What is your life worth if you’re nobody famous? What would you give to be somebody…anybody?
Britain’s most sensational TV show is under attack from a fanatical religious cult and Stevie McCabe is in a desperate race to discover what the sect is planning, while tracing a stalker whose threatening internet videos are increasingly disturbed. Working for a TV company that’s rigging the results of the show, his investigation is dogged by lies, envy and obsession, and the insatiable lust for fame at any cost infects everything.
At the heart of the case - a charismatic young woman who embodies the spirit of Marilyn Monroe, a devious fantasist inventing new identities, the sleaziest tabloid reporter on the planet and an ex-magician planning his greatest trick – to fill his pockets with millions.
As always, the city of Glasgow provides a vivid backdrop for acts of mayhem, corruption and homicidal intent, in a landscape peopled by crooked police, gay brides, dying philosophers, spiritual gurus, teenage thugs and the missing.
MY NAME IS NEVER WAS, the fourth Stevie McCabe novel from Glasgow Noir Fiction
