Gray's best book yet. A thoroughly impressive outing from a writer ready to join the top rank of crime authors. This is a re-issue of a book published in 2011, now as an ebook, and one in a series of DCI Lorimer tales. It is my first with the series and with the author, Alex Gray.

Gray's best book yet. I was surprised at the spare writing style and short chapters. I had expected something a bit more descriptive, as I have come to expect of British police procedurals.

Alex Gray Sleep like the dead We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep. William Shakespeare,The Tempest It always began in the dark. Not the crepuscular velvet blue of romantic nights but the sort of total blackness one would find deep underground – a coal-black cleft where one wrong move might mean stepping out into a bottomless void. Detective Chief Inspector William Lorimer felt the swish of the plastic tape behind him as he entered the crime scene.

But the show must go on, and when DCI Lorimer and psychologist Solly Brightman are called in they uncover a series of irrevocably tangled relationships between the orchestra members. Millar had been involved in a string of homosexual relationships and was well known for playing his lovers off against one another - but were his controversial dalliances really enough to incite cold-blooded and calculated murder?

We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep. Detective Chief Inspector William Lorimer felt the swish of the plastic tape behind him as he entered the crime scene

We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep. William Shakespeare,The Tempest. It was such an ordinary two-up, two-down mid-terrace, a modest suburban home, like thousands of others in and around this city in a district not particularly known for a high rate of crime. And certainly not for ones like this.

Today merited the sort of attention to detail that Patsy had shown her reflection in the dressing table mirror.

Today merited the sort of attention to detail that Patsy had shown her reflection in the dressing table mirror you for the first time always looked at your face, and she wanted to be remembered by the man from MI6 as Clark, that bright woman from Glasgow. She knocked on the detective superintendent’s office door, glad that she was ready for this meeting, hoping that her eagerness would not show, like the lacy edge of a fancy slip peeping below her hemline. The image made the police officer.

Book in the DCI Lorimer Series). Marianne's ex-husband Kenneth Scott is gunned down in his home and two men are found dead in Billy's West End flat. But Billy is on the run to Spain, with the money that was meant to pay the hit man who killed Kenneth. Now the hit man remains in Glasgow, seeking not just his fee for his job but the elusive Marianne.

There's a hitman in Glasgow: unpaid and angry, he's decided to settle his own debts... Elsewhere in the city, Marianne Brogan can't sleep. She's plagued by a nightmare: someone in the shadows, whispering threats, stalking her every move. To make matters worse, Marianne can't get hold of her brother, Billy. Despite knowing some shady characters from Glasgow's underworld, Billy's always been there for her - until now.DCI Lorimer and his team are faced with a string of seemingly unconnected but professional killings. Without witnesses or much conclusive evidence to build a case, the officers are drawing a blank. Criminal psychologist Solly Brightman is off the case due to budget cuts. But Solly is more closely connected to the murders than he could possibly know . . . And as the hitman plans a bloody ransom to get his fee, the race is on to find out just who hired him - and who's next on the hit list.

Good to meet the characters again. Hearing about their lives whilst following the plot to its conclusion adds interest to the book.

I have read every one of Alex Gray's novels featuring Lorimer. Each book has been entertaining and enjoyable. This is definitely one of her best efforts.

Enjoyed that there were plots within the plots. The characters are very complex.

Favorite character: DCI Lorimer and Detective Constable Frothy. Solly comes in close as well. Why? They have drive and compassion. Are smart and kind. Empathize and are fair. They want to get justice no matter where it leads and are blind to any prejudices that may be there. It is about getting justice for the victim and finding the truth.

Lorimer and his staff are on the hunt for a killer. But it seems that there are multiple murders that seem unrelated but killed by the same person. While trying to figure out why they stumble on clues that bring in a past and Solly unwittingly. While this is going on we get some personal situations as well such as the notes to Frothy, Lorimer and his wife’s relationship and what she is going through and the Hundi.

the story is fast paced and really keeps you on the edge of your seat. You try to figure it all out and the clues drive you batty because they are just enough to whet the appetite but not quite give you the whole picture for they slowly reveal everything. the personal aspect of the characters makes this more real and a great way to distract your mind and tease you about what you know. Those little nuggets of clues drive you to want more. And even after this one is solved there is still a wee bit of a mystery hanging around and it has you wanting to get the next book that has Lorimer in it. The writing is fluid and grabs you with likeable characters, a mystery that captivates you and has you play detective and a story that is complex with the multiple plots and storylines that weave together effortlessly and beautfiully.

This is a re-issue of a book published in 2011, now as an ebook, and one in a series of DCI Lorimer tales. It is my first with the series and with the author, Alex Gray. I was surprised at the spare writing style and short chapters. I had expected something a bit more descriptive, as I have come to expect of British police procedurals. Perhaps the Scottish nature caused the shift in style of this series. While the story itself was fine, it didn't pull me in enough. I wasn't fully engaged with any of the characters or the setting, although I would have really enjoyed the opportunity. I read the book on a 100 degree day in the desert Southwest. A book set in rainy Scotland seemed just the ticket for a weekend afternoon. But I couldn't quite get there, try as I might. I received my copy from the publisher through edelweiss.
