Book Review: The End of the Wasp Season by Denise Mina

Two Deaths - One Journey

A savage murder in a wealthy Glasgow suburb has the locals afraid. As detective Alex Morrow begins to investigate she learns that there are many secrets including the victim's personal life that becomes relevant in looking for those responsible.

Simultaneously a billionaire commits suicide as scandal will strip him of his wealth and reputation. Ripples of damage hit his wife and two children who will have to come to terms with a new stripped down life.

Together these stories intertwine as not everything is how it seems on so many levels. Images are not always the truth.

The investigation itself is interesting as is all the characters. Detective Alex Morrow has her own story too as she is pregnant with twins and trying to remain relevant in a squad dominated by men.

Good book!
