May 2014 Book of the Month.

This has everything you would want in a crime novel; a gritty gutsy Glasgow as the setting, realistic coppers, dodgy businessmen, out and out villains and enough twists and turns to tie you up and hang you over a precipice of suspense. We are introduced to some authentic likeable detectives, steadfast and thorough DCI Charlie Anderson and his somewhat gung-ho protege. The author slowly feeds us slightly more information than the investigators have available to them and we watch as the scene is set, tension builds and they try to unravel the twisted, knotted lines of enquiry. Traditional in the best sense of the word, this is a thoroughly satisfying read, bring on the next in the series. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Black Mail by Bill Daly

Murder and drug-dealing are all in a day’s work for DCI Charlie Anderson, but everything’s on a different scale now that psychopath Billy McAteer is back on the streets of Glasgow.
Simon Ramsay, a successful and seemingly respectable businessman, receives an email with a photograph attached. If he doesn’t come up with £50k, the sender will release it to the press, and Ramsay’s career will be over.

In a state of panic he contacts his mistress, Laura. He tells her a blackmailer has managed to get his hands on a compromising photo of them in bed together.

Terrified of what her violent husband will do if he finds out about her affair, Laura enlists the services of McAteer to deal with the blackmailer.

It is a moment of madness, with disastrous repercussions.

And it falls to DCI Anderson and his sidekick to unravel the trail of death and destruction.

Reviews

Praise for Bill Daly:

‘Does a terrific job of evoking Glasgow in all its many layers. The villain of the piece is truly chilling and the policemen who pursue him hugely likeable. An impressive debut and a vivid new voice in tartan noir.’
Maggie Craig
