LoveReading View on Still Midnight

Just look at the reviews for this author.  Her peers love her, the press love her, have you heard of her?  Well, it is time you did.  She writes about Glasgow low-life, gritty and atmospheric.  This concerns a kidnapping that backfires, a seemingly baffled family unable to raise the ransom and a murky underworld.  Beyond the crime and detection it explores the nuances of relationships between parent and child, siblings, colleagues, captor and captive.  It is dark, big in plot and deep in human drama.

Still Midnight Synopsis

It's a peaceful Sunday evening in suburban Glasgow until a battered van pulls up to one home and disgorges a group of armed men in balaclavas. They smash into the house and hold the family at gunpoint and demand millions of pounds. Baffled, the assembled people protest that they don't have access to that sort of money. The attackers kidnap the elderly grandfather and storm off into the night. Now senior policewoman Alex Morrow has been summoned to investigate the case. But there are so many mysteries. Who were the men? And why did they think a normal household concealed untold riches? The family is certainly not talking. But as she starts to delve deeper, she realises that there are dark secrets all around...
