The Bumble's End by Jimmy Bain and Barbara Scott-Emmett

I read this as a free download and enjoyed it immensely.
It is a light, easy to read crime thriller with a variety of quirky characters and a fast moving plot.
It is a dialogue driven novel which is consequently lively and entertaining.
The protagonist is highly engaging and the plot is full of twists and turns with a good ending.
There is a strong 'Scots' element to the voice of the story which gives it originality and energy.
In places it is very funny and overall I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good, escapist read.
