Games People Play by Owen Mullen

MoMo Book Diary enjoyed Games People Play, Owen Mullen’s brilliant novel set in Glasgow.

The book is mainly set in Glasgow and I loved the way the author used the language, and could even hear the rough glaswegian accents coming through.

This well written story had me hooked from the introduction and on tender-hooks through to the nail-biting conclusion.

Private Investigator, Charlie Cameron is a complex character which the author demonstrates though the telling of his back story and look forward to reading more of his investigations.

Thank you Owen Mullen for the opportunity to read and review this breath-taking novel.


On a warm summer’s evening thirteen month old Lily Hamilton is abducted from Ayr beach in Scotland, taken while her parents are yards away. Three days later, the distraught father turns up at Glasgow PI Charlie Cameron’s office and begs him to help. Mark Hamilton believes he knows who has stolen his daughter. And why.

Against his better judgement Charlie gets involved in a case he would be better off without. But when a child’s body is discovered on Fenwick Moor, then another in St Andrews, the awful truth dawns: there is a serial killer out there whose work has gone undetected for decades. Baby Lily may be the latest victim of a madman.

For Charlie it’s too late, he can’t let go. His demons won’t let him.

The stunning first novel featuring Glasgow PI Charlie Cameron. Games People Play will have the reader guessing to the very last page.

In between he graduated from Strathclyde University with a Masters in Tourism and a degree in Marketing, moved to London and worked as a rock musician, session singer and songwriter, andhad a hit record in Japan with a band he refuses to name; on occasion he still performs. He returned to Scotland to run a management consultancy and a marketing agency. He is an Arsenal supporter and a serious foodie. A gregarious recluse, he and his wife, Christine, split their time between Glasgow – where the Charlie Cameron books are set – and their villa in the Greek Islands.
