About the Book

'An outstanding mystery thriller… Noir fans won’t want to miss it' - Publishers Weekly (Starred)

'A riveting, brutal journey into the high stakes world of legacy art and inherited wealth' - Denise Mina, author of the Garnethill trilogy and The Long Drop

The Goldenacre – a masterpiece by the painter and architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh – has been given to the people of Scotland. The beautiful canvas, the last work by the artistic genius, enthrals the art world, but behind it lies a dark and violent mystery.

Thomas Tallis, an art expert with a trouble past, is trying to uncover the truth about the painting's complex history, while dogged newspaper reporter Shona Sandison is investigating a series of shocking murders in Edinburgh.

Both investigators soon become engulfed in the machinations of money, crime and identity in a literary thriller set amid the seen and unseen forces at work in modern Scotland.
