Detective Superintendent Lorimer's worst nightmare is a serial killer loose in his city. But two serial killers operating at once on the streets of Glasgow is a nightmare come to life. Is there a link between the brutal slaying of prostitutes in the backstreets of the city and the methodical killing of several unconnected businessmen? Lorimer is never one to jump to conclusions but something about these cases just doesn't add up.

Each killer has a different MO, but their obsession with murder is equally chilling. When the latest death is that of a prominent government minister, Lorimer finds the media's relentless scrutiny turned on his investigation. Psychologist Solly Brightman is helping with both cases, but someone within Lorimer's team is sabotaging their efforts by leaking confidential police information. Their whispers will cost lives . . . As a freezing winter grips Glasgow, two killers are relentlessly murdering in cold blood, brandishing their own kind of brutal justice, each taking greater risks and claiming more victims. For Lorimer, time is running out.Evoking the gritty truth of Glasgow like no other writer, Alex Gray has created in Lorimer the most dynamic Scottish detective since Rebus.

    " The reader of this audiobook goes into a strange Stanley Baxter imitation when speaking for female characters. I believe that the author is a birdwatcher or at least a fancier as there are quite a few (unnecessary) references to our feathered friends throughout the book. I felt that many of the characters did a lot of unnecessary mulling and time-wasting when they could have got on with the job. I wasn't interested in many of the sub-plots. They did nothing for the central story. The author could perhaps look at crime authors like Ed McBain, Henning Mankel, and Philip Kerr for how to tell a tale that's bare to the bone yet told with enough detail to keep you glued. "

    " Just about kept me going but didn't really do the thriller at the night thing. Will prob avoid this author. Quite a good double plot, but wonder if the twist at the end would have had more effect if I'd read other books by the author. Like the main detective, Lorimer, though. "

    " Not my favourite DCI Lorimer book I wasn't desperate to finish it to find out what happens a bit of a let down :( "
