After her brother, Leland, was committed to an institution for the insane for a series of brutal murders, Erin Paterson thought that she might have a little more time to devote to her law practice in Glasgow. But when a murder is committed in the United States, a murder that has all the trademarks of her brother's homicidal mania, Erin's always vulnerable peace of mind is threatened once again. And, when the man she was closest to, Paul Gabriel - investigative journalist and an ex-policeman - also disappears in America, an anguished call from his daughter sets Erin off on a dark trail to uncover a world she would have preferred to leave undisturbed.

'I really enjoyed it - she's a breath of fresh air in the Scottish crime fiction field. It's got lots of genuinely black comedic moments but also some grimly painful storytelling' Val McDermid, author of The Torment of Others 'Quite simply, this is one of the best crime novels you're likely to read this year. As a first novel, it's quite extraordinary, and marks the arrival of an exceptional new talent on the British mystery scene' John ConnollyAbout the Author:
