This is a throwback to their early days, new to CID, policing the violent streets of Glasgow.
What binds these books is this relationship and the heart for truth and justice especially as much of the police force appears full of career focused individuals and others open to some corruption.
DC Daley here is loyal to his pal DC Scott they socialise outside of work and have a bound that is real rather than the American version seen in crime drama like Starsky & Hutch or Cagney & Lacey. What makes it more real is the bleakness of Glasgow and the decline of that once great city.
DC Scott isn't bright but has good instincts, but when his own career appears to be going down the pan he is forced into a situation that threatens more than his livelihood. Sworn to secrecy he is tasked to ultilise his previous upbringing, alongside some of the toughest gangsters, to root out the bad apple in the CID who is enabling the gang leaders to evade arrest and facing charges for their criminal activities. Scott's simple task is to win their trust and find out their police informant.
However, if they find out his real mission his time as an undercover cop will be shortlived, another body in the Clyde. But how will Daley act when his friend appears to have changed sides and returned to his childhood mates. It begs the question, can people change or do they remain loyal to their kind- something 'Georges Simenon's Maigret novels called milieu.
I am committed to this author and these characters; these short stories underline his brilliance at telling stories and creating a series I fully recommend to all who love crime fiction.
