    1. A very mixed bag, this the best are Chris Brookmyre very funny and Val McDermid, but some are duff Not sure how the writers were selected, as there were some here who seem never to have read a detective novel and some who had a very thin record of publication However, this was before some recent Scottish crime novelists began publishing perhaps the authors should have waited

    2. A bit pedestrian The new in the title is relative to the year of publication, which was 1999 In some ways this collection was literary propaganda, part of the then effort to promote Scottish literature, and reading the blurbs of the authors you notice that they were nearly all recent recipients of awards So rather than celebrating great stories regardless of the author s status, this is a collection of stories by writers that the editors and publishers wanted to celebrate Good stories here for [...]

    3. This is series of short stories written by different Scottish authours about crime The only one that I liked in this series was the short story by Ian Rankin possibly because he is the only one I have been reading The book gets a 2 rating only because of this one story, otherwise it would have been a 1.

    4. Interesting mix of stories, with a lot of big name writers from Scottish literature I found a lot of them very much darker than most crime fiction perhaps because some of these writers are not habituated to the genre Janice Galloway s story was horrific But then, I m a bit of a coward and tend to prefer bloodless murders.
