A stunning crime fiction debut from one of the most exciting new voices in the genre
First he kills.
A psychologist is found brutally murdered, an addict jumps to his death and a student is found dead. These are the facts. And they are all that DIs Wheeler and Ross have.
As Wheeler and Ross weave through the layers of Glasgow’s underbelly they find a subculture where truth and lies are interchangeable commodities and violence is the favoured currency.
The killer stays one step ahead of them as Wheeler uncovers a web of deceit in which her own nephew is entangled.
He leaves his legacy . . .
And as the case draws to a close, Wheeler has to confront her own integrity and face the dilemma: is justice always served by the truth?
A. J. McCreanor was born in Glasgow and after university taught English in various secondary schools in inner Glasgow. In 2011 she won her first prize for crime fiction writing at the Wells Literature Festival. McCreanor now lives in Glastonbury with her husband, two cats and one dog.
