'A compelling lead ... Satisfyingly twisted plot' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.
Ruthless crime lord James Machie was assassinated in the back of a prison ambulance following his trial and conviction. But now, five years later, he appears to be back from the grave and hell-bent on wreaking revenge on those who brought him down. Top of his list is fellow gangster Frank MacDougall who, unbeknownst to D.C.I. Jim Daley, is living under protection near Kinloch.
Daley must work out how a dead man could commit murder, what he's planning next and how to protect his friend and colleague D.S. Scott, who is also a target. Because nothing, not even death, has ever stood in James Machie's way...
