Maureen O'Donnell is facing the darkest episode of her life. She owes more than she makes in a year in back taxes; Angus Farrell, the psychologist who murdered her boyfriend, is up for trial; and her abusive father has arrived back in Glasgow. On top of it all, she has become embroiled in someone else's family feud. Ella McGee, an elderly stall holder at the fleamarket where Maureen is selling illegally imported cigarettes, is bringing a case against her son in the small claims court. When Ella dies in hospital after a brutal beating, Maureen finds herself becoming involved. Soon she too is under threat--and this time she has very few protectors.

Rich characterization and an improbable heroine makes a great read.

Mina's Garnethill Trilogy comes to a close in the aptly titled Resolution. Maureen O'Donnell, still with plenty of problems of her own, adds another investigation to her resume. A flea market stall-mate is injured and then killed and her son is a scary, shifty character. With the help of pals Leslie and Kilty she investigates the supposed health center owner and finds him involved in trafficking. Determined to see him get his comeuppance she exposes him while also dealing with her own problems of the upcoming trial of her boyfriend's killer and reappearance of her abusive father. More great gritty, back-alley, boozing, smoking action. While the Glasgow of the other installments was the usual dark, freezing and wet, this Glasgow is even more surreal with glaring, unrelenting sunlight, sweat and sunburn. Great stuff.
