And When I Die

LoveReading View on And When I Die

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

A tense Glasow gangland thriller laced with family saga elements with pace and strong characterisation to boot, McLean's latest novel raises him a fair few rungs up the crowded McMafia steps. Ray Scobie, a killer who can't experience pain, lies in hospital under an assumed name while police and cohorts believe he is dead. He plots his revenge against the crime family he holds responsible. John, an undercover cop, however, stands in his way, complicated by the fact that he has initiated a relationship with Kat, a Scobie relative. Conflict, blood on the floor and heightened emotions all conjugate well to deliver a high octane read with ounces of 'noir' to spare. Of course, Glasgow as always makes a perfect setting for a dark take of violence and woe. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

And When I Die Press Reviews

'An uncompromising work of Glasgow noir, brutal and driven ... at its heart is a woman torn between loyalty to her criminal family and a desire for a better life. Complicated and conflicted but achingly real, you'll be rooting for her all the way.' - Eva Dolan

'Chillingly plausible... a wonderfully dark and disturbing tale of misplaced loyalty and betrayal; a beautifully paced, action-packed thriller of a book.' - James Oswald
