The third dark and gripping Harry McCoy thriller from the most exciting new voice in Scottish noir.
July 1973. The Glasgow drug trade is booming and Bobby March, the city’s own rock-star hero, has just overdosed in a central hotel.
Alice Kelly is thirteen years old, lonely. And missing.
Meanwhile the niece of McCoy’s boss has fallen in with a bad crowd and when she goes missing, McCoy is asked—off the books—to find her.
McCoy has a hunch that there’s a connection between these events. But time to prove it is running out, the papers are out for blood, and the department wants results fast. Justice must be served.
A beautifully written and pitch-perfect depiction of both the dark underbelly of 1970s Glasgow—its music, hard men, political infighting, class divisions, and the moral questions at its heart—and of the city’s perfect fallen angel, Harry McCoy.
Alan Parks was born in Scotland and attended The University of Glasgow where he was awarded a M.A. in Moral Philosophy. Bloody January is his debut novel.
