Winner of the 2022 Edgar Award for Best Paperback Original
The third dark and gripping Harry McCoy thriller from the most exciting new voice in Scottish noir.
July 1973. The Glasgow drug trade is booming and Bobby March, homegrown rock hero, has overdosed in a downtown hotel. Alice Kelly, meanwhile, is thirteen years old, alone, and missing. Harry McCoy is quietly asked to find his boss's niece, who's fallen in with a dodgy crowd and hasn't been seen for days.
McCoy has a hunch that there's a connection between all three events, but the clock is running, the papers are out for blood, and the department wants results.
Alan Parks worked in the music business for decades and his familiarity with the industry together with his intimate knowledge of the deeply noir 1970s Glasgow--its music scene, hard men, political infighting, class divisions--make this a pitch-perfect installment in the lauded Harry McCoy series.
