The new CRIME novel from the #1 Sunday Times bestselling author

Summary

From #1 Sunday Times bestseller Irvine Welsh, the brand new novel in the CRIME series featuring former detective Ray Lennox

"The truth is what we say the truth is . . ."

Former detective Ray Lennox is determined to start a new life. He has left Edinburgh Police behind for a fresh career and a fresh relationship in Brighton.

Then he meets Mathew Cardingworth. Rich, smooth-talking and immaculately dressed, he is seemingly a pillar of the local community - yet he soon draws Lennox back to a past that he's desperate to forget.

As Lennox identifies the links between Cardingworth, a series of violent attacks and the disappearances of a group of foster care boys, he is forced to ask himself: what must he sacrifice to expose the truth?
