A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
If Ian Rankin controls the crime scene in Edinburgh, it's becoming clear that Craig Robertson has a firm grip on matters murderous in Glasgow and this outstanding and disturbing stand alone only serves to confirm his local dominance. Folllowing five novels mostly featuring photographer Tony Winter, this new chiller sees him now working as a journalist, implicated with Detective Narey in a sinister case initiated by a body hanging from a bridge by the main train station. Clues lead to the dark web and to a particular species of collectors. However when she is curiously taken off the investigation, Narey has no choice but to ally herself with Winter and the road to the truth becomes increasingly personal and dangerous. Gritty, worrisome, and unflinching stuff. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

The line of questioning centres around the victim's clothes - why leave them in full view? And what did the killer take with them, and where might it appear again? Murderabilia - the practice of collecting items from crime scenes. Items only available on the dark web. The collector must be prepared to pay a high price. As Narey is about to find out ...
