Summary

A 2011 Los Angeles Times Book Prize Nominee for Mystery/Thriller

A 2011 CWA Gold Dagger Nominee

When a notorious millionaire banker hangs himself, his death attracts no sympathy. The terrible legacy of a lifetime of selfishness is widespread but most acute among those he ought to be protecting: his family. 

Meanwhile, in a wealthy suburb of Glasgow, a young woman is found savagely murdered, leaving the community stunned. When Detective Inspector Alex Morrow, heavily pregnant with twins, is called in to investigate, she soon discovers that a tangled web of lies lurks behind the murder. It’s a web that will spiral through Alex’s own home, the local community, and ultimately right back to a swinging rope, hundreds of miles away. 

The End of the Wasp Season is an accomplished and compelling audiobook about a family’s power for damage—and redemption.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Mina] takes you so deep inside her troubled characters that long after you turn the last page, you wonder if you’ll ever get out again.” Kirkus Reviews
“Mina exhibits her usual thoughtful flair for tough female protagonists and morally complex suspects and victims.” Library Journal
“[A] stellar follow-up to Still Midnight.” Publishers Weekly
“There’s nothing like a Scots accent to give a sense of place, and Jane MacFarlane pulls listeners immediately into Glasgow’s murder squad…She allows the characters from different classes to unfold. Listeners also glimpse the author’s skill at eliciting sympathy for villains. The dialogue is smart, sharp, and clear despite the strong accents, and MacFarlane’s pace suits perfectly.” AudioFile
