Name change from Christopher to Chris, but this is the Brookmyre - writing straight crime it seems.  From the first few chapters I read last night there's just the slightly feeling of that dry, sarcastic humour so well loved by fans of his books.

From the Blurb:

Detective Catherine McLeod was always taught that in Glasgow, they don't do whodunit.  They do score-settling.  They do vendettas.  They do petty revenge.

It's a lesson that has served her well, but Glasgow is also a dangerous place to make assumptions.  Either way she looks at it, she recognises that the discovery of a dead drug-dealer in a back alley is merely a portent of further deaths to come.

Opening Lines:

It didn't seem like Glasgow.
