The second Wheeler and Ross novel, from one of the most exciting new voices in the genre.
He buried his victim alive. And now he's escaped from prison and is on the run in the city.
Fiona Henderson, the daughter of the victim, has descended into a world of silence following her mother's murder - and has suddenly gone missing. Next, the body of a homeless person is found among the rubbish in a deserted alleyway.
As DIs Wheeler and Ross investigate, more suspicious deaths occur and a pattern emerges: the victims are all homeless. And so the police are pitched against a killer who is hellbent on a mission to rid the streets of the vulnerable and dispossessed.
With their investigation taking them further into Glasgow's netherworld, Wheeler and Ross uncover a criminal class ruthlessly willing to exploit the disaffected and a city of double standards, where morality is bought and sold.
When the killer begins stalking DI Wheeler, she and Ross realise that the threat has become personal.
