Meet Davie McCall - not your average henchman. Abused and tormented by his father for fifteen years, there is a darkness in him searching for a way out. Under the wing of Glasgow's Godfather, Joe `the Tailor' Klein, he flourishes.

Joe the Tailor may be a killer, but there are some lines he won't cross, and Davie agrees with his strict moral code. He doesn't like drugs. He won't condone foul language. He abhors violence against women. When the Tailor refuses to be part of Glasgow's new drug trade, the hits start rolling. It's every man for himself as the entire criminal underworld turns on itself, and Davie is well and truly caught up in the action.

But an attractive young reporter makes him wonder if he can leave his life of crime behind and Davie must learn the hard way that you cannot change what you are. Blood City is a novel set in Glasgow's underworld at a time when it was undergoing a seismic shift. A tale of violence, corruption and betrayal, loyalties will be tested and friendships torn apart.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...positively delights in the city's dark underbelly complete with knives, razors, guns and gangs... Fierce, all too believable, and with a clear ear for the Glasgow dialect. --Daily Mail

Blood City signals the arrival of a new and sophisticated voice in Scotland's crime fiction community. --Glasgow Now

[Skelton has] taken well to fiction, skilfully building up the atmosphere, developing the characters and keeping the unexpected twists coming along. --Alastair Mabbot, The Herald

Jump in and you ll quickly be caught up in the atmosphere. Effortless prose, Glasgow banter and the wearing down of shoe leather as you charge through the streets of Douglas Skelton s vision of the mean city. --Michael J Malone, crimesquad.com
