When Gus Drury stumbles upon a dead body in a park, he uncovers a grizzly Edinburgh underworld of illegal dog fights and yet more police corruption. Soon it seems that they are determined to fit him up for the murder, and theft of £50,000. And just because that’s not enough, he’s also dealing with a grieving ex-wife, a widowed mother and a bunch of ex-pals deciding to stage an ‘intervention’ to suggest he give up the drink.
Slick, grizzly and definitely moorish, Drury rivals Rankin’s Rebus by far. Enjoy!
