A teenage girl is missing in Scotland's fourth city. Her godfather is a known criminal and her mother is hiding a dark secret. For Private Investigator J. McNee, what starts as a favour for a friend soon becomes a nightmare as he races to find Mary Furst before it's too late. The Good Son launced the career of Russel D. McLean, introducing McNee to crime readers. McLean and McNee are back with another slab of Scottish noir at its best.
