Publisher Description

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.

Meanwhile, 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. 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.

The End of the Wasp Season is an accomplished, compelling and multi-layered novel about family's power of damage-and redemption.

It Doesn't Get Any Better

If you like a tightly knit story with unpredictable twists and chills, it gets no better than this brilliant thriller. Whatever comes next for this author, count me at the front of the line.

Good writer, excellent narration!

I'm new to Denise Mina and as a listener and a reader of British mysteries, I found her work to be top-rate. Love Alex Morrow; she's bright, honest about herself and her capabilities and has a good sense of humor. I like the way the chapters switch scenes and keep the pace fast. Well written, convincingly narrated without overdoing it.
