Driftnet is where it all began for police forensic examiner Dr Rhona MacLeod and was originally published in 2003. Fifteen-years later Lin Anderson and Rhona are still going strong with eleven books to date. Having read several books much further into the series I really enjoyed seeing how Rhona had developed and finding out her back story. Even in this first outing Lin Anderson manages to combine revealing forensic depth with a horrific crime, all the while negotiating the personal events of he [...]

This is the first in the Dr. Rhona MacLeod, forensic scientist, series.A young lad is found mutilated and dead in a flat in Glasgow. There is a striking resemblance between Rhona and the victim, made all the more difficult by the fact that Rhona gave her son up for adoption 17 years previously. There is a similarity in ages between the victim and Rhona’s son. Rhona sets out to identify the victim, ascertain if he is her son, find the killer and if the victim is not her son, Rhona wants to find [...]

Enjoyed reading this but felt a bit short changed - like it was all a bit of an anti-climax, more kept threatening to happen.

It took me FOREVER to finish this book. I started it, was about 10% in when I realized how much detail was involved, & decided I couldn't read and have wine at the same time! So I decided to wait to read it when I had time to really pay attention & just never came back to it Finally as I recovered from surgery, I decided to pick it back up and finished it in about a day and a half.It was a very detailed story, but the details painted each character, every scene just perfectly. As a reade [...]

I read this book, as I do all my books, on my kindle and I have never seen so many errors when reading a book on kindle.rases duplicated, words missed out enjoyment of the book was spoiled by this - otherwise I would have given it four stars.

Set in Glasgow, medical examiner Rhona McLeod finds herself part of an investigation of pedophiles, politicians, and her own past. Anderson is a good writer in the tradition of Ian Rankin. Good characters, plot, and pacing. Definitely worth a read.

A good book of its kind, though with a rather disturbing theme.

Not a bad book, but not a great one either.If you've not read any of Lin Anderson before I suggest reading one of her later books and coming back to this one.

Собственно, рецепт увлекательного детективного чтива стар, как мир - смешать в определенной пропорции насилие и секс, добавить ярких персонажей, изложить хорошим слогом - и, раз, готово! Насилие в данном детективе присутствует (4, точнее, почти 6 убийств). Секса тоже хватает П [...]

Set mainly in Glasgow the chief viewpoint character of Driftnet is Forensic Scientist Rhona MacLeod but many scenes are seen through the eyes of others. The case involves the murder of a teenager - with a startling resemblance to Rhona – who is apparently a rent boy. Anderson’s writing is fine enough but to my mind there were several factors which marred the reading experience. Typical of the protagonists in such novels Rhona has relationship problems but here her backstory is far too convol [...]

This is my first Lin Anderson book and I was drawn to her work via a review of one of her later books 'Reborn'. So I decided to start at the beginning of the series with 'Driftnet', a book that comes from a genre known as Tartan Noir, i.e. thrillers written by Scottish authors, of whom there are a 'goodly' number at the time of writing this.I found the book easy and quick to read and thought that the characters were adequately 'fleshed out' (but not extensively) and the story moved along at a sa [...]

Driftnet was Lin Anderson's first novel. It is quite short and very easy to read although it encompasses the disturbing subjects of paedophilia and political ambition. I met Lin Anderson when she gave a reading of another of her works in Stirling, Scotland. She is an intelligent, thoughtful writer whose research is detailed and precise. However the research is not forced upon the reader, nor does it impede an good story.In Driftnet forensic scientist Rhona Macleod explores more than a series of [...]

Edizione italiana da parte di Newton&Compton con il titolo: La bambina che giocava con il fuoco. (sigh)Ciofeca. Smilza, ma sempre ciofeca est.Cominciamo dal titolo che non ha niente a che vedere con il contenuto del libro. Il titolo originale é "Driftnet" che significa "Rete a strascico", secondo me un genio incompreso della casa editrice dopo non aver letto il libro, in nessuna lingua, inglese o italiano che sia, tanto non le capiva, illuminato improvvisamente nella buia notte neuronale in [...]

Je me suis ennuyée en lisant ce livre. J'ai eu l'impression de débarquer dans le deuxième ou troisième tome d'une série alors qu'il s'agit du tome 1 (je me suis renseignée). Les personnages font référence à des évènements passés ou des informations sur leur famille/amis, comme si le lecteur devait savoir de quoi ils parlent. C'est déroutant, et irritant.Les personnages ne sont pas attachants. L'héroine est un peu trop geignarde et hésitante à mon goût alors qu'on nous la présen [...]

DRIFTNET (Rhona MacLeod Book #1) by Lin Anderson is a very gritty Scotland noir. The setting is Glasgow and centers on a paedophile ring which seeks out and befriends young boys, then blackmails them for sex.Our main character is forensic scientist, Dr. Rhona MacLeod.I like the side stories here - Dr. MacLeod’s meeting the mysterious man she suspects may be the elusive ‘Simon’; her past affair with Edward; her co-worker and friend, Chrissy, with her family problems; police officer Bill Wil [...]

I liked this book to begin with. Then I got a bit fed up. Then it really picked up. And then, with an awful premonition I read the ending, and - just no. This is a great story, an excellent premise, and the setting is really well depicted - a Glasgow I know well. Rhona McLeod, the sort of MC is a good flawed protagonist I'd have liked to see more of, were it not for the ending of this book. Without giving anything away, the murder story and Rhona's tangled private life become inextricably mixed [...]

This book caught my eye at work, a guest was reading one of the books later on in the series. I was immediately intrigued; Rhona MacLeod is my mother's maiden name. So for that alone, I was going to read it. 4% in and I'm already enjoying it. I think I needed a wee break from fantasy. And it's in Scotland, based just two hours south from here. Even better! I've heard a lot of good things about the author but never thought of trying them because "why read about something that could happen to me t [...]

Sometimes we need to read books which push us out of our comfort zones—it’s part of what helps us learn and know we are alive. DRIFTNET was such a book for me. The fatalities in DRIFTNET are victims of paedophilia and Lin Anderson is one of those British authors with the talent to make one feel the awful perpetrators of such crimes are almost perfectly normal just like everyone else, nearly.DRIFTNET by Lin Anderson is a police procedural, the protagonist is forensic scientist Dr. Rhona MacLe [...]

This is the first of Lin Anderson's books I have read. The opening chapter regarding the dead boy bearing a resemblance to Rhona was a hook. I'm not sure this was the best book to start with as I didn't feel I was properly introduced to Rhona and her job. She spent more time away from the office.However it was a good enough storyline and will read some others. I've since read the reviews of others and found out this is our first introduction to Rhona. Well done Lin. You've left me wanting to kno [...]

I totally regret buying this book. Seriously. It was confusing. There was no resolution. I got curious because of the plot. It borders on the suspense genre. But what I totally disliked was the ending, the antagonists were not clear. The boy he found dead was not her child. The whole story seemed pointless. It was not dragging per se. Because I was hooked til the end. You will keep turning the pages because you would want to know what would happen next. So I kept turning the pages, and yet every [...]

Rhona MacLeod is a forensic scientst in Glasglow. She is looking into the death of a young rent boy found strangled. This book didn't much catch my fancy. There was a little too much of her love life being discussed and not enough of the actual mystery. This is the first book in this series. I will probably get the second one as I'm curious to see if the author focuses less on romance and more on the actual crime.

This is crime thriller set in Glasgow, centred around the work of a female crime scene operative, as she helps investigate the brutal murder of a young rent boy. Afer initially opening well, I was disappointed as the plot degenerated and only managed to keep on track because of the ineptitude of those investigating. Basically it seemed that everyone had a secret linked to the death and this kept them all from talking to each other, hence the crime went unsolved for far too long.

This is the first Lin Anderson book I have read, I know, a little late to the party, but it drew me in from the start.Its a gritty book about a very uncomfortable subject, paedophilia, but the descriptions of the victims, the police and the perpetrators were very well done and I couldn't put this book down. Looking forward to reading more of Lin Anderson's books.

I liked the characters, but thought that virtually none of them could hold down a job in the real world, too much doing what's interesting rather than what's needed. There were a couple of points in the plot where someone would go to see someone and I thought why not just call them. I'll read the next one and see how it goes.
