A brutal attack. A mysterious demand for money. An unexpected kidnap... A superb novel from the two-time winner of the THEAKSTONS OLD PECULIER CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR AWARD and Costa shortlisted author of THE LESS DEAD

It's a peaceful Sunday evening in suburban Glasgow until a battered van pulls up to one home and disgorges a group of armed men in balaclavas. They smash into the house and hold the family at gunpoint and demand millions of pounds. Baffled, the assembled people protest that they don't have access to that sort of money. The attackers kidnap the elderly grandfather and storm off into the night.

Now senior policewoman Alex Morrow has been summoned to investigate the case. But there are so many mysteries. Who were the men? And why did they think a normal household concealed untold riches? The family is certainly not talking. But as she starts to delve deeper, she realises that there are dark secrets all around...

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of the most exciting writers to have emerged in Britain for years -- Ian Rankin
Her characterisations and settings are so authentic...There are probably now as many crime writers in Scotland as criminals, but Mina may be the pick of the bunch * DAILY TELEGRAPH *
Confirms Mina's place in the premier division...atmospheric, intense and full of the disturbing flavour of inner-city lowlife * GUARDIAN *
The narrative is inspired by a real-life kidnapping, but Mina parleys this into something richer and stranger...The final effect of STILL MIDNIGHT is both unsettling and exhilarating * INDEPENDENT *
There is a rich ordinariness, a believability, a recognisable quality about Mina's characters, who are better drawn than those of anyone else writing in her genre in Scotland * SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY *
Remember the name. This is a major talent heading for the top * LITERARY REVIEW *
One of the finest crime writers of her generation * DAILY TELEGRAPH *
