He is investigating a series of murders that seem at first to be the result of random bouts of violence among Glasgow’s poor and destitute. McCormack, however, has insight into Glasgow’s underground that many of his colleagues don’t. He has a secret of his own that he guards carefully but that takes him places and introduceshim to people that prove essential to his investigations.

Mcilvanney’sThe Quaker was named the Scottish Crime Fiction Book of the Year and a  Washington PostBest Book of the Year.The Guardian called it “a solidly crafted and satisfying detective story.” McIlvanney is known for his well crafted plots, his deep characterization, and his stylish prose. The Heretic is no exception.
