The first two novels in the Douglas Brodie series were very good noir thrillers - fast-paced, explosive and full of black humour. This one is very different and takes the Brodie series to another and much darker level.

Brodie is asked to investigate a spate of burglaries in Glasgow's post-war Jewish community. But when the burglar is found murdered it gradually becomes clear that there is a connection that leads back to the horrors of the concentration camps - horrors that Brodie has been trying to forget since his role as interrogator of war criminals after the war.

Ferris handles this dark and difficult subject with a great deal of sensitivity and humanity. The details he gives of some of the dreadful acts that were carried out in the camps are kept to the minimum necessary for the development of the story - Ferris carefully avoids the use of gratuitous detail. Instead he concentrates on how these events are still affecting his characters, including a very moving portrayal of what we would now call post-traumatic stress disorder. As I read, I couldn't help but think of the men of my father's generation, the ones who came back - a generation who mainly bottled up their feelings about their war experiences, who talked of the camaraderie of war but not the horrors, and I felt that in some way Ferris was giving these men a voice that the stiff-upper-lip culture of the time had perhaps denied them.

But although the subject matter means that this book is much darker than the previous ones, this is also a first-rate, tightly plotted thriller - well-paced, plenty of action and still with room for occasional flashes of humour. Brodie's relationship with Sam is developed further and Danny McRae, hero of Ferris' other series, plays a part in this one too.

The black humour is great, loved Douglas and Dannie together. The dark days after the War, and the Glasgow environment were perfectly depicted.
I was waiting for this book to come out, and I loved it.
I have now read all of Gordon Ferris books, and I have recommended them to all my family and friends, read them in sequence and enjoy!

I haven't yet read The Hanging Shed but I considered Bitter Water a great read, and this one, though very different, impressed me just as much.
I read this book on one of the coldest days of the present 'spring' so it was not very hard to appreciate the cold that dominates this novel.
1947. Worst winter of the century. Snow piled in ever-deepening drifts in Glasgow, in Britain, in Hamburg. As a child I well remember that winter!
Brodie is still working for his newspaper, still doing a bit of detective work on the side. Jewish friends employ him to investigate a series of robberies and very soon the story is knee deep in violence and murder.
However, this time the violence spreads beyond Glasgow, to the concentration camps of WW2 and to the post war trials. Brodie was involved in the interrogation of Nazi officials as a Major in the army at the end of the war, and through his lawyer girlfriend and people very high up in the police and intelligence he is persuaded to return to the army on a limited contract and go to Hamburg to give evidence but also to ask questions about possible escape routes for leading Nazis still being used post war.
Brodie, beginning to realise and cope with the extent to which he has been traumatised by his war experiences; Samantha, lawyer, and his landlady and lover; Danny McRae, an old friend who's war has deeply affected him as well; the Glasgow Jewish community and its reactions to the struggle for the state of Israel; the cops, good and bad; the hunters and the hunted; post war Glasgow itself, all make this a complex and deeply satisfying read. The twist at the end came as a surprise.
I'm very much looking forward to the next Brodie book, and to catching up with Danny McRae, and wondering where the series will go from here.

Gordon Ferris books are set in post-war Glasgow and they have a gritty realism that I love. The main character is a former soldier who has turned reporter/ detective and who is struggling to comprehend the things he witnessed in the second world war. Ferris' books are real page-turners & I would thoroughly recommend to all. I would think this is particularly suited to readers who may be familiar with Glasgow and those who may remember Britian in the late 1940's.

The exquiste combination of truth and fiction, where much of the former which still lives so fresh in the minds of many people alive today,gives for a fast paced read where you have a vested interest in Brodie's quest to recapture the Nazis at large in his city.Reality is never compromised for a twist, historical fact never sacrificed for added pathos or gristle. The grim subject matter needs no embelishment and remains paramount throughout, but is tempered by the wonderfully drawn loving relationship between Brodie and his professional woman Sam ,bound by the confines of the day which dictate that a woman cannot be both married and a working Barrister! Let them find a way round this in the next book which I eagerly await ,however will the bringing together of Ferris's two good guys for the first time, Brodie and his old Army mucker McCrae from London, mean we are to lose out on two books at a time now?
