Bitter Water Paperback
Part of the Douglas Brodie Series series
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 baulks 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?

Review by edwardsgt
An unusual plot set in post-war Glasgow, the central character being Douglas Brodie, former detective and a Major in the Seaforth Highlanders during WWII. Brodie is a journalist on the Gazette and understudying the paper's soon to retire chief reporter. The characters are well drawn and the period detail is extensive and apparently well-researched. There is much description in Glasgow / Scottish dialect which some might find difficult but adds authenticity and colour. Recommended.
