Abstract:

Working for the Scottish Daily News, Paddy Meehan is trawling the city for a story that will get her off the terrible night shift to which she's been consigned by her male colleagues. When she accompanies the police to a domestic disturbance call-out, a woman, face bloodied, insists that the police leave and not prosecute - while her apparent assailant hands Paddy fifty pounds to keep the story out of the papers. Then the woman is found dead the next morning. Only Paddy cares enough about what's really happened to pursue a dark and brutal truth that could make her career - or kill her.
