FINALIST FOR THE 2022 MCILVANNEY PRIZE
Detective Harry McCoy returns in the suspenseful, atmospheric fifth instalment in Alan Park's internationally bestselling thriller series.
Glasgow is a city in mourning. An arson attack on a hairdresser's has left five dead. Tempers are frayed and sentiments running high.
When three youths are charged the city goes wild. A crowd gathers outside the courthouse but as the police drive the young men to prison, the van is rammed by a truck, and the men are grabbed and bundled into a car. The next day, the body of one of them is dumped in the city centre. A note has been sent to the newspaper: one down, two to go.
Detective Harry McCoy has twenty-four hours to find the kidnapped boys before they all turn up dead, and it is going to mean taking down some of Glasgow's most powerful people to do it.
"A series that no crime fan should miss: dangerous, thrilling, but with a kind voice to cut through the darkness."--Scotsman
