Publisher's Summary

Driftnet is a thrilling crime novel by Lin Anderson and the first novel in the series about forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod.

Summoned in the early hours of the morning to a Glasgow flat, forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod is confronted by a horrific crime scene. A teenage boy has been found mutilated and strangled to death by a vicious killer.

But her grim task of scanning for evidence is made even more unsettling than normal by the boy’s remarkable resemblance to her – and by the fact that she gave up a baby boy for adoption 17 years ago....

Overcome by guilt, Rhona sets out to find the boy’s killer and establish whether the young victim is her long-lost son. In doing so, she finds herself immersed in an investigation that seeks to expose a dark underworld that preys on the young and vulnerable. As the case builds it soon becomes clear that some very powerful men have a lot to lose if she succeeds, and everything to gain if she dies.

Characters u can care about, good story, suspense

This is the first decent crime story I've read in quite a while. I loved it: characters u care about, a pretty horrible crime but not too graphic, suspense. That's all I ask, but it is not easy to find! Her books r a little shorter than some I've read, but those 12 hr books, if they're full of annoying filler such as reminders of someone's continual physical or mental pain or ruminating --u know, I can do without that drivel. I read this genre for escape, and have enough of my own pain and unwanted thoughts! Ok, so thanks to Lin Anderson for a very entertaining book and to the narrator for her lovely delivery of the story. I bought all the rest of this series available on Audible during the sale. This review is written after listening to only 2 books. Hope the magic holds.
