#SPOILER ALERT#
I actually was sure that the villain was going to be the one from the first book but I was glad to find out at the end that he had died in the hills after his escape.

I did like the inclusion of the dog in this book. Of course, I'm a sucker for any intelligent animal in a book.

I am sure hoping that in the third book Rhona and Sean get back together. I'm also a sucker for a sax player and he seems like a much better match for her than an incipient alcoholic.

#SPOILERS OVER#

Rhona ranks up there with Temperance Brennan for intelligent yet empathetic women detectives and I'm looking forward to reading more of her books. ( )

This second Rhona MacLeod mystery, TORCH by Lin Anderson, is very gritty, full of twists and noir elements.
A series of arson attacks in Glasgow and Edinburgh pull Dr. MacLeod into a forensic investigation. New characters are introduced - Severino MacRae, Chief Fire Investigator in Edinburgh; young teen, Jazz, who hopes to investigate and avenge the death of his friend, Karen; and Karen’s dog, Emps (Emperor). Familiar faces return - Chrissy, Bill Wilson and Sean.
A very readable narrative and crime drama. ( )

I liked the first book in this series but this one didn't seem to flow as well as the first. I wasn't sure what was going on with the story and where they wanted to go with it. It's readable, with some nasty stuff going on occasionally but I felt vaguely disappointed in it. It lacked flow and the characters didn't feel as solid as they could have, I didn't really feel peril or tension in the story.

I will try at least one more in the series but I'm hoping it improves. ( )

Torch by Lin Anderson is the second book in her Rhona MacLeod series, and frankly, I found this entry rather mediocre. In this outing Dr. MacLeod, a forensic scientist, is on the trail of an arsonist. Evidence suggests that fires in both Glasgow and, forty miles away, Edinburgh are being set by the same person. She and the Chief Fire Inspector of Edinburgh must put aside their differences and try to work together to solve the puzzle.

I found the story a little disjointed, and at times the plot severely stretched my imagination. The author obviously does her research when it comes to the medical facts and figures, but the story could have done with some tightening and clarity. A warning for animal lovers, the book contains violence and injury to a couple of dogs.

If it wasn’t for the fact that I have the third book in the series sitting on my shelves, I doubt I would be continuing on with this series, but as I do, I hope the next book is more like the first, which I remember as being quite good. ( )
