Dark deeds make for devilish reading in this short story from the multi-award-winning crime author of Black Widow, Want You Gone and Where the Bodies Are Buried.
***Please note that this story was originally published as The Last Siege of Bothwell Castle in the Bloody Scotland anthology***
A hostage crisis is developing at a castle on the outskirts of Glasgow, during what is supposed to be Superintendent Catherine McLeod's bank holiday relaxation time.
Those trapped inside the castle are used to dealing with the volatile mix of light-fingered teens and obnoxious tourists; less so a truckload of explosives and a hidden agenda. For Catherine and her team, it's a recipe for a potentially deadly day off.
Tense, twisted and laugh-out-loud funny, Siege Mentality is a day-trip you won't forget.
For more from Catherine McLeod, read the Jasmine Sharp trilogy, beginning with Where the Bodies are Buried, a sample from which is included with this short story.

A very enjoyable short story.
Not what you'd expect from a day out at Bothwell Castle! Brookmyre's dark humour returns.
