A budding romance with Scotland Yard profiler, Kyla Fraser is interrupted when MacLeod takes a job as a “night auditor” contrived to set him up for a murder he did not commit. He finds out that the ruthless Glaswegian mob is behind his newfound troubles, and he makes the grievous error of absconding with their money as a ploy to negotiate his way out of his predicament. Pursued by the police, MI5, and the mob, MacLeod turns to Kyla for help but seems to get even more inextricably caught up in Bond-like intrigue that takes him on a cut to the chase, that ends in an exciting showdown with top mobsters Alistair Ascot and Douglas McMurphy, on the banks of the River Clyde.
“This is a fast-paced novel that will entangle you in a web of political and corporate corruption, as well as introducing you to the Glasgow underworld. This is a mile a minute ride that you will not be able to put down (I read the entire 307 pages in one-day). This book will become a classic in the British crime genre, guaranteed it is definitely worth the read.”
