    OK that s like the worst blurb in the world I really like Kellen s first person voice, although the habit she has of responding to dialogue with a thought before a new line for the actual response is confusing I often had to go back and say, no she didn t really say that This is first of a series, and good enough to get the rest This is set in Scotland, the main character is a psychiatrist, who doesn t seem to need to see patients Her ex lover is killed Unfortunately we never get the backstory o [...]

    Do not judge a book by its cover I remember being in my early teens and seeing a book in a shop window I loved the title, it sounded full of promises I bought a copy, and I disliked it When I saw Hen s Teeth , I didn t like the title A friend said, I was told it is funny Do you want to check it out So, I read Hen s Teeth , and I loved it I loved the humour, I loved the main characters, I loved the plot, and while I was not really interested in the Bantams, I loved the dogs Hen s Teeth was a book [...]


    Not a bad book I liked that the mystery came first in the story and the fact that most of the lead characters were LGTB came in second I am going to have to see if there are Manda Scott mysteries out there I do wish that LGTB books were written like this one, where the story is centeral and the characters sexuality is there but not in your face there I do have to say that this is the first book on the Orange Prize list that I have liked.


    Wow This story took me by surprise The backcover blurb does not hint at the female relationships that form the backdrop for the story What a delight to have such strong and numerous female characters in a nail biting, dark mystery The writing is excellent and the plot unique I don t want to give any spoilers so I will end this review by saying READ this book

    Katherine Clark

    It s interesting, but it is definitely a first book She is explaining too much about some things and not giving enough info about others I m beginning to get irritated I feel too much in the dark But, many other people on loved it, so I ll keep reading.


    Crime Mystery Not my usual pick for a book but had it on my shelf Kept my interest and was unique, I wanted to keep reading till the end which wasn t disappointing.

    Good mystery novel with strong lesbian lead.

    Stevie Carroll

    This is very much a first novel, but it has some compelling characters, and I m keen to find out what happens to them next after a gripping series of adventures for them in this book.

    Drugs rule the world through chickens.

    Manda Scott s debut novel There is resemblance here, in the writing, to her most recent novel Into the Fire than was to be found in either the Boudica or Rome series It was interesting to see where her writing began as there was sufficient gaucherie in this novel that, at one point, I almost put it away but I persisted and was also interested to be able to observe how she wrote writes dispassionately, in a way, than I had done with any of her other books She had, at that beginning point, a nat [...]


    This exceptional murder mystery was recommended to me by a favorite author of mine and it did not disappoint The characters are exceptionally developed, even if after their death and the deaths are a mind boggling puzzle Manda Scott is a skillful author and her lush descriptions of the farm and the surrounding countryside and cityscapes of Glasgow made me feel right at home It s been a long time since I ve read a mystery novel this masterful.

    Baxter Trautman

    Glasgow psychiatrist uses her medical background to investigate suspicious death of a former lover Much of the action is set on a farm, foreshadowing the adroit nature scenes of Scott s Dreaming series Good debut novel, though Scott s tendency to jump from present to past tense was jarring Find myself missing her characters and waiting for Nightmares to arrive in my postbox.

    Daniela Kraml

    reminded me a lot of mcdermids lindsey gordon books the book is certainly dated 80is i d say , but so are christie or sayers i liked the people a lot looking forward to read the other two in the series.


    Unputdownable as I suspected it would be, and writing of a quality that drives would be writers to despair I d better leave reading the other two until after Chrstmas, lest I snarl at interruptions.


    See my full review of this novel in the Lesbian Mystery Reading Group.


    An interesting story with interesting characters Well worth reading.


    The characters were sort of developed The mystery was pretty good Overall, an engaging read but nothing blew me away.

    A woman s lover dies as she finds solace with a chicken friendly scientist.

    Rebecca McNutt

    The way that this book combines genetic science, the crime fiction genre and humor together was really original, and it was fun to read.
