Scratch the surface of the polished Glasgow art world and dark layers are revealed beneath particularly when three young women are discovered trangled and mutilated in a Glasgow park. Through Gray’s powerful and evocative prose, the reader is lead through the streets, parks and art galleries on a gruesome journey of discovery that never fails to keep the pages turning.

But when a homeless man is brought in for questioning the investigation takes a bizarre turn. Soon Lorimer has to scratch the surface of the polished Glasgow art world and reveal the dark layers hidden beneath...
