Dark Water by Caro Ramsay is the third in the Anderson and Costello series.
They call him Mr Click . . .
A bitterly cold February in Glasgow. Hanging from a rope in the attic of a deserted tenement is the body of a criminal believed hiding out on the Costa del Sol these last ten years. His face has been hideously disfigured.
Investigating officers DI Anderson and DS Costello believe the dead man to be a suspect in a decade-old case: the rape and attempted murder of a young student. And there are other, similar cases on file.
But what has happened to the dead man's accomplice, 'Mr Click'?
Then with the discovery of another young woman who was brutally attacked, detectives Anderson and Costello realise that this terrifying psychopath has started working once more. They must use every trick in the book to stop him.
For Mr Click has developed a taste for killing. And to satisfy his lust he will kill again and again . . .
Reissued with a stunning new package, Caro Ramsay's Anderson & Costello thrillers have been widely recognised as one of the most significant new series in the genre in recent years and Ramsay's utterly unique investigators are ready to become the nation's favourite Scottish cop duo. Absolution is the amazing opening to this stunning series. Subsequent titles include Dark Water and Singing to the Dead. Fans of Ian Rankin and Val McDermid will love this series.
