Blending suspense, compassion, raw instinct, and grim wit, Denise Mina’s Resolution completes her compelling Garnethill trilogy (which includes two New York Times Book Review Notable Books of the Year) that Val McDermid, author of A Place of Execution, calls “head and shoulders above much of contemporary crime fiction.” In her gripping new crime novel, Mina returns once more to the seamier precincts of Glasgow and the untidy world of the hapless but resolute Maureen O’Donnell. Maureen’s abusive father has shown up again in Glasgow; and Angus Farrell, the psychologist who so gruesomely murdered her therapist-boyfriend, is going on trial—with Maureen as the star witness. Meanwhile, she’s embroiled in another hard-bitten family’s feud when Ella McGee, an elderly stallholder at the flea market where Maureen sells illegally imported cigarettes, decides to take her son to small-claims court over unpaid wages and then turns up beaten brutally in Albert Hospital. Violence hovers in the most familiar precincts of Maureen’s Garnethill, and Denise Mina once again proves herself to be an award-winning writer.

Now, at last, the brutal and disturbing climax to the Garnethill trilogy.
Maureen O'Donnell is facing the darkest episode in her life. She owes more than she makes in a year in back taxes; Angus Farrell, the psychologist who murdered her boyfriend, is up for trial, with Maureen as the reluctant star witness; and her abuser has arrived back in Glasgow in time for the birth of her sister's baby. On top of it all, Maureen -- who identifies all too readily with the underdogs of this world -- has become embroiled in someone else's family feud. As Angus's trial approaches, once again Maureen is under threat, and this time she has very few protectors.About the Author:
