A beautiful young woman is disturbed in her home in a wealthy suburb in Glasgow in the middle of the night by two young men. When they leave, she is dead.

Hundreds of miles away, in the garden of his mansion in the Kent countryside, a now disgraced millionaire banker swings from a tree, dead by his own hand. What, if anything, connects the two violent deaths?

That is the question Glasgow DS Alex Morrow, heavily pregnant with twins, must answer -- but first she has to cut through a tangled web of lies and evasions if she is to discover the truth.

This wonderfully plotted combination of police procedural, psychological thriller and social comment leap-frogs Denise Mina to the top rank of Scotland's crime-writing scene. myles mcweeney
