Glasgow. Fans of crime fiction are those most likely to enjoy reading Denise Mina’s novel, The Red Road. This is the first novel I’ve read by Mina, and I thoroughly enjoyed her characters and plot. Protagonist DI Alex Morrow comes across as a perfectly complete human: caught between work and home; highly skilled and also stumbling; confident and uncertain. Past and present time frames add to the complexity of the story, and brought me added pleasure. The case is interesting, the characters intriguing.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
