    Little Brian Wilcox's murder is the hottest story in Scotland. Every major newspaper crowds its pages with stories examining the crime from every angle. If only Paddy Meehan could get a scoop on the case. A nationally syndicated story would surely launch her fledgling journalism career out of the free local rag she's been working at.

    Overall

    Field of Blood is a clever and unique but perfectly plausible mystery. It took about 1 1/2 hours of listening to slug through the introduction of characters and get used to the Scottish accent. After that it was quite smooth. The plot was well crafted, and as with all good thrllers keeps just ahead of what you can guess will happen next. The prose combined local dialect with excellent turns of phrase. The characters, particularly the underconfident but determined protagnoist, were a delight. The subplots and development of the minor characters were interesting and satisfying as well.
    This book starts slow but builds quickly, and the listener who sticks with it you will be amply rewarded.
