Fighting through a fog of grief when his best friend is murdered before he was able to confess love to her, disgraced ex-policeman Ruari sets out to investigate powerful lawyer Alec McAvoy who Ruari saw Lorna with the night before she was killed. But when he discovers that a woman...more
Glasgow Kiss is the first episode in a new crime series. For me it was very much a Murder Mystery.
When Ruari is determined to confess his feelings for best friend Lorna he has no idea that when he gets off the bus that day he will never see her again.
As he is about to discover she has been brutally murdered!
Ruari is ex police so when he finds out what has happened to Lorna he isn't about to sit back and do nothing. The love of his life has been taken from him ...more
Part One was pretty interesting and entertaining but I dont feel compelled to continue on to parts two or three. I had a bit of a problem following her scene transitions in the beginning but that just might be Duffys ...more
Ruaris dreams of finding true love with his best friend Lorna, are cruelly dashed when she is found brutally murdered in the Campsie Hills just outside of Glasgow. Ruari has his suspicions when he finds out Alec McAvoy, hotshot lawyer had a drink with her the night before she was murdered. Ruari had been in the police until he ...more
And my enjoyment just grew from chapter 2 ...more
My heart broke for Ruari as he discovered Lorna had died when he had finally plucked up the courage to share his feelings. Its hard to tell someone you like them, even harder when youre friends with them. But then to have that opportunity ripped away 😫
It took me a little to get into the story as unlike other novels Ive read that jump between perspectives, Dark of Night jumped between different ...more
At the same time forensic pathologies Amy Kerr thinks she has found the Dancing Girls Killer that escape capture in London five years ago. Ruari is a former officer and not going to sit by the side and let the ...more
The murdered Lorna becomes fully realised to us-more than just a victim, though we never actually meet her (although it appears that there may soon be an opportunity to do just that). She sounds like a great person to hang out with, and we are moved by Ruari's grief as he attempts to unmask the killer of his friend at great danger to himself.
A great first instalment that builds to a climatic finish. Looking forward to Episode Two.
And if ye dinnae like this boo? Then you must be a pure tube and a bit o' a numpty.
Having discovered CS Duffy via Jeri Walkers WordBank blog, I enjoy her writingshe conveys fun in her blogs and great imagination. I like that Dark of Night, while ...more
I downloaded this book through a promotion on Facebook. Id never heard of the book or author beforehand but when reading the blurb and it mentioned a body found at the Campsies I knew it was my kind of book. The book mentions lots of places I know which for me is always a bonus. The book is fast paced with lots of interesting and believable characters, my favourites being Cara Boyle and her younger husband. This is an author to look out for. Off to download episode 2. ...more
Cliff edge ending! This isnt the sort of trilogy you can read separately Make sure you can get Episode 2 ( and I suspect Ep 3 ) immediately! I dont usually like books that jump about so much in the first few chapters which is why I only gave it 3 stars but stick with it the strands do come together only to leave you needing to read the next one straight away! ...more
Came across this book quite by chance. Im so glad I did. The author manages to grip you straight away and builds the tension throughout. Great characters, good Glasgow patter and a serial killer on the loose. I have already downloaded the next two books. Whatever you do read this. It would make great television. ...more
The writing is solid. The location and language feels very authentic and I absolutely love that about this book. C.S. Duffy knows her stuff and it shows.
I highly recommend checking this one out. Its a really well done mystery with an authentic Glasgow feel, likeable characters and wonderful writing. You dont want to miss it.
*I read this book as part of a blog tour with R&R Book Tours. All ...more
I had trouble with the beginning of the book because of the many character perspectives, and I guess I was expecting the story to be told from the police detectives' perspective. That's where Duffy makes it interesting by telling the story by several people trying to solve the case in their own way.
The story is full of secrets and surprises that are unexpected and to my ...more
