Bodies are piling up with messages carved into their chests. Rival gangs are competing for control. New drugs have arrived in Glasgow, and they’ve brought a different kind of violence to the broken city. The law of the street is changing and demons from Detective McCoy’s past are coming back to haunt him.
Can McCoy keep his head up for long enough to deliver justice?
A Note From the Publisher
Book two of Alan Parks' Detective Harry McCoy series.
'A riveting journey through the grim and gritty dark side of 1970s Glasgow . . . A powerful slab of tartan noir'
'Pitch-black tartan noir, set in Seventies Glasgow . . . Compelling . . . With an emotional heart that's hard to ignore'
'[An] engaging tartan noir page turner'
'A riveting book, begging to be read in as few sittings as possible . . . The macabre and morally ambivalent February’s Son is not one that will be quickly or easily forgotten'
PRAISE FOR BOOK ONE, BLOODY JANUARY:
'An old-school cop novel written with wit and economy . . . Think McIlvanney or Get Carter'
'A potent tale of death . . . Alan Parks's excellent first novel propels him into the top class of Scottish noir authors . . . Detective Harry McCoy . . . is so noir that he makes most other Scottish cops seem light grey'
The Times, Book of the Month
'1970s Glasgow hewn from flesh and drawn in blood'
'The latest star of Tartan noir — perhaps even a successor to the late, great William McIlvanney . . . Gripping, utterly authentic and nerve-jangling, this novel announces a fine new voice in crime writing'
'Gripping and violent, dark and satisfying. I flew through it'
