“A gritty debut novel from a new writer on the Tartan Noir scene, this tells the story of a month in 1973, as Glasgow is the scene of a number of gruesome murders, and Detective Harry McCoy is on the trail of the killer. The tension keeps you turning the pages, as he uncovers links to gangs, the growing heroin addiction problem in the city and the possible involvement of Scotland’s elite families in the murky goings-on.”
