A drug-induced suicide, mis-adventure, or a cleverly calculated murder? London detective Charlotte West takes on Scotland.

An employee of an investment bank is found dead in his car by a freshwater loch in Ayrshire, Scotland, but there are few signs of foul play. Indeed, that the man had enough opioid painkillers in him to fell a shire horse, might easily be put down to over-exuberant self-indulgence.

But newly promoted and in charge of the investigation, DI Charlie West wants to probe further. And when the victim’s links to a minor crime involving a dead goat and an assault on an associate come to light, a suspicious motive begins to emerge.

DI West must explore shady financial dealings in the up-market parts of Glasgow, and connections to illicit drugs in its poorer quarters, to track the killer in what is now being treated as a murder investigation.

She is relieved that her mentor, Detective James Munro, once more steps out of his not-so tranquil retirement to lend a hand. His knowledge of the rural areas will be invaluable to a wily but green officer. Plus, he can run rings around their superior officer which will help when the pressure to solve the case mounts.

If you enjoy strong female leads, Scandinavian-style noir, police procedurals that closely follow the team dynamics of an investigation, and stories with a sucker punch of a twist, PERDITION is for you. It is the seventh book to centre on detectives Munro and West. You can enjoy it on its own or as part of a series. The other books are, in order of publication:

1. SHE
2. AVARICE
3. ENMITY
4. DUPLICITY
5. TERMINUS
6. TALION

All of these books are available in paperback and FREE with Kindle Unlimited.
