Dundee International Book Prize Winner 2009

Award-winning Scottish suspense thriller set in a dismal and dark Dundee. A mystery and detective story, which is a combination of a police procedural and a woman in jeopardy, featuring the popular Scottish detective, DS Bill Murphy.

Kara owes money to Dundee gangster, Tony, and takes to the streets to earn the cash. She narrowly escapes the clutches of a killer on the prowl, but stumbles across the bodies of other victims. Hunted by the serial killer and the gangsters, Kara goes on the run.

DS Bill Murphy teams up with newcomer DC Louise Walker in the murder investigation. But Murphy's past comes back to haunt him and he is heading for a breakdown, which means it is up to Louise to catch the killer.

One of the murder victims is the daughter of Dundee gangster, Tony, and he vows revenge. He is determined to mete out his own kind of justice to the killer and make him pay the ultimate price.

Who will find the killer first? Tony or the police? And what will happen to Kara?

In the end, what kind of justice will prevail?
