Description

Who cares if a lowlife is murdered? Two Glasgow investigators, in a thriller that'll "wake up crime fiction readers everywhere" (Val McDermid). When a small-time heroin dealer turns up dead one fine morning in Scotland, no one is that surprised. Sleeping with a big-time drug trafficker's girlfriend can bring around plenty of enemies. Little wonder that Detective Superintendent Catherine McLeod has no shortage of early leads. If only out-of-work actress Jasmine Sharp could get a lead. With a career in nosedive, she's helping her uncle Jim with his PI work and having more than a little trouble learning the ropes. When her uncle goes missing, Sharp is thrown into the deep end. To find him she'll have to solve his most recent case—and do it solo. No sooner does Sharp follow her first clue than she finds herself in the crosshairs of an unknown assailant—and headed down the same road as McLeod. When their investigations become intertwined, "Glasgow's mean streets come alive . . . [in] one of the best novels of the year" (John Lutz, New York Times–bestselling and Edgar award–winning author). "Smartly written . . . Brookmyre deftly twists one case around the other." —Marilyn Stasio, TheNew York Times Book Review "[For] fans of Lynda La Plante's Prime Suspect series and HBO's The Wire." —Library Journal "Tough Scottish humor . . . leavened with Elmore Leonard-like flourishes . . . finely controlled yet exuberant mayhem." —The Christian Science Monitor
