Glasgow’s melting. The temperature is rising and so is the murder rate. Douglas Brodie, ex-policeman, ex-soldier and newest reporter on the Glasgow Gazette, has no shortage of material for his crime column. But even Brodie balks at his latest subject – a rapist who has been tarred and feathered by a balaclava-clad group. Brodie soon discovers a link between this horrific act and a series of brutal beatings.
As violence spreads and the bodies pile up, Brodie and advocate Samantha Campbell are entangled in a web of deception and savagery. Brodie is swamped with stories for the Gazette. But how long before he and Sam become the headline?

I haven't read the print version but I thoroughly enjoyed the Audiobook.
Kept me interested from the start with multiple plotlines and the romantic side was fairly subdued. All of the threads came together neatly at the end and tied in with the first Brodie novel.
No spoilers: the ending was very good.
Yes although that wasn't possible.
I'm looking forward to listening to books 3 and 4 in the series.
"slow moving with padding"
See below in additional comments.
The story was very slow to get moving .. and to be honest by then I wasn't all that interested to find out who dun it. I won't be reading any more of this author's works though I am sure he has a faithful readership so won't miss me!
"Gordon Ferris does it again. Fantastic story."
I would consider it better because the narrator takes on each character and you become part of the book.
Brodie was my favourite character as he can mix with any class of person.
I have listened to other performances of Angus King narrating Complicity by Ian Banks and also others by Gordon Ferris. I know if Angus is narrating I will enjoy the book, he puts so much emotion and feeling into the characters that they become alive.
Very much so.
