OK, Goodreads, that's like the worst blurb in the world. I really like Kellen’s first-person voice, although the habit she has of responding to dialogue with a thought before a new line for the actual response is confusing. I often had to go back and say, no she didn’t really say that. This is first of a series, and good enough to get the rest. This is set in Scotland, the main character is a psychiatrist, who doesn’t seem to need to see patients. Her ex-lover is killed. Unfortunately we never get the backstory on what happened between them, or what the deal was with another character in law enforcement. But the intrepid threesome of Kellen, Lee, and Janine was a lot of fun. Think Charlie’s Angels without Charlie and a lot more B&E.
But in the end, it was kind of infuriating. A relationship is never resolved. We never learned the nature of Kellen’s breakup with Bridget. Did one of them cheat? With Caroline? Why did Kellen leave? How is she still friends with Caroline? Who, by the way, vanished for long stretches of the book. Enough to make me suspect her. And for god’s sake, why didn’t Malcolm do something so basic and obvious (can’t reveal more than that). The plot has more holes than Boston’s Big Dig tunnel. And loose threads everywhere. Still, I liked the writing and the characters and the story. Being my first time with this writer, I was intensely stressed about who she might kill off. While it got pretty gruesome, everyone I wanted to survive did.

Read information about the authorNovelist, columnist and broadcaster MC Scott (aka Manda Scott) trained as a veterinary surgeon in Glasgow and worked at the Universities of Cambridge and Dublin, specialising in anaesthesia. A brief three year stint as a Director of the computer games company, Frontier Developments (Elite, Frontier First Encounter, Wallace and Gromit; Elite: Dangerous) bridged the gap from veterinary medicine to writing.
Her novels have been short listed for an Orange Prize, nominated for an Edgar Award and translated into over twenty languages. She was a long term columnist for the Glasgow Herald, is a reviewer for the Independent and has contributed to the Telegraph, Times, Daily Express and BBC History Magazine. She has appeared on Time Team as an expert on the Boudican era and contributed to Radios 4 & 5.
She is honoured to be Founder and current Chair of the HWA and looks forward to the association's continued growth. When not writing, or writing about writing, (or blogging, facebooking and tweeting about writing), she competes at canine agility and teaches shamanic dreaming courses and, of course, the occasional Arvon week somewhere beautiful in the UK countryside.
Her latest novel is Rome: The Art of War. In preparation is a dual timeline novel of Jeanne d'Arc which lifts the lid on centuries of spin: whatever & whoever else she was, she absolutely wasn't a peasant girl who happened to get on a horse and found she could carry a lance.
