Book Description

Dec 4 2008 Dci Lorimer (Book 5)
When Chief Inspector Lorimer returns from his holiday on the island of Mull, he feels a welcome sense of calm. But it doesn't last long. Kelvin FC's new star midfielder is found brutally stabbed to death in his own home and, with his wife apprehended trying to leave the country, a seemingly straightforward new case begins. But the grisly murder of a referee after a Kelvin match throws light on some dark secrets at the ground. And when the latest signing to the club becomes the latest victim in a string of killings, Lorimer knows there's a serial killer on the loose - one that's only beginning to show his true colours. As lies emerge and tensions build, the players and managers live under the constant threat of becoming the next Kelvin fatality.

Building to a dark and suspenseful climax, Pitch Black is Alex Gray's most powerful work to date.

Product Description

Review

"Gray more than holds her own against the likes of Rankin and McDermid . . . it would take a reader with the skills of her hero to come up with the killer's identity before the last few pages."  —Express

5.0 out of 5 stars Real,ejoyable relaxing mystery reading so well writen. July 20 2014

When I was growing up being able to read a mystery by Agatha Cristie was an accomplishment for a young lad of my age (8yrs).
The mystery part was always exciting and cleverly done and one felt a feeling satisfaction at being as a reader part of the tale.
Alex Gray's characters with Inspector Lorimer , his wife and members of his staff as they go about unraveling the crime of each story go far beyond Christie in that feeling. I have most enjoyed all of the books of hers I have read.
All set in rural Scotland with people we foreigners can easily relate to. No social axes to grind, or biases to flaunt just great stories well told and enjoyed. I encourage her to be read.
