Where the Bodies Are Buried is the latest work from Scottish crime writer Christopher Brookmyre, best known for his comic crime novels.

It takes a little bit (or it took me a little bit) to get used to the accents/dialects in "Glasca," as it is called. But this is a terrific mystery in the end. Twisty plotting moves right along. Fine characters who I am eager to learn more about. On to book 2 in the series and here's hoping there are more to come after that.

This is one of the best books I've read so far this year.
