    Fantastically Braw! Scottish Noir laced with a fair amount of the Glesga Banter, what more could a Glasgow girl who loves a gritty psychological crime thriller want? I'm sure those not from the area may struggle with some of the unique language but don't let that put you off.

Scottish Noir laced with a fair amount of the Glesga Banter, what more could a Glasgow girl who loves a gritty psychological crime thriller want? I'm sure those not from the area may struggle with some of the unique language but don't let that put you off. As I discovered from a Welsh friend who gave up on trying to do just that, instead he drew his own conclusions as to what some of the Glaswegian words meant and we both found that although sometimes he got it completely wrong, his version of translation was just as hysterical as the real thing. So bare that in mind and don't be put off, failing that just google it lol. This is the second book in the series and I made the mistake of thinking that as I had just finished book 1 and loved it, that I would just read a chapter and as it was 3.30am, then settle down for sleep. Hah!! I tried. I attempted sleep a few times and finally gave in. The plot for this book had me totally hooked. "The Heids" (the heads) as our unlikely hero and lovable rouge Brodie, affectionately called them and the whole idea of an artist who skins the faces from his victims and displays them as unique animatronic works of art, to the unsuspecting public was just genius. The author paints a vivid picture of the exhibition and I couldn't help but visualise the temple in Game of Thrones with the many faces of the faceless. Bravo Heather, finding a unique story line is increasingly hard in this genre. The same goes for the charachters, Brodie and his side kick and secret love Cass are refreshingly brilliant charachters. The story hooks you from the start and I found it impossible to put down. The pace continued throughout steadily building with not just a crazy and creepy serial killer, but the awesome and fantastic added bonus of Toni, the Grand Dame of Glesga Gangsters. Both plots running side by side just added to the tension and intrigue, not to mention the laugh out loud patter between the charachters. So glad I stumbled across this series, love it and moving swiftly on to book 3. X
