In the Woods
6.  In the Woods by Tana French

Exile
8.  Exile by Denise Mina

Garnethill
9.  Garnethill by Denise Mina
The list author says:

Used & New from: $1.11
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (80 customer reviews)

Field of Blood
10.  Field of Blood by Denise Mina
The list author says:
  "After a reviewer observed that Mina's previous series, the Garnethill books, were a realistic portrayal of poverty in Scotland, she responded by creating a new series set in one of the poorest neighborhoods in the country. The series follows the career of Paddy Meehan, a young reporter who doubles as a detective."
$6.75   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (54 customer reviews)
