Product description


Vividly evoked... If he is still most famous for selling 200,000 books electronically then that situation will undoubtedly change. Readers will discover that this second outing for Douglas Brodie is perhaps better than its acclaimed predecessor, The Hanging Shed. ― Independent

Ferris scores with some unexpected plot twists, a convincing portrayal of sad, edgy post-war Glasgow and a background of lost love. ― The Times

A rising star of Scottish literature.Scotsman

His writing has a great feel for authenticity and a terrific narrative drive. ― Val McDermid

The Hanging Shed is the word-of-mouth hit that is leaving its fellow thrillers in its wake... This is the latest addition to Scotland's proud tradition of fictional sleuths, and if the strenth of his debut is anything to go by, we'll be seeing a lot more of Douglas Brodie. ― Observer

Plunges the reader into a vividly evoked 1947 Glasgow... the real pleasure lies in the assured characterisation of the damaged, seen-it-all-before protagonists - and the flinty evocation of life in urban Scotland six decades ago. ― Independent

Ferris is a writer of real authority, immersing the reader into his nightmare world with a brand of scabrous writing reminiscent of William McIlvanney's Laidlaw... everything speaks of an original voice. ― Independent

The Hanging Shed broke e-book records. It wasn't a fluke. With its pitch-perfect dialogue and chilling undertones, Bitter Water is destined to join its predecessor as a bestseller. ― Daily Record --This text refers to the paperback edition.
