Denise Mina gives a blow-by-blow analysis of who the victims of the UK's financial crisis are, from the perspective of a pregnant detective in Glasgow who grew up in difficult circumstances. The difference between Mina's excellent book and say OR THE BULL KILLS YOU is that Mina includes relevant psychological details rather than writing a relatively superficial film treatment. It didn’t feel like the story was wrapped up to me. DS Morrow has featured previously in a Denise Mina book and I’m sure there’s more to come too.

shutting the door, something nameless weighed on her. She started the engine, using only the mirror to reverse into the street, already uncomfortable when she turned from the waist. She stopped at the bottom of the hill. Took a breath, shook her head and wondered what was wrong. A sense of discomfort but not the usual, this had a different quality

The End of the Wasp Season is the second book in the DS Alex Morrow series. The reader finds outs at the start of the book who was involved in the murder of a young woman. So we know who but the book leads us into the why. It goes back and forth with various points of view-even the POV of one of the young boys involved in the crime.

Two different deaths are central to the story. The murder of the young woman and the suicide of a multimillionaire who lost the money or futures of his investors. The book relates to on the job politics, dysfunctional families and a working mother working hard to support her family. It crosses paths of the very wealthy and working class people who are just making it. By the end of the book, all threads are woven together into the story.

This book is somewhat dark, It is a police procedural that proceeds at somewhat a slow but steady pace. My interest was held throughout the book. The main character is DS Alex Morrow who left a childhood of poverty to better herself as a police officer. She has secrets about her family and past that she wants to keeps from her professional life. She is smart and intuitive.

I have only read two books by Denise Mina but in both books she has given even the person who committed the crime their POV. Her books are high in characterizations and what makes the characters tick. I will continue with the series.

In the second installment of her Alex Morrow series, Mina has softened the angry officer. Her marriage is back on track, she is expecting twins, and she is reunited with an old friend. The real star of the show this time, however, is mental health. Just as Alex has gotten healthier mentally and emotionally, others in the novel's small universe are fracturing like thin glass. I really admire Mina's skill in handling elements of the unreliable narrator dilemma. Humans are never very good at recognizing truth about their own flawed perceptions, and the troubled people in this novel certainly see what they want to see about themselves and others. I eagerly look forward to the next installment in the series.

Perhaps for many American readers it would be too slow, far more characters with physiological problems than guns and bullets. While some have written that characters were nor realistic I think in our modern world today there are many families with similar problems to those portrayed in this book. Unmarried mothers or divorced bearing the brunt of child care as well as financial problems. Disjointed amilies with Mothers on drugs, Fathers with more than one family, come on our world is full of them.
I enjoyed this book and wish had read the first in the series, but for sure will read the next.

Back in 2010 I read the Garnethill and Field of Blood trilogies back to back. Every time I thought I should pause and try a different author, I'd read the first chapter of her next book and be hooked again.

It was only when I came to the first of the Alex Morrow's that my exalted opinion of Denise Mina took a turn downhill, and since then although I've continued to purchase books as they're released they've sat in a collection on my Kindle, unread.

With the end of the wasp season my only regret is that I took so long to get back to her. This was an extraordinary read. Alex Morrow is still hard, but with her twin pregnancy has softened around the edges from Still Midnight. I loved the way she's storing memories up about how much she enjoys the small wonders of pregnancy, against a time when she's almost certain catastrophe will strike again.

Psychologically unravelling one of the killers in tandem with updates about the progression of the investigation of the murder victim, Denise Mina managed to make me feel compassion for him, and begin to hope that I'd got things horribly twisted and he too was a victim.

The most beautifully drawn profile in the book is that of Kay, a cleaning woman employed by the murder victim to take care of her mother. I found it enchanting to read of Kay's memories of the woman in her care, and the genuine love and affection they grew to feel for each other even though her charge was suffering from dementia.

With the financial crisis as a backdrop to the story, and a rebellion growing amongst the police force Alex Morrow operates within, this is a compelling read that I loved every moment of.

The best news is that now I have the remaining books in the series lined up ready on my Kindle. Am I ready for another Denise Mina binge? I think I am.

"The End of the Wasp Season" is the second of Denise Mina's Alex Morrow series. Morrow is a sometimes abrasive, sometimes attractive female murder detective in the Glasgow area, the location of almost all of Mina's stories. The crime in "Wasp Season" takes place at the very opening scene, a murder of a young woman in a rich suburb, and the reader knows from close to the beginning of the story who the perpetrators are. The suspense in the novel rests on the crime's motivation, the precise details of the assault and murder, and finally the psychological journey of the people involved, from police, to innocent suspects to the criminals themselves.

A masterful writer, Mina is in top form here. The characters are vivid, the linked subplots are genuinely suspenseful, and the pacing is pitch perfect. Ending a suspense novel is one of the most difficult parts of writing one - with many talented writers floundering to wrap up their story. The conclusion of "Wasp Season" is by contrast one of the strongest parts of the work.

If you haven't read any Mina before, this is a terrific place to start. It is related thematically to the first Alex Morrow novel but stands on its own so can be read separately. If you have read other Mina before, order this one posthaste. 5 stars.
