Chris Brookmyre was a journalist before becoming a full-time novelist with the publication of his award-winning debut Quite Ugly One Morning, which established him as one of Britain's leading crime authors. His Jack Parlabane novels have sold more than one million copies in the UK alone, and Black Widow won both the McIlvanney Prize and the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year award.
Is the devil merely the name we give the worst in ourselves? Or is there an evil in this world older than society, a force that corrupts men and feeds off their sins?
This is not a question that has ever much concerned private investigator Jasmine Sharp, but that
changes when she is hired to find Tessa Garrion, a young woman who turns out to be not merely long lost, but vanished without trace. It becomes increasingly clear that there are some who want her to stay that way.
What begins as a simple search awakens a malevolence that has lain dormant for three decades, placing Jasmine in the crosshairs of those who'll stop at nothing to keep their secrets buried. As she uncovers a hidden history of sex, drugs, ritualism and murder, which links the well-appointed salons of Glasgow's high society to the lowest depths of the underworld, Jasmine realises she may need a little help from the dark side herself if she's going to get to the truth.
