Excellent read. A gripping, gritty thriller with well rounded characters. Also, this book strips away any romanticised image the reader may have of Glasgow in the mid 20th century.

A good suspenseful page turning read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Douglas Brodie, a former officer in the British 51st Highland Division, is contacted by an old school friend, Hugh Donovan, to save him from the gallows. Donovan has been convicted for the rape and murder of a young boy. Donovan claims he is innocent but the mountain of evidence against him makes his claim questionable. Brodie only has 14 days to clear his friend before he is hung for the crime.
A fast-paced plot, a bunch of tough IRA gangsters and a pretty blond Scottish advocate makes for a thrilling read. Fans of Ian Rankin won’t be disappointed in this action packed tale.

Excellent murder/mystery set in post WW2 Scotland. Well worth the read. Look out Ian Rankin.
