you are not a blogger, but review the book on LibraryThing or GoodReads, or talk it up on Twitter, and tell all your friends, wonderful! The main thing is for you to have fun and come discuss these books with us over the summer.
If you would like to participate in The End of Wasp Season BOOK CLUB, please fill out this form by Noon EST on Thursday, June 13. Your mailing address will be discarded if you aren’t selected to participate, and used to mail you the book if you are. I do not share or retain any personal information.
