     FIELD OF BLOOD - DENISE MINA

Paddy Meehan worked for the Scottish Daily News.  However, she was not happy with her position there.  She was really just a gopher.  She wanted to be a journalist.   Her family would like for her to get married to Sean and raise a family. 

The body of three-year-old Brian Wilcox is found.  He was tortured and beaten to death.  Two young boys were responsible for the killing of Brian. 

Paddy soon discovers something that could change her life.  One of the boys implicated in the killing of Brian is Sean's cousin.  Now, all of a sudden, Paddy's job prospects seem much better.  This could be her one big chance to be a journalist.  However, did she really want to get involved at such a high cost to her family?

Paddy begins an investigation along with the help of a reporter.  What does she discover?

This is the first book of a new series.  Denise Mina has created a great character in Paddy Meehan.  She is someone who wants to be her own person - to do what she wants to do - not what everyone else wants her to do.  This book is a captivating read and we look forward to more from Denise Mina.  This book is highly recommended.
