Annotation:
Denise Mina puts her background in criminology to good use with her intelligent thrillers that investigate not only a crime and its immediate circumstances, but also the broader social ills that also contribute to interpersonal violence. The first chapter of THE END OF WASP SEASON introduces a confounding murder scene, as a confused woman mourning the death of her mother gets interrupted from a restless nap by two young men. The woman, Sarah Erroll, thinks she might recognize one of the boys, the "angry" one who holders her eye in a frightening stare. The identity of the perpetrators, the not-so-straightforward life of Sarah that lead her to be the victim of this crime, and the motivation for the violence become the core of Glasgow police officer Alex Morrow's investigation. Pregnant with twins, Alex's search for the truth uncovers a plague of neglect and abuse haunting an otherwise affluent neighborhood. Mina brings honesty and compassion to her portrayal of all the characters--"good" and "bad"--elevating this gripping crime novel.
