A stand-alone psychological thriller from the acclaimed author of the Alex Morrow novels that exposes the dark hearts of the guilty—and the innocent
The “trial of the century” in 1950s Glasgow is over. Peter Manuel has been found guilty of a string of murders and is waiting to die by hanging. But every good crime story has a beginning. Manuel’s starts with the murder of William Watt’s family. Looking no further that Watt himself, the police are convinced he is guilty. Desperate to clear his name, Watt turns to Manuel, a career criminal who claims to have information that will finger the real killer. As Watt seeks justice with the cagey Manuel’s help, everyone the pair meets has blood on their hands as they sell their version of the truth.
The Long Drop is an explosive novel about guilt, innocence, and the power of a good story to hide the difference.
