February's Son

Alan Parks

ON DARK NIGHTS, SOMEONE NEEDS TO LIGHT A FEW FIRES . . .

Bodies are piling up with messages carved into their chests. Rival gangs are competing for control. New drugs have arrived in Glasgow, and they’ve brought a different kind of violence to the broken city. The law of the street is changing and demons from Detective McCoy’s past are coming back to haunt him.

Can McCoy keep his head up for long enough to deliver justice?


'A riveting journey through the grim and gritty dark side of 1970s Glasgow . . . A powerful slab of tartan noir'
Herald

'A riveting book, begging to be read in as few sittings as possible . . . The macabre and morally ambivalent February’s Son is not one that will be quickly or easily forgotten'
The National

'1970s Glasgow hewn from flesh and drawn in blood'
