Dying of the Light

An Alice Rice Mystery (Book 3)
by Gillian Galbraith - Find out more about the author

Midwinter, a freezing night in Leith, near Edinburgh’s red light district. A policewoman’s flashlight stabs the darkness in a snow-covered cemetery. The circle of light stops on a colourless, dead face.

So begins the hunt for a serial murderer of prostitutes in Gillian Galbraith’s third Alice Rice mystery, Dying of the Light. Partly inspired by the reallife killings of prostitutes in Ipswich, this novel explores a hidden world where sex is bartered for money and drugs.

Off-duty, Alice’s home life continues its uneven course. Her romance with the artist Ian Melville offers the prospect of happiness, but is plagued by insecurity. Her demented but determined neighbour, Miss Spinnell, offers a new challenge to Alice’s patience at every meeting.

Gillian Galbraith was an advocate specialising in medical negligence cases and was the legal correspondent for the Scottish Farmer magazine. She has also written on legal matters for The Times. Now a fulltime writer of fiction, Gillian lives with her husband, young daughter and assorted animals and bees near Kinross.
