Another enjoyable read and fast paced information kept me turning pages. Scottish crime fiction is in good hands with Marion Todd!
Again another fine story, I’ve enjoyed this series very much, but it looks like this may be the final instalment, hope not, if it is I will miss these stories set in my home county of Fife.
