A motorist's error leads to the discovery of a decomposed headless and handless corpse in the garden of a house in a prestigious Glasgow suburb. For Glasgow's P Division, the first task is to identify the body – an identification which reveals a person with a talent for making enemies.
Then there is another killing – a murderous stabbing in an east-end housing scheme – and the police investigation takes on an added urgency. The whiff of corruption is in the air, and soon they are unravelling a thirty-year-old fraud of massive proportions, which, if made public, would shake the city to its very foundations.
‘Turnbull's Glasgow is a lovely slice of violent life’
‘I can think of no other writer who so vividly captures the atmosphere of hopeless urban menace’
Peter Turnbull was born in Yorkshire and educated locally. He has had a variety of jobs, and was a social worker for twenty-three years, an occupation he has recently given up to become a full-time writer. His work has taken him to Sheffield, Glasgow (where his acclaimed P Division novels are set) and Leeds, where he now lives.
