Summary

New Year's Eve should be a time for celebrating. A chance to spend time with loved ones and look forward to the year ahead. For DSI William Lorimer, however, this New Year's Eve will be one that he will never forget. Called to a house after gunshots are reported, the carnage he finds there will have a powerful impact on his life - leaving him questioning his future with Police Scotland.

Meanwhile, the man who eluded police capture during Lorimer's last investigation - the Quiet Release case involving the euthanasia of vulnerable patients - is back, and this time he's aligned with a powerful gangster from Glasgow's underworld. As Lorimer struggles to return to duty and stop this mystery killer once and for all, he discovers that there are forces high up within Police Scotland that are protecting the gangster who holds the key to finding the man they are looking for. Can Lorimer and his team get a killer off the streets for good before more innocent people die?

Another good Alex Gray book

I have grown fond of the characters in this series of books. The thoughtful inspector and the 'good and bad' people of Glasgow spill of the pages and encourage some reflection in this reader.
The narration compliments the story, well chosen artist I hope to hear more of him and hope for yet another Lorimer story to spill from Gray's pen/keyboard?.

A good story

I quite enjoyed this book, but I did find it very slow moving. The story was overall good and the narration is fine - I can't really put my finger on why I wasn't blown away. It was all a little lack lustre.

Sllloooowwww

I really struggled with this one until at least halfway through. I didn’t enjoy the scenes where Lorimer was at the residential clinic (boring). The story seemed to skip from character to character with no warning and it became confusing in places. Were there no chapter announcements? I can’t remember but it was muddled. I bought this based on my enjoyment of the previous book in the series but wish I hadn’t. Good narration.

A very enjoyable book

William Lorimer is one of my favourite detectives, he feels like an old friend and I enjoyed this book very much. All the main characters are well developed and believable which helps to involve the reader in the plot. I felt involved in the plot from start to finish and I felt very sorry when the book came to an end. I will certainly read this book again in the future.
