Description

Four teenagers find the mutilated corpse of a young girl stuffed into a dumpster in an Edinburgh alleyway. Who is she? Where did she come from? Who killed her and why? Above all, where is the baby to which she has obviously recently given birth? Inspector Rob Brennan, recently back from psychiatric leave, is still shocked by the senseless shooting of his only brother. His superiors think that the case of the dumpster girl will be perfect to get him back on track. But Rob Brennan has enemies within the force, stacks of unfinished business and a nose for trouble. What he discovers about the murdered girl blows the case - and his life - wide open.

Review quote

"An accomplished and impressive piece of tartan noir." * The List * "Black's visceral prose makes this a superior offering in a crowded market" * Big Issue * "Black renders his nicotine-stained domain in a hardboiled slang that fizzles with vicious verisimilitude." * Guardian * "Every flaw is stripped of shadow and every bad deed gets punished. If I read a better example of the police procedural this year I will be amazed" * Crimesquad, 5 star review *
