Two mysteries in one volume featuring the investigating journalist, from the Diamond Dagger Award-winning author.
When Alison Maxwell, a well-known Glaswegian journalist with an irresistible sexual attraction to both sexes, is found murdered, the police look no further than the owner of the scarf used to strangle her. Reporter Lindsay Gordon, however, suspects there’s more to the story. Maxwell was a serial seductress who kept a secret record of her encounters, including one with Lindsay herself. Recalling the threats that followed the end of the relationship, Lindsay knows all too well the feelings of rage, fear, and passion that Alison Maxwell could invoke—and she will be stepping into a sordid world of lies to solve the case.

But that will requireuncovering a seething cauldron of blackmail, corruption and abuse of power, all brought to the boil by her investigation.
