This was Alex Gray’s first crime thriller featuring DCI Lorimer.  However, her thrillers are very much stand-alone novels although if you want to read them all in published order then start here.  Scratch the surface of the polished Glasgow art world and dark layers are revealed beneath particularly when three young women are discovered trangled and mutilated in a Glasgow park.  Through Gray’s powerful and evocative prose, the reader is lead through the streets, parks and art galleries on a gruesome journey of discovery that never fails to keep the pages turning.


Like for like: Ian Rankin, Val McDermid, Denise Mina.

Never Somewhere Else by Alex Gray

When three young women are discovered strangled and mutilated in a Glasgow park, it is up to DCI Lorimer to find their killer. Frustrated by a lack of progress in the investigation, Lorimer is forced to enlist the services of Dr Solomon and Brightman, psychologist and criminal profiler. Together they form an uneasy alliance. But when a homeless man is brought in for questioning the investigation takes a bizarre turn. Soon Lorimer has to scratch the surface of the polished Glasgow art world and reveal the dark layers hidden beneath...
