Publisher's Summary

When an elderly woman is found dead at her home, newly fledged DC Kirsty Wilson is called to the scene. It appears that the woman had a mysterious visitor in the early hours of that morning - someone dressed as a carer but with much darker intentions. It soon becomes obvious that this was not death by natural causes; in fact it was murder.

Before she can catch her breath, DC Wilson is thrown in at the deep end as another body turns up. This time it's a gruesome crime scene, the victim a well-known drug dealer from Glasgow's mean streets, and there's no question that this was a brutal execution.

The two cases appear to have nothing in common, but when a second vulnerable person is murdered in their sleep, the police realise that it's only a matter of time before the next victim emerges, and Detective Superintendent William Lorimer is called in to help DC Wilson investigate.

This case is big, and it's about to get more personal than either of them could have imagined....

Critic Reviews

"The Scottish writer Alex Gray has been building a reputation as one of the most reliable practitioners of crime fiction at work today, and Keep the Midnight Out is one of her very best books. The series featuring her protagonist Detective Superintendent Lorimer has gone from strength to strength." ( Good Book Guide)
"Brings Glasgow to life in the same way Ian Rankin evokes Edinburgh." ( Daily Mail)

New author for me

This is the first book of Alex Grey that I've listened to/read. I am certainly going to enjoy more of them. Very good book.
