Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Douglas Brodie is an ex-policeman, an ex-major in the Highlanders during World War II and now a journalist for the Glasgow Gazette. It is 1946 and Glasgow is sweltering in a late summer heat wave and in a wave of corruption as the city needs rebuilding, and then the murders begin - wow ... this "Gunfight at OK Coral" style ending is quite something. Brodie is not the new Rebus as the publisher suggests, Ferris not the new Rankin. He is his own man and his hero is most definitely not an anti-hero. This is a great, gripping, exciting read. Highly recommended.

Synopsis

Bitter Water by Gordon Ferris

Glasgow's melting. The temperature is rising and so is the murder rate. Douglas Brodie, ex-policeman, ex-soldier and now newest reporter on the Glasgow Gazette, has no shortage of material for his crime column. But even Brodie balks at his latest subject: a rapist who has been tarred and feathered by a balaclava-clad group. Brodie soon discovers a link between this horrific act and a series of brutal beatings. As violence spreads and the body count rises, Brodie and advocate Samantha Campbell are entangled in a web of deception and savagery. Brodie is swamped with stories for the Gazette. But how long before he and Sam become the headline?
