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

Synopsis

Murderabilia by Craig Robertson

The first commuter train of the morning slowly rumbles away from platform seven of Queen St station. Everyone on board is sleepy, avoiding eye contact, reluctant to admit the day has begun. And then, as the train emerges from a tunnel, the screaming starts. Hanging from the bridge ahead of them is a body. Placed neatly on the ground below him are the victim's clothes. Why? Detective Narey is assigned the case and then just as quickly taken off it again. Winter, now a journalist, must pursue the case for her. The line of questioning centres around the victim's clothes - why leave them in full view? And what did the killer not leave, and where might it appear again? Everyone has a hobby. Some people collect death. To find this evil, Narey must go on to the dark web, and into immense danger ...
