It’s June. There’s a heatwave. A ‘satanic’ heavy-metal star is performing four nights at Hampden Park and Glasgow’s been invaded by thousands of tattooed ‘devil worshippers’ from across Europe. When two old-aged sisters are found axed to death in their apartment, DCI Pat Curzon – AKA The Dirty Rouge – thinks he knows where the blame lies, until somebody finds a literary thread connecting the axe killings with an apparently unrelated second murder event.
So, sleepless and full of whisky, Curzon prowls the sandstone streets of his beloved hometown, hunting for a depraved serial killer that’s emulating death scenes from the books of Fyodor Dostoyevsky. In the process, he stumbles across crucial new evidence from a past-case and discovers dark life-changing secrets about his own family.
Lovingly written, with Scotland’s edgiest city represented to maximum noir effect, Glasgow Cross is Book 4 in The Dirty Rouge detective series.
