The first novel featuring Detective Sergeant Lou Perlman.
A city of secrets. A twisting vortex of suspense and revenge . . .
Glasgow is all freezing December rains, driving sleet and icy pavements as slick as mirrors when the body of a well-dressed middle-aged man is found hanging from the girders of the Kingston Bridge.
Lou Perlman, a jazz-loving, Celtic-supporting street-smart DS who seems to buy his suits from Oxfam, is on the job. It's clear to him that this is no suicide, and as he investigates further he begins to suspect that the death could be connected to recent, apparently unrelated killings in the city.
What he discovers as he delves into the mystery will rock the foundations of his own life. It seems there is a dark secret within the community of which he is a member, and it's casting its shadow over his own family, the city and beyond.
