Item description for Hideous Gifts by Liz Laighton...

Guin Catto sits mourning the death of her ancient dog. But her younger dog tries to cheer her by bringing a gift of some object he's found. Naturally it isn't just any object: it is the arm of a girl, a teenager who's disappeared from Hornbridge Academy. The case seems to Armie to be mixed up with the suicide of a twelve-year-old boy. Then again, it could be linked with sadistic attacks on pet cats. The victim's stepfather insists she was killed by her teenage boyfriend, Ross. But Ross too believes he knows who killed her. Or rather he's narrowed it down to two. But which is it? There's another horror he's certain about: his little brother Darren is evil. But Ross isn't about to tell anyone. Now his girlfriend's killer is after him; to make matters worse, if such things could be, his art teacher thinks he's rubbish. While Armie and Fabe fail to avert a second murder, Ross goes on the run. He's down on the coast, in fact he's at sea in a winter storm as pitiless as the killer. But wind and tide are drawing Armie and the killer together.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hideous Gifts?

Juicy Intrigue, Dry Wit  Oct 18, 2007
This murder mystery is set in rural scotland. The author has managed to use just enough dialect, but not too much, for this american reader. It's a police procedural, set in a place where the police are part of a small community- it's warm and humorous. But it becomes unexpectedly dramatic. The scottish countryside is evoked very well in the story- rugged and treacherous- a la the 39 steps. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants genuine literary value in a mystery.
