Summary

When a teenage boy shoots a young woman dead in the middle of a busy Glasgow street and then commits suicide, Detective Harry McCoy is sure of one thing. It wasn't a random act of violence.

McCoy uses his underworld network to lead the investigation but soon runs up against a secret society led by Glasgow's wealthiest family, the Dunlops. McCoy's boss doesn't want him to investigate. The Dunlops seem untouchable. But McCoy has other ideas....

Brutal,truthful,fantastic

This is a great listen.sometimes hard to carry on with due to it brutal violence,drugs and drink but it was or should I say still is what that life is like whether in Glasgow,Liverpool or London or anywhere.and covering up the wealthy nut jobs lords and all and back in the 60s and 70s they was allowed to get away with murder literally look forward to more from mr parks and mr Macintosh on audible 6 stars baz
