Would you listen to Still Midnight again? Why?
After a long long time maybe. I only listen to non-fiction and classics more than once.
What other book might you compare Still Midnight to and why?
Not fair, Denise Mina is unique. Her locations, her characters can't be met anywhere else I know of.
What does Jane MacFarlane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her beautiful (appropriate) Scottish accent and a subtle way of reading I really appreciate. I hate the drama kings and queens. I want to hear a story. I don't want to hear someone emote.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Don't want to spoil the experience for anyone. There were a lot of great moments and lot of moving ones, not sentimental, just really deep.
Any additional comments?
I've said it, I'm a fan. If you don't like naturalistic characters and a little squalor with your stories, you won't like most of Denise Mina. I also highly recommend "Deception." I don't think it's available here. Don't bother with abridgments. The FLAVOR of her work IS her work.

I don't usually enjoy books about terrorism with plots involving ethnic factors. But these issues were side issues in this book, with the actual story involving petty criminals looking for a big score and an officer moving one foot in front of the other trying to survive a shattering loss. I would have given the story a 3 1/2 if I could have - 3 is too low. I loved the story until the end, when the book just seemed to stop. But I look forward to reading another by this author.
