A police detective returns to Glasgow to investigate his estranged father's death in international bestselling author Campbell Armstrong's atmospheric, page-turning thriller. Detective Eddie Mallon is coming home to Glasgow for the funeral of his father, whom he barely knew. Decades ago, the Mallon family split down the middle, and Eddie went to America with his mother while his sister stayed with their father, Jackie, a charming, mercurial, violent man. Now Jackie has been murdered and the investigators assigned to his case don't seem particularly interested in dealing with Eddie's concerns, or the clues he uncovers. Eddie has no choice but to conduct his own investigation, which takes him into the shadowy history of his father's past and present and into something bigger and more disturbing than one man's death. Campbell Armstrong's suspenseful writing brings the foggy alleys of Glasgow to life, transforming the mysterious city into a character in and of itself.
