Publisher Review

The no-holds-barred action and dialogue smack you in the face like a Glasgow kiss. Cracking * * The Sun * * Pitch-black tartan noir, set in Seventies Glasgow . . . Compelling . . . With an emotional heart that's hard to ignore * * Daily Mail * * A riveting journey through the grim and gritty dark side of 1970s Glasgow . . . A powerful slab of tartan noir * * Herald * * [An] engaging tartan noir page turner * * Scotsman * * A riveting book, begging to be read in as few sittings as possible . . . The macabre and morally ambivalent February's Son is not one that will be quickly or easily forgotten * * The National * * A winning formula . . . All the elements of the classic crime page turner are here * * Yorkshire Post * * A terrifically muscular slice of tartan noir that cements Parks's place amongst the pantheon of great contemporary Scottish crime novelists -- Waterstones PRAISE FOR BLOODY JANUARY: An old-school cop novel written with wit and economy . . . Think McIlvanney or Get Carter -- IAN RANKIN A potent tale of death . . . Alan Parks's excellent first novel propels him into the top class of Scottish noir authors . . . Detective Harry McCoy . . . is so noir that he makes most other Scottish cops seem light grey * * The Times, Book of the Month * * 1970s Glasgow hewn from flesh and drawn in blood -- PETER MAY
