'Brings Glasgow to life in the same way Ian Rankin evokes Edinburgh' Daily MailNew Year's Eve should be a time for celebrating.
But for Detective Superintendent William Lorimer, this is one night he will never forget... Called to a house after gunshots are reported, the carnage Lorimer finds there leaves him traumatised and questioning his future with Police Scotland.

A number of known addicts are dying from accidental overdoses, but something's not adding up.
