Complexity. Fans of well-written crime fiction are those readers most likely to enjoy Denise Mina’s novel titled, The Long Drop. Set in Glasgow in the 1950s, the novel is a fictional account of serial killer Peter Manuel whose real crimes terrorized the residents of that city. I enjoyed the web of complexity that Mina lays out, and the clever ways she keeps readers off balance and in the dark.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
