The tortured corpses of young alcoholics and drug addicts are turning up in Glasgow and only Eddie Henderson seems to know why. When he tries to tell the police, his information is ridiculed and he’s told to stop wasting their time.
One officer, junior detective Catherine Douglas, believes him, and together they set out to discover why the dregs of Glasgow’s underbelly are being found, dead and mutilated.
Someone is killing cats in the most gruesome manner in Glasgow the police take on local vet,Eddie Henderson, as a consultant when he raises concern that the killer has started targeting humans.
The first chapter of this book is not for the faint hearted and I found myself wincing and trying to read with my eyes hidden! It is gruesome but please persevere as this is a bloody good read!
It’s a raw, gritty Glaswegian read (glossary included at the back for those not familiar with the terms used) which provided WTF moments along with laughs – typical black Glasgow humour.
It’s fast paced with a strong plot and I am intrigued to see where Alan goes next – something slightly different from your usual police procedurals but with enough realism to keep you hooked!

Alan Jones is a Scottish Author with three gritty crime stories to his name, the first two set in Glasgow, the third one based in London. Living on the Clyde coast in Ayrshire, he works in the animal health industry, makes furniture and maintains and sails a 40 year old yacht in the Irish Sea and the West coast of Scotland. He writes under a pen name for work related reasons, and is married with grown up children. He loves reading, watching films and cooking. Last year he hung up his football boots as age and a dodgy ankle caught up with him.
His books are not for the faint-hearted, with some strong language, violence and various degrees of sexual content. The first two books also contain a fair smattering of Glasgow slang.
