Some secrets will plunge you into the abyss
When a woman plummets to her death from the top of Edinburgh’s Scott Monument, crime reporter Doug McGregor is tasked with getting the story behind the headlines. But Doug is already working on a story of his own – tracking down a notorious rapist who has just been outed in Fife and thought to be heading for his parents’ home in East Lothian.
Tapping his contact and sometime drinking pal DS Susie Drummond, Doug discovers that the woman who fell from the Scott Monument was the daughter of a high-profile MSP. Digging deeper, he and Susie are dragged into a story darker than they could ever have imagined – one that certain people would go to any lengths to keep hidden.
