From the Back Cover:

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’
EVENING STANDARD

‘I can think of no other writer who so vividly captures the atmosphere of hopeless urban menace’
THE TIMES

About the Author:

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.
