Publisher's Summary

DI Colin Anderson is having a bad week. His conviction of paedophile Skelpie Fairbairn is declared unsafe, putting Fairbairn back on Glasgow's streets. Then a succession of strange crimes - a gangster torched alive; a teenage boy tortured then dropped off a bridge; a police suicide; a young girl tied to the river bank and left for the tide – leave Anderson with his hands full and questioning whether this array of evils are all, somehow, linked.

Gruesome - unfortunately.

This book is gruesome, not only because of what happens in the story, but also because it's a comment on the world we now live in.
I can't say it was enjoyable - it was gripping though.
I wouldn't recommend it to the fainthearted, but it isn't a horror book in the classic sense.

A new way to kill people

I stumbled across this writer by reading an amazon review. I don't know why more fuss has not been made about her books. This is the latest in her series of books and I downloaded all 3 available on Audible. What a pity the first in the series is not available.
A worthwhile addition to Tartan Noir
