They’ll all be crow bait by the time I’m finished...

Jail was hell for Davie McCall. Ten years down the line, freedom’s no picnic either. It’s 1990, there are new kings in the West of Scotland underworld, and Glasgow is awash with drugs.

Davie can handle himself. What he can’t handle is the memory of his mother’s death at the hand of his sadistic father. Or the darkness his father implanted deep in his own psyche. Or the nightmares…

Now his father is back in town and after blood, ready to waste anyone who stops him hacking out a piece of the action. There are people in his way.

And Davie is one of them.

Tense, dark and nerve-wracking... a highly effective thriller.
THE HERALD

This is crime fiction of the strongest quality.
CRIMESQUAD.COM

A gory and razor-sharp crime novel from the start, Douglas Skelton’s Crow Bait moves at breakneck speed like a getaway car on the dark streets of Glasgow.
THE SKINNY

Skelton has been hiding from his talent for long enough. High time he shared it with the rest of us.

PRAISE for Blood City

The city s dark underbelly complete with knives, razors, guns and gangs...
DAILY MAIL

You follow the plot like an eager dog, nose turning this way and that, not catching every single clue but quivering as you lunge towards a blood-splattered denouement.
DAILY EXPRESS

The Glasgow of this period is a great, gritty setting for a crime story, and Skelton s non-fiction work stands him in good stead... he s taken well to fiction... the unexpected twists keep coming.
