As Glasgow is buried under snow, a killer is on the loose and a deadly secret threatens to take Brodie to the edge of sanity

It's 1947 and the worst winter in memory: Glasgow is buried in snow, killers stalk the streets, and Douglas Brodie's past is engulfing him. It starts small. The Jewish community in Glasgow asks Douglas Brodie, ex-policeman turned journalist, to solve a series of burglaries. The police don't care and Brodie needs the cash. Brodie solves the crime but the thief is found dead, butchered by the owner of the house he was robbing. When the householder in turn is murdered, the whole community is in uproar—and Brodie's simple case of theft disintegrates into chaos. Into the mayhem strides Danny McRae—Brodie's old sparring partner from when they policed Glasgow's mean streets.Does Danny bring with him the seeds of redemption or retribution? As the murder tally mounts, Brodie discovers tainted gold and a blood-stained trail back to the concentration camps. Back to the horrors that haunt his dreams. Glasgow is overflowing with Jewish refugees. But have their persecutors pursued them? And who will be next to die?

Marvellous book! Ferris is referred to by a reviewer at "the Daily Mail" as the new Ian Rankin. Rather, think of him as the love child of Rankin and Helen MacInnes.
