    It's the week before Christmas when a lone robber bursts into a busy Glasgow post office carrying an AK-47. An elderly man suddenly hands his young grandson to a stranger and wordlessly helps the gunman fill bags with cash, then carries them to the door. He opens the door and bows his head; the robber fires off the AK-47, tearing the grandfather in two. DS Alex Morrow arrives on the scene and finds that the alarm system had been disabled before the robbery. Yet upon investigation, none of the employees can be linked to the gunman.

    D. says: "Wonderful writing, not-so-wonderful performance"
    "Can't get enough of Denise Mina"

    Story
    What did you love best about Gods and Beasts?

    Denise Mina's narrative voice is so genuine. There's nothing like it. She has been my favorite author for years.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gods and Beasts?

    The conversations between Rosie and Martin were captured with such nuance I felt as if they could be real people.


    What does Moira Quirk bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her use of accents seems right-on.


    Any additional comments?

    Though not Denise Mina's best work, perhaps, I loved soaking up every minute of the story.
