A 29-year-old man lives alone in his Glasgow flat. The telephone rings; a casual conversation but behind this a job offer.
The clues are there if you know to look for them. He is an expert. A loner. Freelance. Another job is another job, but what if this organization wants more?
A meeting at a club. An offer. A target: Lewis Winter, a necessary sacrifice that will be only the first step in an all-out war between crime syndicates, the likes of which hasn't been seen for decades.
It's easy to kill a man. It's hard to kill a man well. People who do it well know this. People who do it badly find out the hard way. The hard way has consequences.

A British Answer To Elmore Leonard? Its That Good!
This is a tale of contract murder, written in the third person with great skill. Elmore Leonard created clever and flawed characters with quick wit and a love for violence. McKay delivers much the same here.
A middle aged, mid level drug dealer is attempting to steal territory from one mobster with the backing of a rival gang. His name is Lewis Winter and his death is necessary. So a quiet, somewhat apathetic hit man is given the contract to kill Mr. Winter. But is Lewis' murder really neccesary? Do yourself a favor and buy this book!

Gritty and methodical
The plot moves ploddingly but the action when it comes is intense and brutal. Looking forward to the second in the series to get a deeper glimpse in to the streets of Glasgow.
