Product description


A celtic Gone Girl... guaranteed to keep you guessing

Black Widow is a stand-out thriller, reminiscent of the best of Nordic Noir but with its own vivid landscape

Brookmyre opens with a dramatic court scene, followed by a series of clever twists that challenge the reader to work out who is the victim of an extremely sophisticated crime

Exceptionally good - a knotty mystery that's not just richly, provocatively political but one of the most perceptive excavations of a dysfunctional marriage I can remember reading.... Brookmyre plays a cunning, careful game

I didn't know what was going to happen next in this epic thriller. I urge you to read it, too

It's a tour de force. It's such an important book, with fantastic characters - a really strong novel ... It keeps us guessing not just who did it, but why they did it, and cements Chris's place in the pantheon of great crime writers.

The story's characters are compelling and the mystery is evoked with scalpel-like precision

This is mystery plotting at its highest level, all the disparate strands forming into a web and then into a knot that tightens around victim, detective and reader

It's only as you're racing through the final tense pages, full of betrayal, revenge and shocking revelations, that you realise the brilliance behind the construction of this utterly compulsive, whipsmart thriller

A gripping, complex and classy crime novel.
