‘Scottish crime-writing at its finest, with a healthy dose of plot twists and turns, bodies and plenty of brutality’ Sun

‘Another powerful tartan noir that packs a punch’ Peterborough Evening Telegraph

Incredibly difficult to put the book down . . . a guide through a world of tangled family politics, hostile takeovers, government-sanctioned killing, extortion and the seedier side of publishing . . . Quintin Jardine should be . . . your first choice!’ Scots magazine

Well constructed, fast-paced, Jardine’s narrative has many an ingenious twist and turn’ Observer
