No Good Deed - Manda Scott ... colleague is tortured to death in another room. Orla is a woman who keeps her promises, and she promised the child that she would look after him, forever--and this she does, though Hell stands in her way. In this radical break with the intense, but comparably gentle, detective stories with which she started her career, Manda Scott gives us a full range of thriller experiences--brutal noir as the police try to persuade Glasgow's criminals to give up a torturer gang boss of whom everybody is afraid, Buchanesque wanderings through the snow-covered foothills of a remote mountain district and a sense of growing dread as we struggle to understand what made Tord Svensen the vicious killer he is, what Orla will have to learn to defeat him. No Good Deed is a meditation on vengeance and violence and their costs, and what it means to walk away and make other choices; it is one of the most remarkable thrillers of the year.

Boudica: Dreaming the Eagle - Manda ScottAncient history as it might have been (570 words)
by ladybracknell - written on 25/05/09 (Very useful, 29 readings)
I first came across Manda Scott when I read one of her crime novels, Stronger Than Death, which I thoroughly enjoyed, so I looked for other books she had written and found Boudica: Dreaming the Eagle, the first in her series about the life and times of Boudica or Boadicea as she was know when I was at school. Firstly, this book is very hard to categorise and doesn t fit entirely into the genre of Science Fiction/Fantasy but could also be described as a historical novel. Historically, there is no doubt that Boudica existed although details of her life are pretty sketchy and what is know was written by the Romans. Manda Scott has built on limited information about the ...
