When DI Anderson and DS Costello are called to investigate the discovery of a body in a Glasgow attic they soon identify the victim as a suspect in a decade-old case: the rape and attempted murder of a young student by two men. But where is the dead man's accomplice, 'Mr Click'? When another young woman is brutally attacked, detectives Anderson and Costello realise this psychopath has started working once more....
I am really pleased to have discovered Caro Ramsay. These are gripping, complex novels, where the main plot lines are carefully woven and developed and the sub stories, through the lives and characters of the squad that develop and conflict are all brilliantly dramatised. These details of a life always support, never detract from, the work of the novel, which is to desperately unravel and end the case. Short on food and sleep, the whole department, even the stray dog, move the plot onward, sometimes with the syncopation of great team work, sometimes despite themselves, and each other. I am, of course, downloading the next in the series right now!

I really enjoyed this book, good mystery, well written, the characters very strong. I thought the narrator was excellent, will listen to the author and narrator again.

Really enjoyed this. Narration was brilliant. One or two characters are a bit weak, didn't take much notice of those, in my opinion, completely unnecessary.
Overall, a good story, nice twists and turns. Wonder if you'll work out who-did-it?

Thoroughly recommend this book. it has everything in it you could wish for. Exciting until the last page. I thought I had guessed the plot several times only to be wrong. I felt I knew the characters that are so well described by James Macpherson, one of my favourite narrators. . This is the first book I have read/listened to by Caro Ramsay and I am away to download another.
