This is the second book in the Garnethill trilogy, which was Denise Mina’s earliest work. When I read Garnethill, I said that “Glasgow comes to life, and Maureen O’Donnell makes a complex, human protagonist. The issues at the heart of this story are serious, and there is some grim violence, but the whole is told with warmth and a bit of humour.” Garnethill had more on-stage gore, whereas Exile focuses on the psychological aftermath of Garnethill, and the grim violence happens off-screen more than on-screen. And as I did in Garnethill, I found myself getting a bit confused in a couple of places, mainly toward the end when Maureen figured out the solution and was naming a bunch of people that it took me a little while to remember. What I liked best in this story was Maureen’s relationship with her brother, Liam. ( )

Laureen ODonnell trabaja en la Casa de Acogida para Mujeres de Glasgow, donde conoce a Anne Harris, una chica que llega al centro con doscostillas rotas y en plena batalla contra el alcoholismo. Dos semanas después, el cuerpo de Anne aparece en el río, grotescamente mutilado yenvuelto en una manta. Todo apunta a que el marido de Anne es el asesino, pero ¿no puede haber un culpable menos evidente? Maureen y su amiga Leslie tratan de romper con la indiferencia que rodea el asesinato de Anne, aunque, misteriosamente, Leslie mantiene la boca bien cerrada y no cuenta todo lo que sabe. En un intento por aclarar la confusión en la que se ve sumida su vida, Maureen viaja a Londres. Sin embargo, en lugar de solucionar sus problemas, pronto se verá inmersa en un mundo de violencia y drogadicción.

This is the second book in the Garnet Hill series. The story didn’t didn’t grab me as much as the first one -however, this rating shoots up to 4 stars because of the fantastic narration (Katy Anderson). Listening to her accents for the many characters felt like a visit to the theatre. ( )

I found this book hard going in places, to many minor characters.
The main character is Maureen O Donnell she is looking for a missing woman called Ann from the Woman's refuge in Glasgow were she works.
This leads her to London were she meets some dodgy characters.
Ann has a husband and 4 young sons.
A murdered woman is fished out the Thames it appears to be Ann.
Maureen does some more digging, Ann faked her death to get away from loan sharks in Glasgow.
Some Scum bag acquaintances of Anns kill a young Junkie and pretend its Ann.
Maureen solves the case and tells the Police. ( )
