    A sure-fire hit with fans of Ian Rankin, Alex Gray's DCI Lorimer thrillers are set in Glasgow and delve deep into the dark and ugly underground of this famous city as the detective has to tackle a series of grisly crimes. In this collection, we've hand-picked three of the most chilling, gritty and captivating reads from the series.

    Never Somewhere Else is the first novel in the series and it finds DCI Lorimer investigating the killings of three young women in a park.

But this dream turns to horror when Eva is found dead and their male flatmate is accused of murder. But Kirsty refuses to believe he is guilty. However, a woman with a remarkable similarity is also found brutally murdered and this leads Lorimer from the gritty heart of Glasgow right into the snow-covered streets of Stockholm.

    Finally, there's The Bird that Did Not Sing, a novel about a threat that could not only ruin the Commonwealth Games but destroy the city...

    The House at Riverton is both a thrilling mystery and a tender love story. Influenced by the likes of Atonement and Gosford Park, it finds events in the summer of 1924 and the winter of 1999 intertwining in almost unbelievable ways. In the middle of 1920s, a young port takes his life on the eve of a glittering society party. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again after this night. At the end of the 20th century, 98-year-old Grace Bradley, once a housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide and this opens all sorts of old wounds - including a terrible and shocking secret.
