I liked this story a lot and I'm glad to have found this author. The story moves along with good psychological study. Altho the beginning was a bit gory for me, it serves the plot well and doesn't go on and on. I ended up feeling the characters had been fully realized, for a mystery book, and I felt sympathy for even the "perp". It was a struggle between wanting him to get caught and dreading him being found out. The spectre of a false solution to the case added tension.
The reader was terrific. I found her Scottish accent to be understandable and it added a bit of color. The setting was well described and I enjoyed learning some about Scottish life - not the kilt-clad highland type.

I got "The end of Wasp season" because NPR books recommended it as one of the best "Sherlockian Mysteries" . I then listened to the sample on Audible and I had no choice ...I had to get this book. My problem is I do not think the book is as much a mystery as it is a character study. You know who "did it" in the first 5 minutes. You actually know just by listening to the sample. After finding that out I think Denise Mina is a very talented author The investigator in this book is now going to be one of my favorite detectives to follow .I am looking forward to reading more of her books The book may be a little dry so for some this book may be one that is better to read then to hear.
I very much enjoyed this narrator. I think Jane McFarlan did a spectacular job with the End of Wasp Season.
