The McIlvanney Prize 2022 Winner

It is our very great pleasure to confirm May God Forgive by Alan Parks as the winner of the McIlvanney Prize for Scottish Crime Book of the Year 2022.

A gruesome arson attack at a hairdresser’s escalates into a flurry of violence and terror, spelling an extraordinarily thorny case for Detective Harry McCoy in Parks’ powerful Glasgow-set police procedural.

 

“A terrific continuation of Alan Parks police procedural ‘month’ series. May God Forgive is every bit as entertaining, gritty, darkly humorous and steeped in the grimy underbelly of Glasgow as the previous books.”

Ayo Onatade, Chair of Judges

The Bloody Scotland Debut Prize 2022 Winner

Bloody Scotland nurtures new crime writers as well as established names, and the winner of this year’s Bloody Scotland Scottish Crime Debut of the Year is Welcome to Cooper by Tariq Ashkanani.

Arusa Qureshi, chair of judges for the Bloody Scotland Scottish Crime Debut of the Year described Welcome to Cooper as, ‘well-structured, bleak and just the right amount of disturbing.’ Tariq Ashkanani has crafted a terrific debut that doesn’t provide an obvious hero but instead, draws out the flaws and bad choices of its central characters.

£8.99
Paperback
10+ in stock
Usually dispatched within 48 hours
Revolving around blackmail, murder and a disgraced detective fighting for justice in a small Nebraska town, Welcome to Cooper is a dark, atmospheric and truly engrossing slice of closed community noir.
