Product Description


"'We might just have found a new Ian Rankin.' Daily Mail * 'A rising star of Scottish literature' - Scotsman * 'His writing has a great feel for authenticity and a terrific narrative drive.' - Val McDermid * 'Ferris is a writer of real authority, immersing the reader into his nightmare world with a brand of scabrous writing reminiscent of William McIlvanney's Laidlaw... everything speaks of an original voice.' - Independent * 'Deft, disturbing and as thoroughly grimy as its 1946 Glasgow setting, The Hanging Shed is the word of mouth hit that is leaving its fellow thrillers in its wake every bit as good as its electronic sales would suggest... This is the latest addition to Scotland's proud tradition of fictional sleuths, and if the strength of his debut is anything to go by, we'll be seeing a lot more of Douglas Brodie.' - Observer * 'Ferris scores with some unexpected plot twists, a convincing portrayal of sad, edgy postwar Glasgow and a background of lost love.' - The Times"

Product Description

Glasgow's melting. The temperature is rising and so is the murder rate. Douglas Brodie, ex-policeman, ex-soldier and now newest reporter on the Glasgow Gazette, has no shortage of material for his crime column.

But even Brodie baulks 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 body count rises, 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?
