As Gray turns up the tension there's a manhunt across the wilderness of Scotland's Ardnamurchan Peninsula, and more twists and surprises round every corner in this skilfully crafted thriller.
Brings Glasgow to life in the same way Ian Rankin evokes Edinburgh.
Few have matched the sustained high quality of [Alex Gray's] output over twelve novels... What she delivers is sound characterisation, convincing Glaswegian atmosphere and superior writing.
The new master of Scottish crime writing.
Keep the Midnight Out is one of Alex Gray's very best books. The series featuring her protagonist Detective Superintendent Lorimer has gone from strength to strength.
The back story is moving, and the search for the killer dramatic as the story switches between the Mull killing and Lorimer's cold case in Glasgow of twenty years earlier. Highly recommended.
Move over Rebus.
This Scottish author is at the top of her game.
