    When the dead body of a man is fished out of Glasgow's River Clyde the morning after an office celebration, it looks like a case of accidental death. An anonymous telephone call and a forensic toxicology test, however, give DCI Lorimer reason to think otherwise. Probing deeper into the life and business of the deceased accountant, Duncan Forbes, a seemingly upright member of the community, Lorimer finds only more unanswered questions.

    When Chief Inspector Lorimer returns from his holiday on the island of Mull, he feels a welcome sense of calm. But it doesn't last long. Kelvin FC's new star midfielder is found brutally stabbed to death in his own home, and, with his wife apprehended trying to leave the country, a seemingly straightforward new case begins. But the grisly murder of a referee after a Kelvin match throws light on some dark secrets at the ground.

    My first Alex Gray

    I have really enjoyed this novel. What a treat to have a good story without crudity and swearing. I will certainly read more.

    Eric Chalmers is one of the most popular teachers at Muirpark Secondary School in Glasgow. Gentle and kind, he is the person the students come to when they want to confide in someone. So when precocious teenager Julie Donaldson accuses Chalmers of rape, the school goes into shock. How could a deeply religious family man like Chalmers do anything like that? With some students and teachers supporting Julie and others standing by Chalmers, life at Muirpark is far from harmonious. And then things get much worse.

    Detective Superintendent Lorimer's worst nightmare is a serial killer loose in his city. But two serial killers operating at once on the streets of Glasgow is a nightmare come to life. Is there a link between the brutal slaying of prostitutes in the backstreets of the city and the methodical killing of several unconnected businessmen? Lorimer is never one to jump to conclusions but something about these cases just doesn't add up. Each killer has a different MO, but their obsession with murder is equally chilling.

    When the body of a red-haired young man is washed up on the shore of the beautiful Isle of Mull, Detective Superintendent Lorimer's tranquil holiday away from the gritty streets of Glasgow is rudely interrupted. The body has been bound with twine in a ghoulishly unnatural position and strongly reminds Lorimer of another murder: a twenty-year-old Glasgow case that he failed to solve as a newly fledged detective constable and which has haunted him ever since.

    Enjoyable Scottish Isles murder mystery

    Not a gripping murder mystery by any means but draws you in and makes you feel like a part of their community

It appears that the woman had a mysterious visitor in the early hours of that morning - someone dressed as a carer but with much darker intentions. It soon becomes obvious that this was not death by natural causes; in fact it was murder.
