“Cracking pace, satisfyingly twisty plot. A great read.” – James Oswald
“Falling Fast was an astonishing debut, The Storm shows it was no fluke.” – Douglas Skelton
“Definitely a must-read for all lovers of Tartan Noir.” – Undiscovered Scotland
Sequel to the Deanston Scottish Crime Book of the Year nominee launches in Edinburgh
Hailed by Sunday Times bestselling author James Oswald as “a great read [with] cracking pace and a satisfyingly twisty plot”, The Storm plunges crime reporter Doug McGregor and DS Susie Drummond into a murky world of corruption, cover-ups and decades-old secrets after Doug’s editor is brutally assassinated in front of him.
Ranging from the heart of the Capital’s rapidly changing newspaper industry to the Kingdom of Fife and the Isle of Skye, The Storm is “a gripping page turner with prose like a sniper’s bullet” that “keeps you guessing to the very end” as it addresses the state of the press and asks if the truth can ever come at too high a price.
Neil will be launching The Storm with CWA New Blood Dagger and 2011 Crime Novel of the Year nominee Craig Robertson, who is also a former journalist, at Blackwells South Bridge, Edinburgh, on 7 May 2015 from 6:30pm. (Book a Ticket)
