    1. Margaret on said:

      Not bad. Published in 1989 so a little out of date.Was a bit pissed off that a major Scottish author was not included. Bill Knox had been a best selling author for 30 years when this book was published but his characters of Colin Thane and Phil Moss of the Strathclyde Police didn't get a mention, nor did Webb Carrick of Scottish Fisheries Protection.Interesting subject matter, but the writing was a trifle dull.
