The first in a new series of crime novels from debut author Alan Parks, the next dark and exciting voice in Scottish noir.
‘An old-school cop novel written with wit and economy ... Think McIlvanney or Get Carter.' - Ian Rankin
When a teenage boy shoots a young woman dead in the middle of a busy Glasgow street and then commits suicide, Detective Harry McCoy is sure of one thing. It wasn't a random act of violence.
With his new partner in tow, McCoy uses his underworld network to lead the investigation but soon runs up against a secret society led by Glasgow's wealthiest family, the Dunlops.
McCoy's boss doesn't want him to investigate. The Dunlops seem untouchable. But McCoy has other ideas ...
In a helter-skelter tale - winding from moneyed elite to hipster music groupies to the brutal gangs of the urban wasteland - Bloody January brings to life the dark underbelly of 1970s Glasgow and establishes Alan Parks as a new and exciting voice in Scottish noir.
Alan Parks has worked in the music industry for over twenty years. He lives and works in Glasgow.
