Part of the DSI William Lorimer series


***THE MILLION-COPY BESTSELLING DETECTIVE SERIES*** 'One of the best is Alex Gray' Literary Review 'Intensely exciting and atmospheric' Alexander McCall Smith 'Move over Rebus' Daily Mirror No one rests in peace. _______________There's a hitman in Glasgow: unpaid and angry, he's decided to settle his own debts... Elsewhere in the city, Marianne Brogan can't sleep.

She's plagued by a nightmare: someone in the shadows, whispering threats, stalking her every move.

To make matters worse, Marianne can't get hold of her brother, Billy.

Despite knowing some shady characters from Glasgow's underworld, Billy's always been there for her - until now. DCI Lorimer and his team are faced with a string of seemingly unconnected but professional killings.

Without witnesses or much conclusive evidence to build a case, the officers are drawing a blank.

Criminal psychologist Solly Brightman is off the case due to budget cuts.

But Solly is more closely connected to the murders than he could possibly know . . . And as the hitman plans a bloody ransom to get his fee, the race is on to find out just who hired him - and who's next on the hit list. Whether you've read them all, or whether you're coming to Alex Gray's highly acclaimed Lorimer series for the very first time, this is the perfect, page-turning winter read if you love Ann Cleeves, Val McDermid or Ian Rankin. _______________ ***PRAISE FOR ALEX GRAY*** 'Convincing Glaswegian atmosphere and superior writing' The Times 'Brings Glasgow to life in the same way Rankin evokes Edinburgh' Daily Mail 'Exciting, pacy, authentic' Angela Marsons 'Sums up everything that is golden and enthralling about a good book' Fully Booked
