I thought Broken Skin would be more gory, more disturbing and less of a ‘just-good-crime-novel’ than it actually was. Perhaps that’s because I’d just read Pig Island, which is truly sickening in places.

A series of rapes happens in Aberdeen, and the number one suspect is a local football hero; but is he guilty, or is PC Watson just desperate to nail him for something he hasn’t done? Dealing with themes of vengeance and loyalty, the book makes an interesting read and is definitely recommendable.
