A lifetime of friendship lost by murder and betrayal
As boys Ray Ford and Joe Turner were at opposite ends of the social spectrum; but were loyal friends nevertheless. Ray was forever defending the more outrageous Joe from the seemingly never ending scrapes he got himself into. But thirty years on Ray; now a successful Glasgow lawyer, and called upon to defend Joe once again for the most heinous crime of all : realises he has to turn his back on their boyhood bond… and betray his friend.
Especially once he discovers that Joe has killed again… and again.
Newly promoted DI Susan Dornan is determined to clear up her first case quickly, but realises she needs the help of the man she has replaced; veteran murder detective Matt Healy. Healy is also determined to bring Joe Turner to justice but, blinded by love and jealousy, he allows his focus to become blurred…..with tragic consequences for the case, and his own life.......
.........but if it is true that love conquers all; then maybe there is a solution to all their desires.
A gripping page turner that accelerates rapidly through a murky soup of love, death, deceit and betrayal culminating in a dénouement that shocks everyone involved in… Defending Joe.
