The Hanging Shed
Glasgow, 1946. The war is over, and Douglas Brodie is back home. A young boy has been raped and murdered, and Brodie's childhood friend Hugh Donovan, a recluse mutilated by war, is the only suspect. Convinced of Donovan's innocence, Brodie trawls the streets for answers with advocate Sam Campbell, uncovering a deadly Glasgow razor gang prepared to slaughter innocents to protect their dark and dirty secrets. But with time running out for Donovan and Sam missing, Brodie reverts to his wartime role as a trained killer. It's them or him...
Glasgow's melting. The temperature is rising and so is the pressure on ex-policeman Douglas Brodie and advocate Sam Campbell. A rapist has been tarred and feathered by a balaclava-clad group, and Brodie soon discovers a link between this horrific act and a series of brutal beatings. He's swamped with stories for his new Glasgow Gazette column, but how long before he and Sam become the headline?
