Resolution

By Denise Mina (Trade Paperback, 2007)
A New York Times Notable Book of the Year

"Resolution can stand alone, battered and proud, as a class-conscious crime novel that dares to tell the ugly truth." -New York Times Book Review

Just as Maureen O'Donnell is struggling to give up drinking, she faces her most formidable challenges yet: testifying against her boyfriend's murderer and the return of her abusive father. Irresistibly blending suspense, compassion, raw instinct, and grim wit, Resolution provides a wrenching conclusion to Denise Mina's universally acclaimed Garnethill trilogy.

"For anyone who thinks Western civilization too comfortable or crime novels no more than entertainment, Denise Mina's Garnethill trilogy will come as a salutary surprise. It will also make them laugh and keep them reading. It is a great achievement." -Times Literary Supplement

"If you want a reason to try the crime genre, get yourself a novel by Denise Mina." -Rocky Mountain News

"Mina depicts a Scotland so hard that merely living there can cut you like a shard of glass." -Baltimore Sun
