There's a hit man in Glasgow: unpaid and angry, he's decided to settle his own debts....
Elsewhere in the city, Marianne Brogan can't sleep. She's plagued by a nightmare: someone in the shadows, whispering threats, stalking her every move. To make matters worse, Marianne can't get hold of her brother, Billy. Despite knowing some shady characters from Glasgow's underworld, Billy's always been there for her - until now.
DCI Lorimer and his team are faced with a string of seemingly unconnected but professional killings. Without witnesses or much conclusive evidence to build a case, the officers are drawing a blank. Criminal psychologist Solly Brightman is off the case due to budget cuts. But Solly is more closely connected to the murders than he could possibly know....
And as the hit man plans a bloody ransom to get his fee, the race is on to find out just who hired him - and who's next on the hit list.

"Gray's best book yet.... A thoroughly impressive outing from a writer ready to join the top rank of crime authors." (Daily Express)
"Good crime story but treackly writing about the central characters personal lives."
The author also gives you too many nudges toward the ever so perfect and heroic character of the protagonist. I'm not sure why I disliked the narration, but I did. Others may enjoy it.
