But when the connection Paddy had been hoping for finally comes, it only threatens her career and family. Callum, her fiance Sean's young cousin, is implicated in Brian's murder, and when Paddy foolishly confides in her equally ambitious coworker, Heather, all hell breaks loose. Heather betrays her and sells the story to a major newspaper, making the entire Meehan clan turn on Paddy. The only way Paddy can redeem herself in their eyes is to clear Callum's name. As Glasgow buzzes with the scandal, Paddy notices a similarity between Brian's murder and the murder of a local boy several years earlier. Using her investigative skills, Paddy sets out to solve the case, at any cost.

Field of Blood is a clever and unique but perfectly plausible mystery. It took about 1 1/2 hours of listening to slug through the introduction of characters and get used to the Scottish accent. After that it was quite smooth. The plot was well crafted, and as with all good thrllers keeps just ahead of what you can guess will happen next. The prose combined local dialect with excellent turns of phrase. The characters, particularly the underconfident but determined protagnoist, were a delight. The subplots and development of the minor characters were interesting and satisfying as well.
This book starts slow but builds quickly, and the listener who sticks with it you will be amply rewarded.

What did you love best about Field of Blood?
Good story that held the interest
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
The plot twisted enough but did not bamboozle
How could the performance have been better?
Reader had the wrong accent and so all the characters from Glasgow had accents from Northern Ireland. Also reader mispronounced the name of the most famous street in Glasgow as well as the name of the football team known the world over.
