Publisher's Summary

When notorious millionaire banker Lars Anderson hangs himself from the old oak tree in front of his Kent mansion his death attracts no sympathy. But the legacy of a lifetime of self-serving is widespread, the carnage most acute amongst those he ought to be protecting: his family. Meanwhile, in a wealthy suburb of Glasgow, a young woman is found savagely murdered in her home. The genteel community is stunned by what appears a vicious, random attack. When DS Alex Morrow is called in to investigate, she soon discovers that behind the murder lurks a tangled web of lies. A web that will spiral through the local community, through Scotland and ultimately right back to a swinging rope hundreds of miles away.

Starts good but ends in rather a rush

Well read, appropriate voicing and nice to listen to. The strong starts well but the closing chapters seemed like a rushed finish.

Good effort from Denise Mina

Would you consider the audio edition of The End of the Wasp Season to be better than the print version?

Possibly; Sally Armstrong read it very well.

Which character – as performed by Sally Armstrong – was your favourite?

Alex Morrow.

Any additional comments?

A very good novel, could be enjoyed as a stand alone story, though will probably make more sense if you've read Still Midnight.

Excellent narration

Great story, with clear, easy-to-follow narration. I wish other Denise Mina books were done by this narrator.
