Publisher's Summary

He's dead. So says his own newspaper, the Glasgow Gazette: Douglas Brodie, 25 January 1912 - 20 July 1947.

Just four weeks before, a senior banker was kidnapped. Brodie delivered the ransom money, but the drop went disastrously wrong. Brodie was coshed in the kidnappers' den. He woke with a gun in his hand next to a very dead banker with a bullet in his head.

The case against Brodie is watertight: the bullet comes from his own revolver, the banker's wife denies knowing him, and his pockets are stuffed with ransom notes. In an apparent act of desperation, Brodie cheats justice by committing suicide in his prison cell. Could this be the sordid end for a distinguished ex-copper, decorated soldier, and man of parts?

    Story
    "another great story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gallowglass to be better than the print version?

    Generally yes. This author is ideal for audio. The number of chacters is right for the story but not too many for listening. Pace of story is ideal. Only negative is that Samantha's accent is completely wrong for the character. Her accent is not scottish middle class which grates slighty to my scottish ears.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Although you could work out most (but not all) of the plot before the end, the story, writing and pace kept you involved.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The funeral tea


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found a lot of humour but was also interested all the way through


    Any additional comments?

    With this ending, can Brodie star in another book?

    Story
    "Buchan-nesst"

    The beginning of this story seemed more in the style of John Buchan, but eventually seemed more like the prose of previous books in thus series. It was a little disappointing to begin with, but with well drawn characters it was not hard to keep on listening to the story

    The narrator was excellent and made the story and characters come to life. Despite the beginning it was another good book in this series
