Giveaway of Slip of the Knife by Denise Mina

Valerie and Hatchette Book Group are sponsoring a giveaway of Slip of the Knife by Denise Mina. I thoroughly enjoyed Denise Mina's Still Midnight and am so looking forward to reading this!

About the Book, courtesy of the publisher:
Paddy Meehan is no stranger to murder--as a reporter she lives at crime scenes--but nothing has prepared her for this visit from the police. Her former boyfriend and fellow journalist Terry Patterson has been found hooded and shot through the head. Paddy knows she will be of little help--she had not seen Terry in more than six months. So she is bewildered to learn that in his will he has left her his house and several suitcases full of notes. Drawn into a maze of secrets and lies, Paddy begins making connections to Terry's murder that no one else has seen, and soon finds herself trapped in the most important--and dangerous--story of her career.

About the Author:
Denise Mina is a "fearless" (GQ) writer "of stunning talent and accomplishment" (Publishers Weekly) and "the crown princess of crime" (Val McDermid). She is the author of Garnethill, which won the John Creasey Memorial Prize for best first crime novel, Exile, and Resolution. She lives in Glasgow.

The Reading Group Guide for Slip of the Knife has a few spoilers - so instead of writing it out in full, please head here to download a PDF version.

  14. I've never read this author. I really need to read more crime mystery authors. One that is sort of in the same genre is Serpentine by Thomas Thompson. I simply loved that book.

  28. I'm already a big fan of Mina, when I want to get my gritty Glasgow violence on. And, of course, Ian Rankin for the Edinburgh side. I don't think M.C. Beaton counts as "noir," and while Taggart might, that's TV!
