The Dead Hour [9781784709532]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The second novel in the Paddy Meehan series, from the two-time winner of the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award `Mina can chill your blood and break your heart in the same sentence' Mark Billingham Journalist Paddy Meehan is called to a domestic dispute in a wealthy Glasgow suburb. The woman bleeding from a head injury doesn't want any help and the well-dressed man beside her assures Paddy that everything is fine. But when she is given a GBP50 note to keep quiet, she becomes suspicious. The next morning, the woman is dead. Paddy has found the story she has been waiting for, yet she will lose all credibility if word gets out about her bribe. To make matters worse, the police who attended the scene are twisting the evidence. Only Paddy cares enough to pursue a dark truth that could make her career - or get her killed.
