Dundee International Book Prize finalist. 'Gritty with a strong identity. Destined for crime success.’ - Dundee judges.
A tartan noir thriller by Neil Broadfoot. Action-packed from the very start, with enough twists and turns to shock and surprise even the most hard-bitten crime fan.
Story-hungry journalist Doug McGregor is out to track down a convicted rapist, on the run after being hounded out of his home by a lynch mob. But a grisly suicide in the heart of tourist Edinburgh piques Doug’s curiosity and diverts his attention – especially once his police contact and occasional drinking partner, DS Susie Drummond, reveals that the victim is connected to a high-profile politician. Together, they find themselves unravelling a story of secrets, drug abuse, violence, murder... and the ultimate taboo.
Neil Broadfoot worked as a journalist for fifteen years at both national and local newspapers, covering some of the biggest stories of the day. A poacher turned gamekeeper, he has since moved into communications: providing media relations advice for a variety of organisations, from Strathclyde Fire & Rescue Service to high profile sporting clubs in Scotland. He’s now working as a communications officer for the Scottish Government. Neil lives in Dunfermline, the setting for his first job as a local reporter. Falling Fast is his first novel.
