The stunning conclusion to Malcolm Mackay's lauded Glasgow Trilogy returns readers to the city's underworld: a place of dark motives, dangerous allegiances and sudden, tragic ends.

It begins with two deaths: a money-man and a police informant. Deaths that offer a unique opportunity to a man like Calum MacLean. A hit man who has finally had enough of killing.

Calum plans an unprecedented escape just as his employers need him the most. Glasgow's biggest criminal organizations are gearing up for a final, fatal confrontation.

The panic over Calum's abrupt disappearance may finally give Detective Michael Fisher the chance he need to close the case of a lifetime. But first, he must track down a man who has become a master of disappearance. A man who has staked his life on staying in the shadows.

Baker & Taylor
As assassin Calum MacLean plans an unprecedented escape from the Glasgow underworld, his boss, Peter Jamieson, needs him more than ever as the biggest crime organizations gear up for a final confrontation.

Great trilogy, and highly unusual that all three are this good, and the reader doesn't even have to learn to speak Glaswegian!

In this fitting conclusion to his Glasgow trilogy, Mackay has pulled off a rollercoaster ride with the same understated panache that distinguished the first two books. With the open nature of the ending, I only hope Mackay returns to continue this story.
