From the author of The Hanging Shed, a bestseller totalling 200,000 copies, comes the third instalment in the Douglas Brodie series. As Glasgow is buried under snow, a killer is on the loose and a deadly secret threatens to take Brodie to the edge of sanity. 'The new Ian Rankin' - Daily Mail It's 1947 and the worst winter in memory: Glasgow is buried in snow, killers stalk the streets - and Douglas Brodie's past is engulfing him. It starts small. The Jewish community in Glasgow asks Douglas Brodie, ex-policeman turned journalist, to solve a series of burglaries. The police don't care and Brodie needs the cash. Brodie solves the crime but the thief is found dead, butchered by the owner of the house he was robbing. When the householder in turn is murdered, the whole community is in uproar - and Brodie's simple case of theft disintegrates into chaos. Into the mayhem strides Danny McRae - Brodie's old sparring partner from when they policed Glasgow's mean streets.
