Om Blood That Stains Your Hands
A haunting new Detective Sergeant Thomas Hutton police thriller.A young girl stands at a window in the middle of the night, looking across the street at a man with a Bible. A stained-glass Jesus in blue looks down on the lost church. A woman hangs by the neck from a bridge in the public park, angel's wings on her back. A teenage boy lies in a bath, the water turned blood red. Four church congregations have been told to unite, with unholy consequences. One by one the victims fall, as DS Hutton and DCI Taylor are drawn into the troubled and duplicitous world of the Christian Church, as its numbers fall and members fight over the scraps of diminishing power. And for Hutton, at last, it seems there may be the chance to receive absolution for past sins. Also by Douglas Lindsay featuring DS Hutton: The Unburied Dead and A Plague Of Crows"I thoroughly enjoyed Plague Of Crows. It's another superb example of Scottish crime noir. There are a number of elements to highlight. The writing is excellent. Sharp, fast paced, gripping." Crime Fiction Lover"An excellent, well written story that will appeal to readers of gritty, down to earth crime / noir" Big Al's Books And Pals"The brilliant and totally entertaining aspect of this novel is the characters, their shenanigans and their humour. Lindsay is funny and he writes about real folk like you and me who are just as confused, jealous, broken, greedy and damaged as we are." I Meant To Read That"Douglas Lindsay is a fine Scottish export that should be hailed in the same way as whisky, Rankin, haggis, tartan and those Jimmy hats that you can pick up from the Royal Mile. Super stuff." Sea Minor"I was at once cringing at the horror of the murders and then laughing from Hutton's interactions with the finer sex. It takes a talented author to pull off such a seamless switch of gears and Douglas Lindsay is just that." Just A Guy Who Likes To Read"If you like very dark and disturbing fiction, that is superbly written and beautifully addictive, then this one is definitely for you. Extremely highly recommended." Old Dogs And New TricksDouglas Lindsay is the author of 13 novels, including The Unburied Dead (DS Hutton series), We Are The Hanged Man (DCI Jericho), the surreal thriller Being For The Benefit of Mr Kite! and The Long Midnight Of Barney Thomson (the Legend of Barney Thomson series), now a major movie starring Robert Carlyle and Emma Thompson.
