Product description


A massive five stars for Open Wounds - Douglas Skelton has a canny knack of taking the reader on a journey that embroiled them into the "Life" but also transports them right onto the streets of Glasgow - through the tenement buildings, up the dark closes and places you'd never want to go - reading his books makes me live, breathe and experience the world of Davie McCall. - CHAPTERINMYLIFE Dark and satisfying, plenty of great dialogue and humour, that old cliche - a page-turner - well it is. What's even better is the economy of style in which Skelton wraps this all up - a shade under 250 pages. BIFF, BANG, BOSH! Job done - highly recommended! - COL'S CRIMINAL LIBRARY This is genuine Tartan Noir, grounded in the real recognisable Glasgow of today - a rare treasure amidst some of the overblown melodramatic dross which is so often wrongly acclaimed as giving an authentic picture of life here. I'm delighted to have stumbled across Douglas Skelton and he is now part of that select band of Scottish crime writers to whose future books I will look forward with keen anticipation. - FICTION FAN BLOG Reading Open Wounds was a joy on so many levels and the moments of levity gave a nice balance against some of the more gritty scenes. - GRAB THIS BOOK --This text refers to the paperback edition.
