Murder in the Merchant City

by Angus McAllister - Find out more about the author

Annette Somerville, a young single mother, earns her living in a high-class Glasgow sauna parlour, scrupulously keeping her respectable home life separate from her professional activities. During a series of murders in the city, seemingly unconnected, Annette realises that all of the victims have been regular customers.

What should Annette do? No one else seems interested, and her boss makes it clear that going to the police will cost Annette her job. But Annette’s new boyfriend, a former customer of the sauna, could be the murderer’s next victim.

Can Annette continue to keep her two lives separate, or are they destined to violently clash?

Angus McAllister worked as a solicitor and university professor, and is now retired. For many years he wrote academic books and articles, as well as fiction. He is the author of the bestselling Close Quarters, and he lives in Glasgow.
