A great book by a fine writer
This was the first book I had read by Gillian Galbraith. She is a Scottish crime writer who was a lawyer before she turned her hand to writing. Galbraith was born and brought up near Haddington, East Lothian, Scotland. She practiced until 1999 as an advocate (barrister) and specialised in cases involving medical negligence. For a while, Galbraith was the legal correspondent for The Scottish Farmer. She has also written on legal matters for The Times newspaper published in London, England. The author’s protagonist, DS Alice Rice, is based in Edinburgh.
Blood in the Water was the first crime novel by Gillian Galbraith and was published in 2007. It is the first of her Alice Rice Mysteries.
