    One thought on “Open Wounds”

    1. The book opens with an odd assortment of people at a funeral. We're not privy to the identity of the narrator or who has died but it's clear they were both once familiar with what it means to be in "the Life".Flashback 2 years & we meet Davie McCall, hard man & enforcer for Big Rab McClymont. Rab runs a criminal empire & they've known each other for decades. But lately Davie has begun to question his choices & wonder if it's possible to walk away before he loses what is left of h [...]

    2. This is a romp through the Glasgow underworld that was electrifying! This is 4th in a series of 4, and I really, really, wish I had read the first three.Davie McCall is what we would call an enforcer. Although he’s ruthless, he has a code. He doesn’t hurt women, or children, or animals. He’s been working for his old friend, Big Rab, for years, and now he wants out. He’s tired of all the violence, tired of the life. McCall finds himself investigating a crime that took place several years [...]

    3. It is more like 4.5 stars.Davie McCall is a bad man. A very feared man, but a bad man with some principles and his own code of honor. And after all those years of violence, all those ghosts and memories now he wants to get out of that Life.And it all starts, or should i say, it all ends when he decides to investigate a 5 year old violent crime.Open Wounds is the fourth and last book of the "Davie McCall" series, although i did not read the previous books i did not feel that i am struggling to un [...]

    4. Genuine Tartan NoirDavie McCall is a gangster with a moral code – he doesn't hurt women, children or 'civilians'. But that doesn't stop him from hurting other people – badly, when they've done something that crosses one of his personal lines. He's always felt in control of his violence though, until recently, when he suddenly found he was enjoying it. Now he wants out of the 'Life', but he's scared – not of what his boss might do to him, but scared that he won't be able to change, won't be [...]

    5. I received a copy of this book via Luath Press/ Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Before I even start my review, I have to give a HUGE thanks to my #Twinnie, Sharon of Chapter In My Life who encouraged me to bump this author’s books up my TBR…definitely one of my better decisions! Woohoo!Right…so now my thoughts! I am not sure if I can even express how much I adore #DavieMcCall and this series! Set in Glasgow the themes of redemption; change; haunting memories; betrayal; loyalty a [...]

    6. I read Open Wounds with a heavy heart as I know that it's the last in the Davie McCall series. But what a finale of a book! Once again I found myself dragged into the streets of Glasgow, through the familiar East End and the well kent faces of Davie McCall's associates in "The Life". Davie wants out of The Life, he's afraid that the Dark will take over him completely and he will have nowhere else to go but is it as easy as just upping sticks and leaving? The "dark Knight" is still out there and [...]

    7. What a cracker of a series finale! Having read the first three books already and knowing this was the last of the Davie McCall series I was expecting something special and Douglas Skelton did not disappoint. I don't suppose I've ever given much thought to how someone like Davie McCall would be able to get out of the Life but I was completely hooked by the storyline and willing him on to succeed. This is a great book and I strongly recommend it but for the full impact it should be read as intende [...]

    8. Davie McCall is not a nice guy, he does bad things to bad people but I loved reading about him. In Open Wounds Davie is tiring of the Life (working as right hand man to one of Glasgow’s gangsters) and is thinking of getting out. But the Life is all Davie knows and walking away will not be easy.McCall has had a tough life, people close to him have been hurt and have tried to hurt him. He is weary and events in Open Wounds seem to be driving him towards ‘retirement’ from the vicious life he [...]

    9. Synopsis/blurb….Davie McCall is tired. Tired of violence, tired of the Life. He's always managed to stay detached from the brutal nature of his line of work, but recently he has caught himself enjoying it. In the final instalment in the Davie McCall series old friends clash and long buried secrets are unearthed as McCall investigates a brutal five-year-old crime. Davie wants out, but the underbelly of Glasgow is all he has ever known. Will what he learns about his old ally Big Rab McClymont be [...]

    10. It was with a bit of a sad feeling that I started this book knowing that it was to be the last in the series. I have read and thoroughly enjoyed the previous three books and have to admit to having a bit of a soft spot for Davie McCall developed as I have got to know him over the time we have spent together. It is this reason that I wouldn't recommend reading any of these books as stand alone (as I have done in the past). Rather I believe that to get the very best from the series it really is be [...]

    11. Anyone who knows me personally, or through reading my blog, knows that I hate reading books out-of-order or part way through a series if there have been previous books with the same characters before it. It really unsettles me and throws me out my reading mojo.Yet, here I was agreeing to read Skelton’s Open Wounds which is book 4 in a 4 book series and I hadn’t read any of the previous 3 books! I’m not sure why I did this to myself. I knew that it was going to stress me out and put me a li [...]

    12. This is the final installment in the Davie McCall series and sadly I started with it. How did I miss the first three?! There was enough background woven into the story that it was a great read on its own, but I really want to go back and start at the beginning now! Great characters and storylines. I'm really interested to meet Davie in the beginning and follow his development and how he came to the place he finds himself in this story, wanting out of the Life.The Life is the life of an enforcer [...]

    13. Well what can I say? The fourth and final book in a most fabulous series. It didn't disappoint and tied up every loose end of the story that had unfolded over 3 decades. I can't emphasis enough how well written this book was, and how much it really grabbed me emotionally as a reader. It's a true skill when an author can cause you to feel so much for the main character. I would thoroughly recommend to fans of the crime genre, and the fact that it is set in Scotland made it even more special for m [...]

    14. Reminiscent of Rebus stories.Davie McCall is a hardened detective who has had enough of the underworld of Glasgow.This is the final installment of a series of books about McCall and loose ends seem to be getting tied up.Haven't read previous novels in this series, but I suppose the people in this story will feature in those.Will have to catch up with them soon.I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Luath via Netgalley in return for an honest unbiased review.

    15. Thank you very much for permission to read this book. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. Douglas Skelton is one of my favourite authors and Open Wounds did not disappoint. Davie Mc Call is a great lead character and the plot was fast paced. Set in Glasgow, it was gritty and believable and full of twists and turns to keep the reader interested. I was sad at the ending but this was the best book in the series. I would definitely recommend it to crime fiction lovers.

    16. I was very excited to get hold of this, the fourth and final Davie McCall book. Skelton keeps the suspense high with lots of humour through the grit. I remarkable series, a must for anyone who knows Glasgow. The Black Knight is the big bad in this one and it all goes fucking down. Pretty gutted it's all over but I've got Skelton's next book: The Dead Don't Boogie now to look forward to.

    17. Review to follow on crimeworm.WordPress/A bloody fantastic novel. Something every fan of Tartan Noir should read.
