Summary Excerpt Comments

When Tommy Davidson is found with his throat cut, his brother Andrew’s shock turns to thoughts of vigilante retribution. Known villains, including the person indirectly responsible for the death, begin to disappear. Thanks to the efforts of one of Cairnburgh’s cleverest lawyers, each has managed to evade justice. But not any more. Meantime, rape victim Rhona Kirk starts a new life in Dundee but finds it difficult to shake off her past. As DCI Jack Carston tries to find what links the various missing persons, he’s aware of his own darker impulses and of an empathy between himself and the vigilante. His investigation becomes a race against time and against the pressure of darkness.

‘When you read The Darkness be prepared to be manipulated and have your moral compass reset by this master storyteller. This book is clever, tightly constructed, immensely satisfying and peopled with a cast of completely believable characters, who pull you into their story and don't let you go until the final word. […] So go on, get yourself a copy of The Darkness and ask yourself this; what would you do?’
Michael Malone, Dumfries and Galloway Standard.

‘A must-read for any crime fan.’ Shona Gossip, Press and Journal, Aberdeen.

‘Bill Kirton’s The Darkness will hold you in thrall with the quality of its writing, spare unflinching scenes, and the questions the author raises. This audacious and haunting novel … deserves public attention.’
Norm Goldman, Bookpleasures.com

‘a wonderful, thrilling, dark, compassionate book.’
Gillian Philip, author of Bad Faith and Crossing the Line.
