    Paddy Meehan has just started work on the Scottish Daily News when a toddler is abducted. Two eleven-year-old boys are arrested for his murder and Paddy is shocked to discover that one of them is her fiance's cousin, Callum. When the boy's name is reported in the media, Paddy's family believe that she is to blame. Shunned by those closest to her, she finds herself dangerously alone.

    Terrific story, great characters

    I was recommended this by a friend. Read it, she said, you'll love it. I did. So much so, I had to binge it. I loved the grittiness, the Weegie humour..Show More »

    Glasgow, 1990. Paddy Meehan's relaxed Saturday in front of the TV is shattered when the police knock on her door. Terry Patterson has been found naked in a ditch, executed with a shot through his temple. He was her first love and her hero - the sort of journalist she'd always aspired to be.

    Stay breatheless to the last chapter.

    Denise Mina writes really authentic Glasgow-Irish dialogue, making the tough world of journalism come alive and creating very engaging characters invo..Show More »
