Overview

An edgy police thriller from the creator of the Barney Thomson series.

A psychopath walks the streets of Glasgow, selecting his first victim. He sees his ex-girlfriend everywhere, and he will have her back.

When a woman is savagely murdered, her body stabbed over a hundred times, the police know from the nature of the crime that the killer will strike again. DCI Bloonsbury, the once-feted detective, is put in charge of the investigation, but as the killer begins to hit much closer to home and an old police conspiracy starts to unravel, Bloonsbury slides further into morose alcoholic depression.

In the middle of it all is Detective Sergeant Thomas Hutton, juggling divorce, deception, alcohol, murdered colleagues, and Dylan. He could use a break but the dead will not rest and the past will not be buried until he can catch the latest serial killer to haunt the streets of his city.


Also by Douglas Lindsay featuring DS Thomas Hutton, A Plague Of Crows, and coming in October 2014, The Blood That Stains Your Hands

"I thoroughly enjoyed Plague Of Crows. It's another superb example of Scottish crime noir. There are a number of elements to highlight. The writing is excellent. Sharp, fast paced, gripping." – Crime Fiction Lover

"An excellent, well written story that will appeal to readers of gritty, down to earth crime / noir" – Big Al's Books And Pals

"The brilliant and totally entertaining aspect of this novel is the characters, their shenanigans and their humour. Lindsay is funny … and he writes about real folk like you and me who are just as confused, jealous, broken, greedy and damaged as we are." – I Meant To Read That

"Douglas Lindsay is a fine Scottish export that should be hailed in the same way as whisky, Rankin, haggis, tartan and those Jimmy hats that you can pick up from the Royal Mile. Super stuff." – Sea Minor

"I was at once cringing at the horror of the murders and then laughing from Hutton's interactions with the finer sex. It takes a talented author to pull off such a seamless switch of gears and Douglas Lindsay is just that." – Just A Guy Who Likes To Read

"If you like very dark and disturbing fiction, that is superbly written and beautifully addictive, then this one is definitely for you. Extremely highly recommended." – Old Dogs And New Tricks


Douglas Lindsay is the author of 13 novels, including The Unburied Dead (DS Hutton series), We Are The Hanged Man (DCI Jericho), the surreal thriller Being For The Benefit of Mr Kite! and The Long Midnight Of Barney Thomson (the Legend of Barney Thomson series), now a major movie starring Robert Carlyle and Emma Thompson.

    250 pages

    Do you remember the books which were popular in the 1980s, where you could choose the ending? This 250 page book is rather like those, only you have to use your imagination, instead of picking a conclusion, out of several options offered. The mystery is solved, but the reader has to figure out the detauls and why there was a crime in the first place. The punctuation is good, but the sentence structure is poor. There are so many incomplete sentences, it became annoying. This is an across the pond novel. There has been a lot of those offered lately. Ii found this book nothing special, it was rather mundane, inane, insipid and forgettable. There are some adult topics, but nothing over the tip or unexpected. This is rooster lit more than anything else. For readers 18 and up, mostly because it is a British mystery and slow moving.

    Good plot. Mystery leaves some open questions. The characters are neither admirable or likeable. Way too much sex and boozing for my taste. Detectives are of the kind that expects and accepts that evidence will  be planted and that such activities are to be hidden and protected by fellow officers However, toward the end, the main detectives finally got interested in the case and the story got interesting.  I almost bought the sequel but decided I didn't like the last of this book enough to read the first  part over again.
