»Es ist schwer, einen Mann gut zu töten. Leute, die es machen, wissen das. Leute, die es schlecht machen, finden es heraus. Auf die harte Tour. Und die harte Tour hat Folgen.« Malcolm Mackay: der neue Kult-Bestsellerautor aus Schottland mit absolut unverwechselbarem Sound. Calum MacLean lebt allein in seiner Wohnung in Glasgow. Das Telefon klingelt. Eine belanglose Unterhaltung. Aber dahinter steckt ein Jobangebot. Wenn man die Zeichen zu deuten weiß. Er ist Experte. Einzelgänger. Hat einen guten Ruf bei denen, die zählen in Glasgow. Ein Treffen in einem Club. Ein Auftrag. Ein Ziel: Lewis Winter. Fesselnd, atmosphärisch, cool: Mackay zieht uns in eine dunkle Welt, in der es Regeln gibt. Sie nicht zu kennen, ist tödlich. »Die bedeutendste neue Stimme in der schottischen Spannung! Authentisch, stilsicher, ein moderner Raymond Chandler.“ Scotsman »Ein eindrucksvoll originelles Debüt, das turmhoch aus dem üblichen Einerlei herausragt. Man kann es nicht aus der Hand legen.« The Observer »Mackay erschafft Figuren, die so lebendig wirken, dass man lange nach Ende der Lektüre über sie nachdenkt. Ein bemerkenswertes Buch.

A crime you'll always remember. A detective you'll never forget. A young girl is found dead. A prostitute is murdered. And the strangest, youngest detective in the South Wales Major Crimes Unit is about to face the fiercest test of her short career. A woman and her six-year-old daughter are killed with chilling brutality in a dingy flat. The only clue: the platinum bank card of a long-dead tycoon, found amidst the squalor. DC Griffiths has already proved herself dedicated to the job, but there's another side to her she is less keen to reveal. Something to do with a mysterious two-year gap in her CV, her strange inability to cry - and a disconcerting familiarity with corpses. Fiona is desperate to put the past behind her but as more gruesome killings follow, the case leads her back into those dark places in her own mind where another dead girl is waiting to be found... Praise for the Fiona Griffiths mystery series: 'I have to say that in a lifetime of reading crime fiction I have never come across anyone quite like Fiona Griffiths . . . Read this book. Enjoy every syllable. Hold your breath, and tick off the weeks until the next one' Crime Fiction Lover 'Compelling...a new crime talent to treasure' Daily Mail 'Gritty, compelling...a procedural unlike any other you are likely to read this year' USA Today 'With Detective Constable Fiona 'Fi' Griffiths, Harry Bingham...finds a sweet spot in crime fiction...think Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander...[or] Lee Child's Jack Reacher... The writing is terrific' The Boston Globe 'This cleverly plotted police procedural introduces a likeable, maverick detective destined for a bestseller following' Choice Fans of Angela Marsons, Peter James and Ann Cleeves will be gripped by the other titles in the Fiona Griffiths mystery series: 1.
