Finalist, Dundee International Book Prize, 2013. Story-hungry journalist Doug McGregor is out to track down a convicted rapist, on the run after being hounded out of his home by a lynch mob. But a grisly suicide in the heart of tourist Edinburgh piques Doug's curiosity and diverts his attention - especially once his police contact and occasional drinking partner, DS Susie Drummond, reveals that the victim is connected to a prominent controversial politician. Together, they find themselves unravelling a story of secrets, drug abuse, violence, murder...and the ultimate taboo. Action-packed from the very start, and with enough twists and turns to shock and surprise even the most hard-bitten crime fan, 'Falling Fast' is the first of a trilogy. It marks the arrival of a new crime-writing talent who is bound to appeal to aficionados of Scottish crime greats such as Ian Rankin and Val McDermid.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Shortlisted for Deanston Scottish Crime Book of the Year. "Gripping action... menacing undercurrents... believable... atmospheric. The chapters are a series of stabs, swift, to the point. The knots in the plot unravel with timely stealth." - Tom Adair, The Scotsman. "As a veteran newspaper reporter himself, Neil Broadfoot is in prime place to bring his experience of working the crime beat on Scotland's streets to the pages of his first book, one in a series set to be released. A great meaty crime read with a true grit core." - Laura Piper, STV. "Crisp dialogue, characters you believe and a prose style that brings you back for more. It's a fine addition to a growing roster of noir titles with a tartan tinge." - Douglas Skelton. "Broadfoot is the real deal. A superb debut." - Crimesquad.com. "A certainty of purpose, a clarity of voice and a real sense of danger - He's [up there] with some of the finest crime writers Scottish fiction has to offer." - Russel D. McLean. "Gritty [with] a strong identity; very tartan noir crime fiction. The shock opening hooked me in and the well-developed characters, back stories, plot and sub-plots kept that interest going." - Dundee Book Prize judge.

“A great new Scottish noir discovery...”

I was instantly drawn to the two main protagonists, Doug McGregor- dogged reporter, and his police contact DS Susie Drummond, and the relationship that exists between them. I loved the underlying feeling of them both... More
