This is an excellent series. It stars a former World War II soldier now a crime reporter in Scotland, one Douglas Brodie. He becomes involved in some pretty big stories, here uncovering Nazi loot on its way to South America. His girlfriend is a lawyer and between them they uncover many atrocities, only in this one Brodie gets into serious trouble , seeming framed but needing rescuing which is ingeniously done.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Ferris considered starting the fourth and final instalment in the critically acclaimed Doug-las Brodie series, with a death – but whose? What would be most dramatic? The hero’s, of course. ‘Gallowglass’ were elite Scottish mercenaries, fighting alongside Robert the Bruce and Irish chieftains; an appropriate nom de guerre for a tough character such as Ferris’s protagonist Brodie. In this immensely involving final chapter, set in the summer of 1947, Brodie’s customary rashness leads him into the murky depths of blackmail, kidnapping, murder and revenge – all encountered with typical determination. Ferris writes finis to this remarkable (and gritty) series with great élan.

Synopsis

Gallowglass by Gordon Ferris

Douglas Brodie is dead. The Glasgow Gazette announced the tragic death on 26 June 1947 of their chief crime reporter. Just three weeks before, life was rosy. After a tumultuous winter chasing war criminals across Glasgow, Douglas Brodie was revelling in the quiet life. His relationship with advocate Samantha Campbell was blossoming and he'd put the reins on his impulsiveness. Hope and promise filled the tranquil summer air. A day later, Brodie was arrested for the kidnap and murder of Scotland's top banker. The case against Brodie is watertight: caught with a gun in his hand next to a man with a bullet in the head - from Brodie's own revolver. He has no alibi. No witnesses. Despite Samantha's best efforts, Brodie faces the gallows. Is this the sordid end for a distinguished ex-copper, decorated soldier and man of parts?

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Sarah Davis

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
