|Plot Summary of Garnethill|
If you have any lingering fanasies about happy, picturesque Scotland GARNETHILL will put them to rest. Glasgow native Maureen O'Donnell is an incest survivor, a recent mental hospital inmate, has the mother and family from hell, and wakes up from a drunken stupor to find her lover in shreds in her kitchen. Naturally the police suspect Maureen and she must find the real killer. Tremendously well written and involving, the reader roots for Maureen conquer her demons, but suspects she wouldn't be half as interesting were she so-called "normal".
