The third novel in the Paddy Meehan series, from the two-time winner of the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award
‘One of the most original voices in crime fiction’
Paddy Meehan finally has it all: a flat of her own in Glasgow and a job as one of Scotland’s leading newspaper columnists. Then the police knock on her door. Her former lover Terry has been found in a ditch, shot through the head.
Even though they had split up months before, Terry has left her everything, including a house in Ayrshire and boxes of notebooks. As Paddy digs deeper into his murder, it soon becomes clear that the secret he was about to expose is worth killing for. And that she is next in line.
