Publisher's Summary

When her father’s killer, Glen Fallan, is arrested for another murder, PI Jasmine Sharp enters an underworld where violence is a way of life and vengeance spans generations. DS Catherine McLeod has one major Glaswegian gangster in the mortuary and another in the cells for killing him - which ought to be cause for celebration.

A BRAW STOY

I enjoyed listening to this very much - so much that it stopped me doing things I should have been doing. It was a storyline with a lot of characters who took a while to come together and a surprisingly 'feel good' end. The story line was good and the narrator was good. I feel a wee bit sorry for non-Scottish listeners as Mr Brookmyre drops a fair few bits of the vernacular in there. Well done Mr B - I enjoy his crime novels much more than his Sc-iFi ones

Another excellent Jasmine Sharp story

What made the experience of listening to Flesh Wounds the most enjoyable?

It was another great episode of the Jasmine Sharp world. In typical style Brookmyre weaves a believable Glasgow story with the usual characters. The truth is finally revealed about Jasmine's father as she tries to prove the innocence of her sometime protector and mentor Fallon.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Flesh Wounds?

Probably the dispatch of the arch villain by Jasmine Sharp, horrifyingly icky.

What about Sarah Barron’s performance did you like?

As usual her performance was excellent, she gives life to the characters and the Glasgow turn of phrase is brought to life by her silky Scottish voice.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Revenge of the bams!

Any additional comments?

Brookmyre's work is excellent, I have followed him for many years through many characters. Jasmine Sharp has grown as a character through the three books to a likeable, intelligent and Machiavellian character in true Brookmyre style. In fact the cast of regular characters have all grown into three dimensional people that you can't but fail to care for. If you are looking for a good taste of Glasgae wrapped up in a rip roaring story, this book is for you.
