(From the publisher):
Paddy Meehan thinks she might have it all: flash car, flat, job as one of Scotland’s leading newspaper columnists, and a giant packet of biscuits all to herself.
But her relaxed Saturday night in front of the TV is shattered when the police knock on her door. Someone close to her has died, they tell her, smiling sympathetically. She prepares herself for the worst – and is staggered when they tell her who it is.
Terry Patterson has been found naked in a ditch, executed with a shot through his temple. He was her first ever lover and her hero, the sort of journalist she always aspired to be.
Paddy chucked him months ago, but she’s down as his next of kin. He has also left her everything in his will: a house in Ayrshire, boxes of notebooks, and a folder.
What was Terry trying to tell her? As Paddy begins her investigation into his murder, she realizes that if the secret he was about to expose was worth killing for, she – and those closest to her – are in terrible danger ...
