A Scottish special forces veteran investigates an old friend’s murder as a favour to his grieving widow—but he may go to his own grave without any answers . . .
When Adam Black attends the funeral of an old friend, Desmond Gallagher—a human rights lawyer shot dead while jogging—the widow asks for his help, and he can’t say no. She confides that her husband had been threatened by a group calling itself the Remus Syndicate, and Black is soon plunged into a complex and shadowy mystery involving money laundering, organized crime, and human trafficking. But every new discovery seems to lead to a dead end.
Along the way, Black finds mortal threats, carnage, and plenty of secrets—but will the truth about Desmond Gallagher’s demise remain forever unknown?
Another Stunning Read in this Outstanding Series!
Another fantastic read from a series which just keeps getting better and better!
When Adam Black attends the funeral of an old friend whose death is a bit of an enigma, he finds himself unable to refuse her plea to find out what happened to him. As she has confided that he was threatened by the Remus Syndicate, he sets about trying to find out everything there is about them and finds himself deep in an intricate mystery which will take some unravelling. But if anyone can, then that man is Adam Black.
I admit to panicking when I spotted the title of this latest novel in series – surely it didn’t mean the end? I was very relieved to find out that it was just the title – not the actual finale! From the very first I have loved this series; it’s not just that I recognise the locations – it’s the quality of the writing and the unpredictability of the story. Make no doubt about it, Adam Black is a dangerous man and, whilst this is an excellent stand-alone read, I would advise readers this is one series of novels you really do want to start at the beginning; it will help you understand what makes the man tick. A stunning addition to this terrific series, and an easy five sparkling stars from me!
I downloaded this ebook via Kindle Unlimited; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

Karl Hill lives in sunny Scotland, in the village of Eaglesham, on the outskirts of Glasgow. For his sins, he is a practicing lawyer, and has been for over twenty-five years. He tries to keep fit, by going to the gym every three years or so. Or is it four? He lives with his wife and daughter, and two remarkably ugly cats, both suffering personality disorders. The cats, that is. When he’s not experiencing the joys of looking through title deeds, he loves to read a good thriller. And, of course, he loves to write.
