Publisher's Summary

DI Colin Anderson is having a bad week. His conviction of paedophile Skelpie Fairbairn is declared unsafe, putting Fairbairn back on Glasgow's streets. Then a succession of strange crimes - a gangster torched alive; a teenage boy tortured then dropped off a bridge; a police suicide; a young girl tied to the river bank and left for the tide – leave Anderson with his hands full and questioning whether this array of evils are all, somehow, linked.

    Story
    "Gruesome - unfortunately."

    This book is gruesome, not only because of what happens in the story, but also because it's a comment on the world we now live in.
    I can't say it was enjoyable - it was gripping though.
    I wouldn't recommend it to the fainthearted, but it isn't a horror book in the classic sense.

    Story
    "A new way to kill people"

    I stumbled across this writer by reading an amazon review. I don't know why more fuss has not been made about her books. This is the latest in her series of books and I downloaded all 3 available on Audible. What a pity the first in the series is not available.
    A worthwhile addition to Tartan Noir

    Story
    "Smoke and mirrors"

    The story moves from action to action and is gripping from beginning to end. The violence is gory and graphic but seems to be in keeping with the story; it is not gratuitous as it makes the motivation of Anderson and his team understandable. By using time markers instead of chapters it underlines how much happen in just 24 hours!

    The Scotland of this story is well described with lochs, glens and midges; a nice touch and a good backdrop that contrasts with the urban landscape of Glasgow.

    The narrator, James MacPherson, is excellent, giving the characters their personality through their speech. A very enjoyable narrative and detective story which questions right and wrong, asking questions about justice so all in all a satisfactory tale.

    "Brilliant"

    This novel is so sophisticated, complex, gritty and fast paced that I have immediately listened to it twice!!
