The blurb for Vile City
I'm working on the final edit now and trying to figure out where to send it. But, here's the blurb (here's hoping you'll see something similar on the back of a book soon) -
is a tale of criminal skulduggery, set in a city Waddell once loved, but is fast growing to despise because of all the darkness he sees. Vile City
The women of
have real reason to be afraid. A man dubbed ‘the Glasgow Grabber’ is on the loose and they are his prey. Glasgow
DI Waddell is the detective called in to save the day. But, he has problems of his own.
The paperwork on his desk is piling up faster than the knickers at a porn shoot, he’s a borderline diabetic addicted to Irn Bru, and to top it all, he’s been lumbered with a Hen Broon look-alike with glasses because his finest detective and friend Stevie is languishing in a psychiatric hospital. And don’t even get him started on his pompous, ex-Army boss and the pain in the bahookie hack who comes round every time she smells the scent of human suffering.
The last thing Waddell needs is the country’s biggest case to land on his lap.
Driven by the belief that third victim, the plucky Shelley Craig is still alive Waddell is in a desperate race against time to uncover the truth behind the abductions and to save her. To do that, he and his team must delve into the seedy underbelly of
’s swingers’ scene and a sick world where women are tricked into the sex trade and traded like cattle. Scotland
Along the way Waddell will discover one thing is true: the female of the species is more deadly than the male.
