'A masterpiece by the woman who may be Britain's finest living crime novelist' Daily Telegraph 'Relentlessly tense and exciting' Sunday Mirror 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. 'The Long Drop is not just a success and a thrilling read in its own right, but a game-changer for the genre' Scotland on Sunday
