Author(s): G.J. Moffat
Logan Finch has just about everything he ever wanted, including a penthouse apartment and a shot at making partner in one of Scotland's largest law firms. But there's something missing from his life: he still pines for the woman he thought was 'the one' and who left him without a word of explanation over twelve years ago. Alex Cahill is one of Logan's clients, and probably his best friend. The profane, gregarious American owns a successful security business but has a shadowy past and a capacity for violence. Detective Constable Rebecca Irvine, newly promoted to Strathclyde Police's CID, is stuck in a failing marriage. On her first day in the new job she is called to a murder scene in the affluent Southside of Glasgow. The victim is Penny Grant, Logan's former girlfriend. And her eleven-year-old daughter is missing. Against the backdrop of Glasgow city and its surroundings, GJ Moffat creates a taut thriller, a group of characters you would want to meet again and a gang of characters you most definitely wouldn't.
'positively crackles from first page to last... An astonishingly accomplished debut with Grisham-like elan... If you read just one thriller this year, make it this one' -- Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail 'Don't even think about stopping half-way through because this is a strictly one-sitting, white-knuckle adrenalin ride that will undoubtedly be one of the best debuts to hit the thriller shelves this year' -- Daily Record
GJ Moffat has been fascinated by courtroom melodramas starring the good and the bad guys since he was a boy. Although he became a lawyer, he always had the urge to write and his debut thriller brings these good guys and bad guys to life in glorious Technicolor. He is married with two little angel girls and is struggling to learn the electric guitar 'hitting more bum notes than good ones'.
