Suspense and Thriller

The body of a prominent Scottish MP is discovered outside his home in North East Fife. Unbelievably, Andrew Weatherly has killed his wife and two daughters before turning the gun on himself.

What drives someone to commit such an atrocity?

Inspector Tony McLean finds himself leading the investigation. The deeper he digs, the more apparent it becomes that he is being used in a game between shadowy factions from the world of power and privilege.

Pressure is on to wrap up the case. But McLean won't easily let go, even if he must tread on very dangerous territory.
