Publisher's Summary

There's a hit man in Glasgow: unpaid and angry, he's decided to settle his own debts....
Elsewhere in the city, Marianne Brogan can't sleep. She's plagued by a nightmare: someone in the shadows, whispering threats, stalking her every move. To make matters worse, Marianne can't get hold of her brother, Billy. Despite knowing some shady characters from Glasgow's underworld, Billy's always been there for her - until now.
DCI Lorimer and his team are faced with a string of seemingly unconnected but professional killings. Without witnesses or much conclusive evidence to build a case, the officers are drawing a blank. Criminal psychologist Solly Brightman is off the case due to budget cuts. But Solly is more closely connected to the murders than he could possibly know....
And as the hit man plans a bloody ransom to get his fee, the race is on to find out just who hired him - and who's next on the hit list.

Good crime story but treackly writing about the central characters personal lives.

The author also gives you too many nudges toward the ever so perfect and heroic character of the protagonist. I'm not sure why I disliked the narration, but I did. Others may enjoy it.

Entertaining , but with editing issues.

Another excellent tale from Alex Gray. I like the way the stories interweave amongst the main characters as well as the villains .
My only complaint is the poor editing, this is the third book to either jump or repeat the story on several occasions. On this particular book there is a lot of hissing. The publishing house would do well to address these issues as they spoil the enjoyment of a cracking story.
