"It begins with two deaths: a money-man and a police informant. Deaths that offer a unique opportunity to a man like Calum MacLean. A hit man who has finally had enough of killing. Calum plans an unprecedented escape just as his employers need him the most. Glasgow's biggest criminal organizations are gearing up for a final, fatal confrontation. The panic over Calum's abrupt disappearance may finally give Detective Michael Fisher the chance he need to close the case of a lifetime. But first, he must track down a man who has become a master of disappearance. A man who has staked his life on staying in the shadows" --

Great trilogy, and highly unusual that all three are this good, and the reader doesn't even have to learn to speak Glaswegian!

In this fitting conclusion to his Glasgow trilogy, Mackay has pulled off a rollercoaster ride with the same understated panache that distinguished the first two books. With the open nature of the ending, I only hope Mackay returns to continue this story.
