Even the coldest case will eventually crack. November 1993. Scotland is in the grip of the coldest winter in living memory and the Lake of Menteith is frozen over. A young man and woman walk across the ice to the historic island of Inchmahome which lies in the middle of the lake. Only the man comes back. In the spring, as staff prepare the abbey ruins for summer visitors, they discover the unidentifiable remains of the body of a girl, her skull violently crushed. Twenty years later, present day. Retired detective Alan Narey is still haunted by the unsolved crime. Desperate to relieve her father's conscience DS Rachel Narey returns to the Lake of Menteith and unofficially reopens the cold case. With the help of police photographer Tony Winter, Rachel discovers that the one man her father had always suspected was the killer has recently died. Risking her job and reputation, Narey prepares a dangerous gambit to uncover the killer's identity - little knowing who that truly is. Despite the freezing temperatures the ice cold case begins to thaw, and with it a tide of secrets long frozen in time are suddenly and shockingly unleashed. Praise for Craig Robertson 'Cracking dialogue, a captivating plot and that wonderful sense of place' The Australian 'A revenge thriller with a twist' Sun
It's a damp Saturday morning in Glasgow when Strathclyde CID are called to the Necropolis, the city's vast Victorian cemetery, to photograph the body of a young woman. Her clothes in disarray, she has been laid out ritually over one of the old slab tombs, where she was found by an early morning dog walker. The following day, another girl is found, this time at the foot of a statue in the Southern Necropolis. Retired detective Danny Neilson is convinced that the two murders are linked to the infamous unsolved Red Silk cases that he worked on in the 1960s. Danny is haunted by the memory of the investigation into the four young women who were murdered after nights spent in the city's dance halls. In his retirement he works as a taxi rank supervisor, keeping a watchful eye on the young women who stagger out of nightclubs in the early hours in a bid to assuage his guilt. With his nephew, police photographer Tony Winter, he visits Archibald Atto, the convicted serial killer suspected by many of being Red Silk. Atto has boasted of killing many more women than those he was charged with but has always refused to say anything about that particular case. Atto continues to play games and keep his secrets, much to Winter and Neilson's frustration - then his DNA is discovered on the victims. But how, when he's been behind bars for the past 20 years?
Glasgow is being terrorised by a serial killer the media have nicknamed The Cutter. The murders have left the police baffled. There seems to be neither rhyme nor reason behind the killings; no kind of pattern or motive; an entirely different method of murder each time, and nothing that connects the victims except for the fact that the little fingers of their right hands have been severed. If DS Rachel Narey could only work out the key to the seemingly random murders, how and why the killer selects his victims, she would be well on her way to catching him. But as the police, the press and a threatening figure from Glasgow's underworld begin to close in on The Cutter, his carefully-laid plans threaten to unravel - with horrifying consequences.
A series of high-profile shootings by a lone sniper leaves Glasgow terrorised and police photographer Tony Winter - a man with a tragic hidden past - mystified. Who is behind the executions of some of the most notorious drug lords in the city? As more shootings occur - including those of police officers - the authorities realise they have a vigilante on their hands. Meanwhile, Tony investigates a link between the victims and a schoolboy who has been badly beaten. Seemingly unconnected, they share a strange link. As Tony delves deeper, his quest for the truth and his search for the killer lead him down dark and dangerous paths.
