Glasgows melting. The temperature is rising and so is the murder rate. Douglas Brodie, ex-policeman, ex-soldier and the newest reporter on the Glasgow Gazette, has no shortage of material for his column. But even Brodie balks at his latest subject a rapist who has been tarred and feathered by a balaclava-clad group. Brodie soon discovers a link between this horrific act and a series of brutal beatings. As violence spreads and the bodies pile up, Brodie and advocate Samantha Campbell are entangled in a web of deception and savagery. Brodie is swamped with stories for the Gazette. But how long before he and Sam become the headline."@en ;
