August 1966: the long hot summer of World Cup euphoria is suddenly shattered by a brutal crime that shocks a nation seemingly at ease with itself. Three characters' fates are irrevocably bound up with this event and consequences that reverberate across three decades: an ambitious detective dragged into intrigues of corruption; a gutter press journalist with a nose for a nasty story; and a disaffected petty criminal pushed over the edge by a violent crime that haunts him.

An epic story that looks at morality and corruption on both sides of the law and at the very heart of the state.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Brilliant ... you won't be able to put it down. * Mark Sanderson, Sunday Telegraph Summer Reading *
Compelling ... Arnott is a writer of many shades and, as in his debut, THE LONG FIRM, shows his penchant for combining challenging storylines with strong storytelling. * Max Davidson, Sunday Telegraph *
Arnott is a craftsman at what he does, a real cabinetmaker of pulp fiction, with everything nicely dovetailed * Sunday Times *
Intoxicating * Scotland on Sunday *
Propels Arnott further into a league of his own * Independent on Sunday *
Brilliant * Literary Review *
Easily as good, if not better, than the superb LONG FIRM ... A stylish tour-de-force * Big Issue *
