Murder MileEezeLike Fiona Gow five years earlier this girl has been strangled with her own stockings sexually mutilated and her eyes have been gouged out Is this the work of an Edinburgh Ripper? The pr Tony The New BlackLast year I had the pleasure of being introduced to DI Rob Brennan the new kid on the block for Scottish police fiction I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him and was left looking forward to the next time we’d meetI bumped into Rob again earlier this week in the new book Murder MileHe looked well at least in the circumstances Tough dogged passionate about the job and not about to suck up to anybody for any reason is how I found him – no change thereHe’s working another case That of a psychopath in Edinburgh A real nutter who delights in mutilation of young womenKicked out of the house by his wife missing his daughter and having had to break the news of a new death to a young woman’s parents might be things he takes in his stride but I think I know him well enough to see him buckling under the pressure no matter how philosophical he tries to beAnd hell I don’t envy the office politics in his place; I thought my school was bad but it has nothing on the police station not even close Seems the economic crisis is hitting the boys in blue as much as everyone else So I told him get the best you can to do the job the bean counters can go and play with their chick peas while you set about solving the caseNow I happen to know that there’s a pimping ex con with only the one prostitute in his team and she’s past her sell by date even though she’s only a young un Drugs you see They’ll do that to some people Anyway this guy has some information on the killer and is thinking about earning a little money to pay off a loan shark – which means he has to be pretty desperate if you ask meI’d tell the DI but I know he likes to work these things out for himselfAll in all it was a whirlwind of a meetingBrennan’s nothing but stoical He’s doing the usual thorough search and he’s not going to let it go Dog with a bone that guy with sharp teeth to go with itI’m really glad that I caught up with him again I reckon you’d like to meet him too Will it matter that you didn’t get to know him on his last case? I don’t think so I know him better now but I would have loved him while he works the Murder Mile even if I’d never set eyes on him before When he tells you stories they stand alone with a lot of strength so don’t worry on that score If you’ve already been there then you’re in for a similar treat There might be a little of the ‘deja vu’ but that’s only because you’re like old friends alreadyI’m hoping we’ll get together again next year Hard to guess whether he’ll have been thrown out of the force by then or got sick of that politics or whether he’ll be on the way back from another ‘break’ Who knows? Only time will tellTill then DI good luck with catching that lunatic Make sure our kids our safe on the streets Bless you for that sir Bless you

In a cold windswept field on the outskirts of Edinburgh lies the brutally mutilated body of a young woman As DI Rob Brennan looks at the tangled mass of limbs and blood he feels his heart fr I'm over 90% into this one yet wondering if I can be bothered to finish it The first in the series didn't grip me at all and now this one is similarly tedious It's not often that I don't get books I usually love them or dislike and don't finish but these Rob Brennan I just can't decide why they are so flawed and dull when they have all the ingredients of being cracking thrillers The main character is awful to my mind He's a loner He's got nothing interesting in his backstory to justify his continual foul temper and downright hostility to everyone He's extremely alienating to his family and colleagues and ultimately therefore to the reader Edinburgh is hideous Prostitutes sleaze corrupt police Nothing to relieve the unremitting unpleasantness there The minor characters have no depth at all They are merely names on a page The police work is plodding rather than intuitive If two girls from different local high schools were murdered a few years apart with the same MO would the police ONLY focus on the girls and trying to discover if they had something in common after school clubs for example or might they think to investigate if the schools had something or someone in commona teacher who relocated from one to the other seriously it's not rocket science But no they find this obvious fact out only at the very end and totally by coincidence I won't be reading another of these Not sure I'll even finish this oneYup given up Never done that so close to the end of a book but I seriously don't care about any of these characters so don't need or want to know their ending
