"When small-time heroin dealer Jai McDiarmid turns up dead one fine Glasgow morning, no one is that surprised. A heroin dealer openly sleeping with a big-time drug trafficker's girlfriend, Jai had made a lot of enemies in a city with little patience for those stirring up trouble. As a result, Detective Superintendent Catherine McLeod has no shortage of early leads on the case when she is assigned to investigate it. Meanwhile, out-of-work actress Jasmine Sharp is facing more pressing problems. She's agreed to help out her "Uncle" Jim with his private investigation work, but is having trouble learning the ropes. As a former actress, lying to people comes naturally to Jasmine, but she's less adept at tailing her targets and remaining undercover. She's facing a steep learning curve-and is thrown in at the deep end when Uncle Jim goes missing and she realizes that it's going to be up to her to find him."--Publisher's website.

Solid police procedural with plodding plotting & a wee touch of Glasgow. A lot of the violence happens offstage.

It takes a little bit (or it took me a little bit) to get used to the accents/dialects in "Glasca," as it is called. But this is a terrific mystery in the end. Twisty plotting moves right along. Fine characters who I am eager to learn more about. On to book 2 in the series and here's hoping there are more to come after that.

I've been an avid fan of Brookmyre's since I picked up his first book so many years ago. As I recall, he's always taken many digressions when telling his stories. The last two I've read have suffered the most from this habit as he seems to be running out of interesting things to write.

This is one of the best books I've read so far this year.
