4 out of 5 stars

Excellent read this. Bit dark, bit gothic, but all the better for it. Unlikely hero (dodgy auctioneer) for something like a whodunnit and suspect therefore there is unlikely to be a series of these. But overall, quite compelling actually. Particularly evocative of one area of Glasgow and quite convincing portrayals of various underworlds.

A few wincing moments but overall really very good (and think it is a first novel too).
