Praise for Marten Claridge's other novels:
“Vibrates with tension and holds
you fast to the page throughout.”
“A terrific find-the-psychopath... Excellent Edinburgh
backdrop, some chilling deviancy scenes and an exciting, old-fashioned chase
in the Perthshire hills to end.”
THE MIDNIGHT CHILL
“A tightly woven tale of revenge... a disturbing study of remorseless
violence.” THE SUNDAY TIMES
“Chilling, but fiercely exciting."
LIVERPOOL DAILY POST
"Provocatively fresh... the dialogue is solid, the plot
effective, and the search for a psychotic killer exciting."
THE NEW YORK SUN
Set in the Scottish Borders, Marten Claridge's mean streets may
not be those of grim procedurals set in dreich innercities populated
by a relentless parade of hard-talking hardons but that doesn't
mean his quiet Border lanes don't shudder with a violence spawned
in the shadows of our worst urban nightmares. Mean streets wear
many guises but the motives for murder never change. Brother Lox
Lennox puts it another way:
"Not all our righteous paths are paved
with the bodies of those who stand in our way."
But then Lennox is no ordinary monk. Ex SAS and with a bullet
still lodged in his skull, his convoluted past is a minefield of
contradictions best avoided in the sanctuary of the cloisters.
He fought subversive wars in the Middle East the papers never got
to hear about. In the 80s he infiltrated the Scottish Revolutionary
Army and on behalf of his shadowy masters raised the spectre of
Tartan Terrorism to a whole new lethal level. But good times never
last, and when the betrayer became the betrayed he returned to
his native Borders and like many a reiver before him went into
But mad dogs don't retire, they just tread more lightly and learn
to hunt at night.
