RAT RUN a totally gripping Scottish crime thriller (Detectives Anderson and Costello Mystery Book 7) (English Edition) Format Kindle
Meet your next favourite Scottish detectives: DI Colin Anderson and DS Winifred ‘Freddie’ Costello.
In August 1992, a mother and her two young sons were brutally hacked to death in the woods behind their home. The boys were just three and one.
The neighbour, Andrew Gyle, was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.
Now, twenty-three years later, a sinkhole emerges in the garden of the murdered family. In the wreckage, a grisly discovery is made. It may even throw Gyle’s conviction into doubt.
Andrew Gyle always maintained his innocence. What if he really didn’t do it?
Meanwhile, Anderson is back from his leave of absence, but Costello worries he is struggling to cope. His increasingly erratic behaviour makes her think the unthinkable: can she trust her own partner?
AN ELECTRIFYING SCOTTISH THRILLER WITH A HEART-STOPPING FINALE
Fans of Ian Rankin, Val McDermid, Denise Mina, Matt Brolly, Carol Wyer, Joy Ellis, Stuart MacBride, Angela Marsons, Helen H. Durrant, JD Kirk, DS Butler and LJ Ross will love this series.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT RAT RUN:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “The tension mounts from the very first page and I was completely hooked on it, finding myself reading long into the night because I had to know what happened.” Damaskcat
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I could almost hear the horror movie soundtrack playing in the background as my heart rate increased and my mouth went dry in terror.” Sharon
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “A wonderfully dark thriller as Anderson & Costello ride again.” Gordon
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This is a very juicy series . . . Can’t wait to see what happens next time.” Ashrae
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Another awesome performance from a fast-rising star . . . So taut, the tensions quiver on every page.” Brian
DI Colin Anderson: A well-qualified graduate with true Scottish grit. He’s calm, efficient and focused — despite his marriage falling apart, and the fact that he’s just a tiny bit in love with the boss’s wife.
DS Winifred “Freddie” Costello: Pithy, sometimes crabbit (as they say in Glasgow), Costello is incredibly capable, but not above pushing boundaries when needed. She’s a well-respected officer who always puts police work first. She’s had a crush on DCI McAlpine for many years now, but that doesn’t stop her getting the job done.
Drizzly, grey Glasgow and its seedy backstreets along with up-and-coming new estates is the setting for this gritty series. The realities of poverty and crime are laid bare — with the underfunded police department trying to keep the damn from breaking.

His first case back is a non case. Archie Walker, the fiscal and Costello's lover, wants the team to look into the brutal murder of a young mother and her two young sons. Killed by an axe, hacked to death and the family dog decapitated. A young policeman states he has seen the murder and retired from the force due to PTSD and shock.
So they are expected to go back over twenty years and no one could really see the point.
A local resident Gyle was found at the scene covered in blood, and his axe was the murder weapon. He had always stated his innocence saying that he had found his neighbour, Sue Melrose - who he loathed, already dead, but had got the blood on him trying to render any aid he could.
This was still his story, twenty years later. No one believes him.
After his conviction, his daughter Lorna had written a best seller about her father , and after accepting his guilt, ceased all contact with him.
Original witnesses are interviewed again, no change to their earlier statements.
Anderson hits it off with David Griffin, the PC at the Melrose crime scene, Costello is not happy with Anderson's new bromance, thinking it is unprofessional and inappropriate to be getting drunk with one of the witnesses . Wondering what information he maybe sharing.
After interviewing Gyle in prison, Costello begins to wonder about his guilt.
The original landowner for the street is Jock Aird, living in a large mansion nearest the woods, seventy seven and fitter than some men half his age, he has always supported Gyle's innocence. He is regarded by other residents as creepy, a perv, keeping Tom and other unflattering titles. He frequently watched his neighbours from an upstairs window. Is he a wicked old man or is he watching for any ill doing in his domain?
There is so much going on, to say more would spoil it for other readers.
If you enjoy a really good thriller with more twists and turns than Brighton Lanes, this is for you. The ending comes with a sense of disbelief, you don't see it coming, but ties all the threads together.
I`m not entirely sure that the main characters are evolving much throughout the books--they`re all so emotionally flawed it`s a wonder they can function. However this doesn`t detract from really good storylines and although the criminal perpetrator is usually fairly obvious before the end it`s how the crimes are solved that holds the interest.
