Reviews

  • "Angry, vital and unputdownable, The Long Drop’s themes of self-deception resonate long after the final page. This is crime fiction at its very best"

    Joseph Knox, author of Sirens
  • "Not a single word is wasted in this beautifully written novel. Unsettling, evocative and staggeringly good, it is possibly Mina’s finest achievement"

    Daily Express
  • "A wonderfully atmospheric, unsettling read."

    Louise Rhind-Tutt, i
  • "Deeply unsettling and thought provoking in all the best ways"

    Doug Johnstone, Big Issue
  • "The Long Drop is an exceptional book. The pages reek of fifties Glasgow, forming an oppressive backdrop to a true crime story that fascinates and appals from start to finish. Mina’s prose cuts to the bone, laying bare the prideful wickedness of men in a tale that is as often touching as it is frightening. A feast of a crime novel."
