A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
Yet another Scottish slice of realistic noir from the author of the acclaimed and trailblazing Glasgow trilogy of hard men, gangs and double dealings, Mackay's new novel again stands out if only for its memorable headline title! Nate Colgan is the fixer for a multi-tentacled criminal organisation confronted by all hell bursting loose and a gang war breaking out on his doorstep. Alongside him, a determined and antagonistic cop DI Michael Fisher has been biding his time and is ready to strike further in his quest to put more local criminals behind bars for good. The atmosphere is ripe for a right, bloody turf war, but who is pulling who's strings? Gritty, breathless, determinedly realistic and brutal, this is Mackay at his sharpest. Will leave you panting and a tad anxious. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
