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.

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.… (mere)

Sarah Erroll is brutally murderd by gawky teenage boys after recognizing one of them. Her life comes under a microscope: her questionable lifestyle, and care for her deceased mother, who suffered from Alzheimer's disease. DS Alex Morrow os celed to sort things out, and there are many suspects, including a school friend of hers, who was the mother's primary caretaker. One of the boys, Thomas Anderson, is told that his father Lars has hung himself, to avoid responsibiilty for his sleazy business dealings. There are lots of politics in the police department, and Alex is also dealing with family issues and her pregnancy with twins. I did not connect with any of the characters. ( )

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.

This was an absorbing police procedural that really drew me in. I really liked the Morrow character and the way she investigated, how she asked questions and how she figured things out. The character development was excellent including Thomas, the teenager accused of the murder, and his dysfunctional family. The ending tied up the loose ends in a surprising and satisfying way. Overall, a story that kept me very interested all the way to the end. ( )

This was a great read. A young woman is murdered by two teens. Another two teens are suspected. The investigating detective is pregnant with twins. I honestly never knew where any of it was going. It was fascinating. ( )

Seduced by the hype, I succumbed.

The characterisation, at least of the lifestyles, if not of the people living those lifestyles, may well be well done, but...

the woman just can't write!

The story lacks rhythm, the book has no pace. The plot plods. For half a page at a time - all the time - the reader can't work out where people are, why they're there, whom they're with, what they're talking about ... I suppose this is what we acknowledge as 'style' - but it's oh, so tiresome, especially when the answers turn out to be oh, so dull.

Drivel dressed up as a novel: a drag. ( )

Pretty good second. ( )
