Resolution Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Resolution

Glaswegian market trader Maureen O'Donnell has more pressing things to do than investigating the suspicious death of an elderly market stallholder. She is due to give evidence at the trial of her former therapist, cold-hearted rapist and murderer Angus Farrell, and if he isn't convicted he'll be coming after Maureen for retribution. Also her father Michael, who abused her as a child, is awaiting the birth of his first grandchild, and Maureen is determined to protect the new arrival from Michael - even if it means murdering him in cold blood.
