Description:
William Watt wants answers about his family's murder. Peter Manuel has them. But Peter Manuel is a liar. William Watt is an ordinary businessman, a fool, a social climber. Peter Manuel is a famous liar, a rapist, a criminal. He claims he can get hold of the gun used to murder Watt's family. One December night in 1957, Watt meets Manuel in a Glasgow bar to find out what he knows. Based on true events, 'The Long Drop' is an extraordinarily unsettling, evocative and compelling novel from a writer at the height of her powers.

Not up to Denise Mina's normal high standard. Disappointing.
