Gods and Beasts
Book three in the Alex Morrow series
Winner of the Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Novel of the Year Award 2013
A grandfather brutally murdered in a post office raid.
A corrupt politician fighting for his future.
A police force up for sale.
Three crimes leading to one question - who really runs Glasgow?
Recently returned to work after the birth of her twins, DS Alex Morrow is called in to head the murder enquiry.
The grandfather had helped the gunmen before being shot - was it a moment of madness, a noble act of self-sacrifice, or did the old man and his killer share a dark past?
One city, three crimes and the powerful connections between Glasgow's criminals to the international spheres of the super rich.
“Gods and Beasts confirms Mina's place at the front of the crime-writing pack.”
“Gods and Beasts is a pure pleasure to read…”
"...literate writing, a strong sense of setting, nuanced characters, layered plotting that threads its way through the characters’ personal and professional lives, and a theme that resonates with readers.... This is a fine, flawless novel."
