This was Alex Gray’s first crime thriller featuring DCI Lorimer. However, her thrillers are very much stand-alone novels although if you want to read them all in published order then start here. 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.

Like for like: Ian Rankin, Val McDermid, Denise Mina.
