An unputdownable read!
I had been out of the habit of reading books but decided to read Hell to Pay while on holiday after not having read a book for over a year. I started it mid morning and the next thing I knew was that it was starting to get dark outside and I had read the whole book in one sitting and was thirsty and hungry!
Do not read this book on a train as you will miss your stop!
I won't ruin the story for you by saying too much. It grabs you straight from the start when you wonder where Nancy is and what has happened to her. Finding out she is in a clinic having been seriously ill and deeply shocked by the murder of her parents and an attack on herself which should have left her dead, she decides to make herself strong and once released from the clinic, she sets out to investigate the crime herself having no faith in the well meaning inspector who tries to help her. Uncovered facts closer to home she is struggling to recall may hold the key...
This is a gripping read and I loved the author's grim Scottish humour which made me laugh aloud at times. Read this! You won't be disappointed. Hurry up and write another one please Jenny!
