Über diesen Titel
In later years, Ray Sussock would look upon the case as being perhaps the most satisfying of his career. He began with the case and he was there at the conclusion twenty-five years later. It would, though, be many months, if not years, before the sense of satisfaction, the sense of neatly rounding off, would settle in. At the time he found it harrowing, especially when the realization came. When the realization came he had woken up. Screaming.
So begins the account of one of the darkest and most peculiar cases to present itself to the officers of the esteemed P Division in Glasgow, Scotland. It opens quietly enough, with the routine investigation of a stolen vehicle that has been abandoned deep in rural Lanarkshire. When disturbed topsoil indicates that something far more sinister has also been abandoned, it reminds Sergeant Sussock of a similar incident some twenty-five years earlier - and to the horror of the investigators, the fields of Lanarkshire begin to give up their dead.
Forensic evidence indicates that the victims unearthed had all endured a period of captivity before being murdered, so when a separate inquiry into the sudden disappearance of a young boy becomes linked to the murder investigation, the police realize that a serial killer is at work - and that they are racing against time.
The urban wastelands of industrial Glasgow, Scotland's largest city, are bared mercilessly once again in this latest potent procedural from the author of Fair Friday and Two Way Cut . Turnbull's compelling vision rivals the narrative firepower of John Harvey ( Rough Treatment ) and fellow Glaswegian William McIllvanney ( Strange Loyalties ). Twenty-five years separate the discoveries of two abandoned cars; each was carefully parked and a stuffed toy rabbit was found close by. The first came at the start of copper Ray Sussock's career, the second close to its end, when Sussock is punching the clock, waiting out his time on the force and rebounding from a painful divorce. But unbeknownst to Sussock, the two cars stand close to shallow graves, marking brutal child murders that represent only two of a serial killer's many crimes. In a brief tale suffused with suffering, Turnbull depicts the timid and battered wife of an eyewitness, the distraught mother of a missing boy, a starving child waiting for death and two prostitutes battling booze and heroin. While none of the police of Glasgow's P Division is a saint in the city, they are indelibly touched by the emotional and physical harshness of the terrain they traverse day by day. An outstanding series.
