Description

The Quaker is watching you... In the chilling new crime novel from award-winning author Liam McIlvanney, a serial killer stalks the streets of Glasgow and DI McCormack follows a trail of secrets to uncover the truth... Winner of the 2018 McIlvanney Prize for Scottish Crime Book of the Year A city torn apart. It is 1969 and Glasgow has been brought to its knees by a serial killer spreading fear throughout the city. The Quaker has taken three women from the same nightclub and brutally murdered them in the backstreets. A detective with everything to prove. Now, six months later, the police are left chasing a ghost, with no new leads and no hope of catching their prey. They call in DI McCormack, a talented young detective from the Highlands. But his arrival is met with anger from a group of officers on the brink of despair. A killer who hunts in the shadows. Soon another woman is found murdered in a run-down tenement flat. And McCormack follows a trail of secrets that will change the city - and his life - forever...
