"A high-octane read." - Maxim Jakubowski

Meet Jen. She works in a bookshop and likes the odd glass of Prosecco... oh, and she's about to be branded The Most Dangerous Woman in Scotland.

Jen Carter is a failed writer with a rubbish boyfriend, Ed. That is, until she accidentally kills him one night. Now that Ed's dead, she has to decide what to do with his body, his drugs and a big pile of cash. And, more pressingly, how to escape the hitman who's been sent to recover Ed's stash. Soon Jen's on the run from criminals, corrupt police officers and the prying eyes of the media. Who can she trust? And how can she convince them that the trail of corpses left in her wake are just accidental deaths?

A modern noir that proves, once and for all, the female of the species really is more deadly than the male.

"Funny and fierce, and a heroine worth rooting for..." Brooke Magnanti

"McLean has created an appealing protagonist, with a strong and consistent voice... It seems strange to say that a novel with so many bloody fatalities can be fun, but this one is!" Crime Fiction Lover

"One of Scotland's most skilled noiristas… a book which will appeal to booksellers everywhere, especially homicidal ones." Mike Ripley, Shots magazine

"This book is fantastic! Fast paced and at times just utter nuts… A beautiful masterpiece of modern Scottish Noir that leaves you unsure about whether you should laugh or cry." Amanda Gillies, Eurocrime

"We're not sure when we last enjoyed a book quite this much… The sheer pace of the story carries you along breathlessly … Hugely entertaining." Undiscovered Scotland
