Whether you've read them all, or whether you're coming to Alex Gray's highly acclaimed series for the very first time, this is the perfect, page-turning read if you love Ann Cleeves, Val McDermid or Ian Rankin.
DSI Lorimer is back with a brand new case. And the stakes have never been so high . . .
When his old friend and former colleague is shot dead at his home, Detective Superintendent William Lorimer is devastated. And his problems are only just beginning. It's not long before two further deaths are reported: both victims ex-policemen.
It's clear this is a targeted campaign against their own, yet with no other link between the victims to identify the killer, Lorimer's police team are starting to panic. Who will be next?
Lorimer knows he must keep his cool if he is to solve the case. But with time running out before the next attack, he's struggling to ignore the sickening question at the back of his mind:
Will he get to the killer, before the killer gets to him?
