The long-awaited fourth novel from the author of The Cutting Room and The Bullet Trick
Some secrets are best left buried … Knee-deep in the mud of an ancient burial ground, a winter storm raging around him, and at least one person intent on his death: how did Murray Watson end up here?
“Masterful…It is the most rounded of Welsh’s books to date, fulfilling the huge promise of her earlier work, combining a whip-cracking plot with a literary touch that lifts her way above her genre colleagues…so much more than another literary mystery.”
