DI Adam Ralston is no stranger to the dark side of human nature, but when a young art gallery worker is discovered in her South Side flat, brutally raped, her throat slit, and a single red rose laid upon her corpse, he is thrown into a bloody maelstrom of violence and suspicion unlike anything he has known before.
Haunted by the death of a prison officer on a previous case, (see Calling Cards) Ralston must also battle his own personal demons and hold his family together as tries to track down the killer – a killer who leaves no clues, who grows bolder with each killing, and who seems to be able to strike at will.
Time is running out. And the body count is rising.
In this thrilling crime drama, DI Ralston emerges as a policeman of depth and subtlety and Gordon Johnston confirms the promise of his first crime novel, Calling Cards, and enters the top rank of Tartan Noir writers.
