The Hanging Shed by Gordon Ferris.Review.

We are thrown right into the action as the story opens after a serious crime has been committed. Some think that the person who has been accused of the  crime(Hugh Donovan) is actually innocent. He quickly needs the help of an ex-soldier/ex -policeman called Douglas Brodie .
The story is set in 1940's in Glasgow and it was very enjoyable seeing the way locals speak, I think Gordon did a great job of making the characters come alive in that way. Some of the details of the crimes are a little hard to read about but it is written so well you gladly keep reading. It was an edge of the seat plot with a lot of travel and the pace really speeds up from midway towards the end. I found it great fun trying to figure out how everything was going to come together by the end of the book and by the time I got there I was very satisfied. If you like a hero who is a bit of a rough diamond then you will really enjoy the main character.
