Paddy Meehan is a proper journalist but still she is on the night time drive around, responding to the police radio, chasing calls for a story. Then she visits a house in Bearsden where a domestic has been called in. A woman with a bruised face turns the police away and the man at the door offers Paddy £50 to turn a blind eye. She takes it. Then the woman turns up dead. Feeling responsible and guilty, Paddy investigates the crime and tries to avoid being found out for taking the bribe. This is an excellent 2nd book in this trilogy and sets up well for the third. Gripping, realistic crime, devoid of cliches and shock value.
