Carillion is back. After the farrago of the spring Royal visit, the summer has passed quietly but as the days get shorter tension is rising in the city; someone is killing drug dealers. Carillion has to persuade Police Scotland that the murders are the work of one individual and put an end to the killings. The hunt is on, but Carillion is not the only one looking for the murderer. The two Macs, heads of Glasgow’s underworld are also searching for the killer, but they have their own agendas.
DCI Carillion is again mired in more than just criminality. The pressure mounts when the killer contacts the press and openly mocks the authorities. And there’s a new member of the team to contend with. However, DI Pauline Macdonald doesn’t come without baggage. Her father, a well known corporate lawyer, has links with Glasgow’s underworld and the secretive Chinese hotel chain Bright White and unknown to Macdonald, he is on a police watch list.
And then there’s politics, Carillion is called to give evidence to a Parliamentary Committee whose remit is to oversee the operations of Police Scotland. The outcome of the meeting could have profound implications throughout the country.
Praise for Carillion: 10 days
An exciting very readable story. I especially enjoyed the contrast between the tensions within the Police Force and the desperate tensions within the mob.
The vibrant City of Glasgow is a great backdrop to this fast moving story. Plenty of loose ends to keep you guessing from the very first scene to the exciting final solution.
Nicely paced with enough intrigue to keep you reading. Plenty of twists and turns as our hero gets give the run around from all quarters.
Decent copper in a difficult situation, with a backdrop of ganglords fighting over turf while all the while trying to make sure a royal visit comes off without a hitch. It’s got all the usual tropes who can he trust? Is he being set up to take the fall? And an ex wife to keep him off balance. Set amidst the near incessant rain and post industrial landscape of Glasgow and the west of Scotland. What’s not to like?
