Can't wait for another book, great story. Character development continues bringing Catherine a little more personality and depth. Warming her up a little. A little more violence, but still way down for today's standards.
I don't want to give anything away so I'm not saying much. I like that even though it deals with violence and serious stuff, the story never becomes moody or gloomy. Serious, sometimes a little sad, but also spots of humor, like real life. Not swedish gloom noir.
I hated to reach the end.

What made the experience of listening to Bred in the Bone the most enjoyable?
Christopher Brookmyre's characters are never dull. His dialogue is wonderful and I love the little details in his books that make them seem real. He writes normal people in abnormal circumstances flaws and all. Even if the story is a dark one, the wicked sense of humor that this author has always comes through. I laugh out loud when I read his books.
Which scene was your favorite?
There are too many great ones in this book to pick just one. Besides, I don't want to give anything away.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me laugh many times. The author has a talent for making people see the amusing side of even the darkest moments.
Any additional comments?
I am thrilled that Mr. Brookmyre's books are becoming more available in the US. It was difficult to locate the audiobooks for his earlier works.
