Having just posted my top 10 (with wiggle room) on 4MA - I thought I'd repeat it here. Mind you, it's a thankless task having to pick an arbitrary number out of all the great books I've been lucky enough to read this year....
Naming the Bones
I was lucky enough to catch up with Louise Welsh on the phone recently and chat to her on behalf of the local Sisters in Crime chapter. We talked about her latest book - NAMING THE BONES, crime fiction, education and that ongoing question - so what is it about Scotland and all those fantastic writers (amongst a lot of other things).
Do you have one of those favourite authors, that you know is still writing, and you simply cannot resist their books when they arrived.
Louise Welsh is one of those for me and I was really really pleased to see NAMING THE BONES show up.
From the Blurb:
Knee-deep in the mud of an ancient burial ground, a winter storm raging around him, and at least one person intent on his death: how did Murray Watson end up here?
