Description
The breathtaking, devastating second novel in the acclaimed Glasgow Trilogy, a Deanston Scottish Crime Book of the Year.
How does a gunman retire? Frank MacLeod was the best at what he does. Thoughtful. Efficient. Ruthless. But with his health failing him, how long before he's no longer of use to his employers? A new job. A target. But something is about to go horribly wrong. And up-and-coming hitman Calum MacLean will be called upon to pick up the pieces.
Most gunmen say goodbye to the world with a bang. Frank's still here. No longer in his prime, certainly. But with decades of experience at the top of his profession. Underestimating such a man could prove to be deadly.

        Starred review from April 20, 2015
        Picking up directly where the first installment, The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter, left off, Mackay's gripping and surprisingly poignant second book in his Glasgow Trilogy traces the downward spiral of 62-year-old gunman Frank MacLeod's career. Frank, considered the best in the city with an impressive body count in his wake, has been on the mend following hip surgery, but he's eager to get back to doing what he does best: killing people. Peter Jamieson, one of Glasgow's biggest crime bosses, is pleased that his top man is back in action and sends Frank to take care of an upstart dealer, Tommy Scott, who's working for one of Jamieson's rivals, Shug Francis. When Frank botches the job, Jamieson is forced to call in Calum MacLean, his new gunman, whom readers will remember as the killer of Lewis Winter, among others, in the first book. Mackay avoids the easy young-vs.-old conflict; there's a genuine respect shared by Frank and Calum for each other's skill set, even though both men realize that it's time for Frank bow out of the game. Frank and Calum are brutal criminals, but Mackay never robs the characters of their humanity. Agent: Grainne Fox, Fletcher & Company.

        Mackay's "Glasgow Trilogy" has received mostly raves since its first volume, The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter, appeared in the UK in 2013; that book was short-listed for the Crime Writers' Association (CWA) John Creasey New Blood Dagger Award and long-listed for the CWA Steel Dagger Book of the Year Award. The trilogy focuses on turf wars among the various criminal organizations swarming Glasgow's underworld.
