Product description


Compulsive reading from page one to the shattering conclusion...Manda Scott's writing is simply beautiful - Denise Mina

Scott's cinematic style has both sweep and depth...Besides exposing the gristle and bone of human violence, Scott astutely probes the aftermath of crime - the loss of moral certitude that truly shatters the soul. - Marilyn Stasio

Gritty, literate, and engaging, NO GOOD DEED is an exceptional achievement. Manda Scott is a fine writer, with a great future - Julia Wallis Martin

'Uncompromising...brilliantly depicted' Gemma O'Connor

'one of the most remarkable thrillers of the year'. Amazon

Dark, taut and edgy, Manda Scott's debut thriller exerts an emotional grip that tightens to a twisting stranglehold. There's not a word wasted in this unflinching novel, which still manages to demonstrate the profound power of love. It's a joy to read something so intelligent, so direct and so beautifully crafted - Val McDermid

'Manda Scott has bypassed all expectations by producing a dark and visceral thriller that's awesomely powerful and a work that should project her to the vanguard of contemporary crime writing...Good as they are (previous novels), these books are light years away from the scorching impact of No Good Deed...This is the best crime novel of the year so far.' W Magazine

Manda Scott picks us up by the scruff of the neck, drags us kickin

Product Description

Manda Scott has written a powerful thriller debut, the terrifying tale of a lone woman pitted against an enigmatic killer—a man who deals out death without a second thought...

For Detective Inspector Orla McLeod, violence is a way of life. As a child, her own world was ripped apart by a brutal, unforgettable moment of terror. So when the Special Branch operation she is spearheading goes disastrously wrong, she will do everything she can to protect the nine-year-old boy caught in the cross fire. For Jamie Buchanan was the sole witness to an act of savagery committed in cold blood by a man rapidly becoming one of the most feared criminals in Europe.
Orla and her partner, Luke Tyler, had risked their lives to infiltrate Tord Svensen’s criminal world. Together they had gone deep undercover in a Glasgow tenement to get close enough to bring him down. Then in a series of harrowing events, everything in Orla’s life would change forever.
Now Orla finds herself haunted by the memory of what happened—and tormented by the guilt she feels over her own survival. What keeps her going are the promises she made to her partner Luke and to orphaned Jamie Buchanan. Jamie is the only person who’s seen Tord Svensen’s face, the only one able to ID him. Officially pulled off the Svensen case, Orla spirits Jamie away to the only place she feels safe, a lonely cottage under the shadow of a snowcapped Scottish mountain. But there will be no sanctuary for them in the Highlands. For, like Orla, the hunter who pursues them knows exactly what to do to survive. And that means putting both Orla and her vulnerable young charge in the grave.
