Bodies are piling up with grisly messages carved into their chests. Rival gangs are competing for control of Glasgow's underworld and it seems that Cooper, McCoy's oldest friend, is caught up in it all. Detective Harry McCoy's first day back at work couldn't have gone worse. New drugs have arrived in Glasgow, and they've brought a different kind of violence to the broken city. The law of the street is changing and now demons from McCoy's past are coming back to haunt him. But vengeance always carries a price, and it could cost McCoy more than he ever imagined. The waters of Glasgow corruption are creeping higher, as the wealthy and dangerous play for power. And the city's killer continues his dark mission. Can McCoy keep his head up for long enough to solve the case? Bruised and battered from the events of Bloody January, McCoy returns for a breathless ride through the ruthless world of 1970s Glasgow.

Parks' writing style is to the point . . . The plot zips along . . . McCoy is a man many will enjoy spending time with. Casting agents will already be weighing which actor should pull on his raincoat * * iNews * *
The no-holds-barred action and dialogue smack you in the face like a Glasgow kiss. Cracking * * The Sun * *

A winning formula . . . All the elements of the classic crime page turner are here * * Yorkshire Post * *

Reading February’s Son is like taking a grand tour of the mean streets of 1970’s Glasgow, primarily through its drinking dens. From The Variety to Mallons to the Muscular Arms, by way of the St. Enoch Hotel, this is... More
