, Denise Mina's compelling sequel to the award-winning crime novel Garnethill
, returns to Glasgow's bleaker precincts and the untidy life of Maureen O'Donnell. It also confronts Maureen with another grisly case of murder - this time of Ann Harris, who was nursing a couple of broken ribs and reeking of alcohol the last time Maureen saw her at the women's shelter and who has now turned up dead hundreds of miles away, in London, under a mattress on the banks of the Thames.
Eager to escape some family difficulties of her own, Maureen travels to London to determine the circumstances of Ann's brutal death. There, in the city's seedy underworld of criminal exiles and dangerous drug lords, Maureen strives desperately to piece together the horror of Ann's last days - and to save herself from a similarly ugly fate.
