A standalone psychological thriller from the acclaimed author of the Alex Morrow novels that exposes the dark hearts of the guilty … and the innocent.

The “trial of the century” in 1950’s Glasgow is over. Peter Manuel has been found guilty of a string of murders and is waiting to die by hanging. But every good crime story has a beginning. Manuel’s starts with the murder of William Watt’s family. Looking no further that Watt himself, the police are convinced he’s guilty. Desperate to clear his name, Watt turns to Manuel, a career criminal who claims to have information that will finger the real killer. As Watt seeks justice with the cagey Manuel’s help, everyone the pair meets has blood on their hands as they sell their version of the truth.

The Long Drop is an explosive novel about guilt, innocence, and the power of a good story to hide the difference.

Quotes & Awards

  • “With one plot line continually hopscotching over the other, Mina manages to keep two narratives going at once: the farcical account of Watt and Manuel’s binge and the sober courtroom drama of dueling life-or-death stories when Manuel faces a jury…This one feels painfully real.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Takes readers on a suspenseful tour into the past, through psyches and situations far grimmer than even those sooty Glasgow streets.”

    Washington Post

  • “A terrific exploration of crime and oppression.”
