A twenty-nine-year-old man lives alone in his Glasgow flat. The telephone rings, and a casual conversation ensues. But behind this is a job offer.

The clues are there if you know where to look for them. He is an expert. A loner. Freelance. Another job is another job, but what if this organization wants more?

A meeting takes place at a club. An offer. A target: Lewis Winter, a necessary sacrifice that will be only the first step in an all-out war between crime syndicates, the likes of which hasn’t been seen for decades.

It’s easy to kill a man; it’s hard to kill a man well. People who do it well know this. People who do it badly find out the hard way—and the hard way has consequences.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Glasgow’s a tough city and this is a tough book…very authentic, very gritty, you can really feel the streets. They call this genre Tartan Noir and absolutely The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter is a first-class member of that.”

    Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Remarkable. Mackay’s achievement is all the more stunning because drawing on his sublime imagination and innate empathy he has created a cast of characters so vivid—especially MacLean, who knows how hard it is to kill a man—that they live on in the memory long after the final page.”

    Daily Mail (London)

  • “A quietly absorbing gangland tale, full of moral ambiguities.”

    Times (London)

  • “A remarkably original debut…This is a book that it would be hard not to finish in one sitting…A wholly believable and unnerving portrait of organized crime.”

    Observer (London)

  • “Tartan noir fans will be satisfied.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • A 2016 Edgar Allan Poe Award Nominee
