The new DCI Lorrimer novel
When Chief Inspector Lorimer returns from his holiday on the island of Mull, he feels a welcome sense of calm. But it doesn t last long. Kelvin FC s new star midfielder is found brutally stabbed to death in his own home and, with his wife apprehended trying to leave the country, a seemingly straightforward new case begins. But the grisly murder of a referee after a Kelvin match throws light on some dark secrets at the ground. And when the latest signing to the club becomes the latest victim in a string of killings, Lorimer knows there s a serial killer on the loose - one that s only beginning to show his true colours.
As lies emerge and tensions build, the players and managers live under the constant threat of becoming the next Kelvin fatality. Building to a dark and suspenseful climax, Pitch Black is Alex Gray s most powerful work to date.
Gray more than holds her own against the likes of Rankin and McDermid...it would take a reader with the skills of her hero to come up with the killer's identity before the last few page s' Express
