When the dead body of a man is fished out of Glasgow's River Clyde the morning after an office celebration, it looks like a case of accidental death. An anonymous telephone call and a forensic toxicology test, however, give DCI Lorimer reason to think otherwise.
Probing deeper into the life and business of the deceased accountant, Duncan Forbes, a seemingly upright member of the community, Lorimer find only yet more unanswered questions.
And when the firm's human resources manager is found dead in her riverside flat these questions become only more complex -- not to mention more disturbing. And Lorimer is having to cope not only with deceptions devised to hide the facts, but also with suspicions from those far closer to home . . .
Alex Gray is the Sunday Times bestselling author of the Detective William Lorimer series. Born and raised in Glasgow, she has been awarded the Scottish Association of Writers' Constable and Pitlochry trophies for her crime writing and is the co-founder of the international Bloody Scotland Crime Writing Festival.

Alex Gray likes to get her murders into the first chapter and to achieve this in this book she was forced to then add in a really annoying flash back; it would have been much better to let the murder occur naturally after a few chapters. Another issue is the development of some of the characters, specifically Maggie, Lorimer's wife; (I'm sure that Alex Gray wasn't trying to make her irritating but I found myself wanting to give her a slap), and Solomon the profiler who seems to just sit about 'twinkling' his eyes while at the same time being inscrutable.
Finally the plot was OK but the police entirely failed to solve the case. It relied on two very unlikely events for them to uncover the plot and how one of these is linked and notified to the murder investigation is not satisfactorily explained.
Given the books that had gone before I was seriously let down by this; it won't stop me continuing to read the following books, but to keep me interested the next one needs to be up to the level of the earlier ones.
