A face turned up towards the window, sickly pale, whiter than snow. Tania did not move This book was first published in 1981 as Hidden Faces but, having read it, I think The Man With No Face a far better title.

A face turned up towards the window, sickly pale, whiter than snow. It was a face she knew, a EXCERPT: She gave a slight start as a door slammed somewhere in the depths of the building. This book was first published in 1981 as Hidden Faces but, having read it, I think The Man With No Face a far better title. It seems odd to me to classify The Man With No Face, set in the winter of 1979 in Brussels, as historical fiction, but it is set in very different times from which we live today.

When a man is found with his face blown off, the Glasgow P Division .I started this book - about the boys and gurrrls of P Division tackling the murder of someone who's had his face shot off - with enormously high expectations, and was immensely disappointed. The Ed McBain-homage element is assuredly there - there's even a passage about the city being a woman - but.

When a man is found with his face blown off, the Glasgow P Division detectives quickly establish his identity. But the mystery surrounding his death only deepens.

That's why Scotland's Peter Turnbull has quietly become the best in the business. His detectives at P Division in Glasgow are a credible mixture of wisdom and humanity, doing the dog work and coming up with the occasional flashes of insight that open new doors. To slow down identification of the body, Turnbull's 11th book opens with the discovery of a man with his face blown off. But Sergeant Ray Sussock, bone weary and ready for retirement, recognizes the clothes as those given released prisoners after lengthy sentences.

This is apparently the last book in Turnbull's excellent police procedural series set in Glasgow. For me Peter Turnbull mixes interesting characters in his policemen with very detailed descriptions of exactly how P division works. I find some of the postmortem details a little gruesome, but enjoyed the mortuary attendant's outlook on life. As procedurals go, up there with the front-runners.

'Engrossingly readable, reinforcing Turnbull's claim to be the best of our homegrown police proceduralists' - GUARDIAN 'Few can rival Turnbull for dire authenticity' - OBSERVER When a man is found in Glasgow's prosperous West End district, his face blown off by a point-blank-range shooting, the P Division detectives quickly establish the identity of the Man with No Face. Establishing an identity, though, is easier than penetrating the mystery surrounding this killing - a mystery that deepens at every turn. Amid all the murkiness, the only thing that seems clear is that P Division has become involved in one of the most complex cases it has ever come up against - and the most dangerous.

If you want to be unsure of who the killer is or want a Hollywood main character Peter Turnbull is not for you, but if you want a well written book about a police squad solving crime and dealing with life then track down every one of his books you can.

For me Peter Turnbull mixes interesting characters in his policemen with very detailed descriptions of exactly how P division works. There are many subtle details about his policemen that add colour to the tale. I find some of the postmortem details a little gruesome, but enjoyed the mortuary attendant's outlook on life. The interrelated crimes in this book gradually come into the open. The interrelationships of the crimes are complex.
If you should wish to kidnap someone, in Scotland, and be reasonably certain of getting the ransom money without police interference there is a quite detailed description of how to do it. Also a very safe way to launder money. I was interested to read about the role of the collator, I had known about them before but this story showed how important the meta-data really is as the pieces fit slowly together.
A satisfying book to read.

MYSTERY

This is apparently the last book in Turnbull's excellent police procedural series set in Glasgow. Det. Sgt. Ray Sussock is soon to reach retirement, as a very tired man. As ths book opens, he's coming off the night shift and because of the ending of daylight savings time during his shift, he's had to work an extra hour. But with minutes to go, he's called out on a homicide case. The body of a man has been found in a park, a gunshot entry wound in the back of the skull; the exit wound accounts for the descriptive title of this book.

The dead man was a small time crook, fresh out of prison after doing time for a jewel robbery that most people think was way out of his league. But he served his time without incident and said nothing about the case to anyone.

The case is pursued with competence, and some luck, by the P Division, who follow its trail into some disturbing events in the past.

I had a hard time putting this book down. It was a compelling story, with well-developed characters and a solid plot. I was left wanting another installment in the P Division saga, but apparently that is not to be.

This is the first time I have read anything from Peter Turnbull. Not only does he give a beautiful and detailed description of the area around the mystery, he keeps you in suspense all they way through. I'm off to pull another one of his mysteries off the shelf!!!
