_______________

Was it mercy? Or murder?

When newly fledged DC Kirsty Wilson is called to the house of an elderly woman, what appears to be a death by natural causes soon takes a sinister turn when it is revealed that the woman had a mysterious visitor in the early hours of that morning – someone dressed as a community nurse, but with much darker intentions.

As Kirsty is called to another murder – this one the brutal execution of a well-known Glasgow drug dealer – she finds herself pulled into a complex case involving vulnerable people and a sinister service that offers them and their loved ones a ‘release’.

Detective Superintendent William Lorimer is called in to help DC Wilson investigate and as the body count rises, the pair soon realise that this case is about to get more personal than either of them could have imagined . . .

Reviews

Alex Gray describes her characters with sensitivity and the investigations in careful detail.
Literary Review
As Gray turns up the tension there's a manhunt across the wilderness of Scotland's Ardnamurchan Peninsula, and more twists and suprises round every corner in this skilfully crafted thriller.
Peterborough Evening Telegraph
Brings Glasgow to life in the same way Ian Rankin evokes Edinburgh.
Daily Mail
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 Times (Marcel Berlins)
Rightly acclaimed in her native Scotland, it is important to remind the rest of the country just how impressive Gray's work is . . . she has brought Glasgow's dark underworld to life in the same way Ian Rankin did Edinburgh's . . . Told with characteristic panache, it confirms what an excellent crime writer Gray has become.
Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail
She definitely lives up to the hype . . . It's a fantastic plot, one that has a very interesting and topical debate at the heart of it, and keeps you guessing to the very last few pages . . . This was my first foray with Alex Gray - but it definitely won't be my last.
Press & Journal, Book of the Week
The Scottish writer Alex Gray has been building a reputation as one of the most reliable practitioners of crime fiction at work today, and Keep the Midnight Out is one of her very best books. The series featuring her protagonist Detective Superintendent Lorimer has gone from strength to strength.
