Author(s): Malcolm Mackay
This is an arresting, gripping novel of dark relationships and even darker moralities: introducing a remarkable new voice in crime fiction. A twenty-nine-year-old man lives alone in his Glasgow flat. The telephone rings; a casual conversation, but behind this a job offer. The clues are there if you know to look for them. He is an expert. A loner. Freelance. Another job is another job, but what if this organisation wants more? A meeting at a club. An offer. A brief. A target: Lewis Winter. It's hard to kill a man well. People who do it well know this. People who do it badly find out the hard way. The hard way has consequences. An arresting, gripping novel of dark relationships and even darker moralities, "The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter" introduces a remarkable new voice in crime fiction. The sequel "How A Gunman Says Goodbye" will follow soon...
Malcolm Mackay was born and grew up in Stornoway where he still lives. THE NECESSARY DEATH OF LEWIS WINTER, his debut, is the first of a trilogy set in the Glasgow underworld.
