The Long Drop by Denise Mina (Chapter 1 exclusive)

The Long Drop by Denise Mina
Genre: Crime, Mystery
Source: Netgalley

I've got the chance to read the first chapter of the new Denise Mina book thanks to Netgalley, from the Alex Morrow series. I have to say that this is my first book of this series, but is a stand alone book, so no problem at all! :)

"This story happens in the old boom city, crowded, wild-west, chaotic. This city is commerce, unfettered. It centres around the docks and the river, and it is all function. It dresses like the Irish women: head to toe in black, hair covered, eyes down."

In this chapter we meet William Watt, who seems to need a lawyer, but not any lawyer, a very expensive one! Did he kill anyone?
There's Peter Manuel too, a professional criminal who says he knows something about the Burnside Murders, and that seems to interest very much to William... Would it be true? Or is it just another street without ending?
Just one chapter but I want to know more! This is a crime mystery written with some delightful words that will catch you from the first page!
Denise has enchanted me with only one chapter, what will she do with a full book?
