A cold February morning in Scotland commences with the discovery of a body, as Chief Executive Hector Mathewson is found dead within the cask room of his own distillery.
D.C.I. Alex Warren needs to balance his own turbulent personal life while directing the hunt for the murderer. Their plentiful suspects have motives ranging from greed and nationalism to adultery and revenge.
A tartan noir thriller set in Glasgow, A Measure of Trouble is the second book in the Alex Warren Murder Mysteries series by Zach Abrams. This is a standalone novel, and can be enjoyed even if you haven't read other books in the series.
What readers are saying about A Measure of Trouble:
- Great dialogue, unique plot and clever humour. A Measure of Trouble is a book with such a generous helping of twists that it make for a total page turner
- Until Zach came around, I never actually read a mystery before. I'm so happy that my introduction to this genre was by this talented author
- Abrams has a wonderful capacity to bring readers into the personal lives of Alex and Sandra, who are full-blooded and sympathetic characters struggling with issues
- This novel is well written, well-structured and, what I really enjoyed about it, the plot develops on several levels and the characters and events are frequently presented with a dry sense of humour, which makes it hard to put this novel down
