WHO IS TO BLAME WHEN NO ONE IS INNOCENT?
There’s a heatwave in Glasgow and the drugs trade is booming. The whole force is searching for missing thirteen-year-old Alice Kelly. All except Harry McCoy, who has been taken off the case after a run-in with the boss, and is instead sent alone to investigate the death of rock-star Bobby March, who has just overdosed in the Royal Stuart hotel.
The papers want blood. The force wants results. McCoy has a hunch. But does he have enough time?

Alan Parks has worked in the music industry for over twenty years. His debut novel Bloody January was shortlisted for the Grand Prix de Littérature Policière. He lives and works in Glasgow.
This is set in the grim, dark world of 1970’s policing. It’s a graphic novel in that it’s very honest about not just police work at the time, but life in the time and place it’s set.
I devoured it because I’m a fan of authors who don’t shy away from the realities of the time they write in. It’s compelling and the characters are jumping from the pages to drag you into their world. I for one gladly went.
I really enjoyed this book and devoured it pretty quickly. I’m looking forward to reading the April Dead!
