Doug McGregor, Edinburgh journalist is on a mission to track down convicted rapist, Derek McGinty. Meanwhile in the city centre a young woman plunges to her death from the Scott Monument – she is the daughter of a prominent politician. Falling Fast focuses on the links between the two individuals with Doug working alongside his police contact, DS Susie Drummond.
Falling Fast is an intriguing and gripping book, fantastic plot with a depth that makes you think and twists and turns that keep you hooked. The book brings Edinburgh to life with its vivid descriptions and the characters immediately engage with the reader. The relationship between Doug and Susie is a “will they/won’t they” one and I’m looking forward to reading the next in the series to see where it is going.
Another fantastic Scottish author that I’d highly recommend!
