Keep the Midnight Out

by Alex Gray

Tour May 7 – June 8, 2018

Keep the Midnight by Alex GrayWhen the body of a red-haired young man is washed up on the shore of the beautiful Isle of Mull, Detective Superintendent Lorimer’s tranquil holiday away from the gritty streets of Glasgow is rudely interrupted. The body has been bound with twine in a ghoulishly unnatural position and strongly reminds Lorimer of another murder: a twenty year old Glasgow case that he failed to solve as a newly fledged detective constable and which has haunted him ever since.

As local cop DI Stevie Crozier takes charge of the island murder investigation, Lorimer tries to avoid stepping on her toes. But as the similarities between the young man’s death and his cold case grow more obvious, Lorimer realises that there could be a serial killer on the loose after all these years.

As the action switches dramatically between the Mull murder and the Glasgow cold case twenty years earlier, Lorimer tries desperately to catch a cold-hearted killer. Has someone got away with murder for decades?

 Once again, Alex Gray has written an engaging, well-plotted and well-paced DCI Lorimer mystery. This one moves back and forth in time, from a murder of a red-haired boy twenty years ago until the present (and another murder of another red-haired boy). The past holds also the story of Maggie’s pregnancy, all the more poignant as regular readers know what will transpire. This is #12 in the series, but you can read any of these novels as a stand alone. Thank you for making me part of the tour and for my e-copy. I love this Scottish series!
