It is so refreshing to have a police photographer centre-stage in a police procedural series and Tony Winter, said man, is an excellent character with a sharp, unique eye. This is now his third case after Snapshot and Cold Grave and the strongest so far. Set in Glasgow this one has Tony’s uncle Danny Neilson’s old case from the 70s impinging on Tony’s mind as an equally horrible murder confronts him now, only the culprit is still in jail … so we get a dual period crime novel, beautifully done with Tony, Danny and the evil convicted man at loggerheads. There is further development in Tony’s personal life too so building on his character for further reads. Highly recommended.

If you like Craig Robertson you might also like to read books by Denise Mina, Peter May and Tony Black.

Synopsis

Witness the Dead by Craig Robertson

Scotland 1972. Glasgow is haunted by a murderer nicknamed Red Silk - a feared serial killer who selects his victims in the city's nightclubs. The case remains unsolved but Archibald Atto, later imprisoned for other murders, is thought to be Red Silk. In modern-day Glasgow, DS Rachel Narey is called to a gruesome crime scene at the city's Necropolis. The body of a young woman lies stretched out over a tomb. Her body bears a three-letter message from her killer. Now retired, former detective Danny Neilson spots a link between the new murder and those he investigated in 1972 - details that no copycat killer could have known about. But Atto is still behind bars. Must Danny face up to his fears that they never caught their man? Determined finally to crack the case, Danny, along with his nephew, police photographer Tony Winter, pays Atto a visit. But they soon discover that they are going to need the combined efforts of police forces past and present to bring a twisted killer to justice. Move over MacBride! Witness the Dead is the compelling new thriller from Scotland's hottest new talent.
