'Its plot twists and turns . . . Fascinating' The Times
'Addictive' i


There's a heatwave in Glasgow and the drugs trade is booming. The whole force is searching for missing thirteen-year-old Alice Kelly. All except Harry McCoy, who has been taken off the case after a run-in with the boss, and is instead sent alone to investigate the death of rock-star Bobby March, who has just overdosed in the Royal Stuart hotel.

The papers want blood. The force wants results. McCoy has a hunch. But does he have enough time?

Review quote

Even better than its predecessors . . . Its plot twists and turns, provoking laughter and tears . . . Fascinating and dangerous . . . Parks has clearly studied the masters of tartan noir but has his own voice. He shows how, among the welter of violence, a spontaneous act of kindness can have just as great an impact * * The Times, Book of the Month * * Addictive reading * * i * * Draws the reader in with equal parts of twist and grit . . . It's McCoy, though, who makes this series something special - he's multi-layered and three-dimensional, with his own idiosyncratic work ethic . . . With this third instalment of the McCoy books, Parks has continued to build a series that no crime fan should miss: dangerous, thrilling, but with a kind voice to cut through the darkness * * Scotsman * * Alan Parks has swiftly established himself as an exciting new voice in the world of tartan noir . . . Parks knows the city intimately, and this comes across effortlessly on the page * * Scotland on Sunday * * Parks captures the feel of a city long vanished in a breathless and tense retro crime caper * * The Sun * * This piece of tartan noir, with its twisting, turning plot, is full of fun period detail * * The Times, Best Books of 2020 * * The morally ambiguous, deeply flawed McCoy makes an ideal antihero * * Publishers Weekly * * PRAISE FOR BLOODY JANUARY: An old-school cop novel written with wit and economy . . . Think McIlvanney or Get Carter -- IAN RANKIN A potent tale of death . . . Alan Parks's excellent first novel propels him into the top class of Scottish noir authors . . . Detective Harry McCoy . . . is so noir that he makes most other Scottish cops seem light grey * * The Times, Book of the Month * * 1970s Glasgow hewn from flesh and drawn in blood -- PETER MAY
