Title: The End of the Wasp Season: A Novel

Author: Denise Mina

KDL Description:

“For those seeking an artfully crafted story with plenty of suspense, look no further. The tale begins with a murder, of course, but what ensues is anything but the norm. Complex characters from both working class and high society Scotland make this page turner a summer sizzler. The audio version is especially wonderful for those who love superb voice acting.”
—Heather at KDL’s Spencer Township Branch

Amazon 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.
