Liquidity by Rosco Low, £8.99

DUNCAN McLeod wakes one morning to find the most beautiful girl he has ever seen mysteriously lying next to him. Her eyes, though, are lifeless. As he stares at her little does he know that a murderous maelstrom of greed, tyranny and corruption has just been unleashed upon him.

Its manifestations are intoxicating, dark and deadly: an alluring police officer with a tongue like a razor blade; an enticing researcher with an explosive secret; a pair of pugnacious knights of the realm desperate to keep milking an ancient cash cow. In a devastating quest for a truth shrouded in time and new technology, who has most to lose?

This fast-paced debut from local author Rosco Low is available to order from all book shops.
