As detective Max Wolfe recovers from the injuries sustained in The Murder Bag, a figure from his past comes back into his life: his childhood sweetheart, now stalked and threatened by her violent ex-partner.

As Max attempts to protect her, he is haunted by a nightmare of his own: the reappearance of the terrorist he killed with his car at the start of The Murder Bag.

What really happened to Audrey Nealon's mother? Did she die in a tragic accident? Or did she abandon her husband and young daughter? And why is Audrey's father so cold and distant?

As the successful owner of an estate sale business, Audrey has put the past behind her. Her mother is a distant memory, her father a problem she keeps closed away.

Until the day Audrey clears out the home of a lonely old widow and finds some shocks.

Relentlessly, Audrey pursues clues to her family's troubled history. Because the truth will set her free...unless it gets her killed.

But the case turns out to be more complicated than expected, as they begin to investigate the numerous people Stevenson has harmed. When they stumble upon a web of crimes motivated by sex and greed, it begins to look like there's much more to the case than they anticipated.

With the body count rising and clues few and far between, can Alex Warren and his team close the case before more lives are lost?

First book in the Scottish crime series by Zach Abrams, Made A Killing is a fast-moving, gripping tartan noir mystery set in the tough, crime-ridden streets of Glasgow.

What readers are saying about Made A Killing:

- Tight cast of interesting characters

- Mr. Abrams does a great job of bringing the gritty streets of Glasgow to life

- I found it so hard to stop reading that I missed my regular Tuesday TV show

- This book is an intriguing escape. It was dark but not too dark. As a reader, I enjoyed every twist and turn. The setting is made authentic not only by the author's Glasgow upbringing but his ability to visualize the grey, gloomy Scottish November that is a perfect setting for this whodunit

- The characters were great. The reason for the murder was believable. I can see it happening in real life
