DENISE MINA Blood, Salt, Water
Acclaimed two-time winner of the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award, Denise Mina weaves a gripping tale of greed, power and misconception. DI Alex Morrow and her team have been shadowing a woman suspected of being involved in a large drug-smuggling and money-laundering operation. Roxanna Fuentecilla recently moved from London to Glasgow in suspicious circumstances. But then she disappears. She’s left her partner and her two children, and something leads Morrow to question what’s really going on. In the nearby picturesque town of Helensburgh, Iain Fraser is struggling to live with his overwhelming guilt. Under orders from the infamous Mark Barratt he’s just killed a woman and now he’s left with blood on his hands. Denise Mina is a critically acclaimed Glaswegian crime writer. She also writes short stories, plays and comics. Since 2012 she has been adapting the Stieg Larsson Millennium Trilogy as graphic novels.
