Fans of atmospheric police procedurals will love watching Glasgow vividly come to life with the shocking twists and turns that have made Alex Gray an international bestseller
When a dead body is fished out of Glasgow’s River Clyde the morning after an office celebration, it looks like a case of accidental death. But an anonymous telephone call and a forensic toxicology test give Detective Chief Inspector William Lorimer reason to think otherwise. Probing deeper into the life and business of the deceased accountant, a seemingly upright member of the community, Lorimer finds only more unanswered questions.
What is the secret his widow seems to be concealing? Was the international accounting firm facing financial difficulties? What has become of the dead man’s protégé who has disappeared in New York? And when another employee is found dead in her riverside flat these questions become much more disturbing. Lorimer must cope not only with deceptions from the firm, but also with suspicions from those far closer to home . . .
 The Riverman by Alex Gray (A DCI LorimerNovel)
Glasgow’s River Clyde gives up a dead body, a probable accidental death, but for DCI William Lorimer, that probability is tossed out the window when forensics and an anonymous call point to something far more sinister.

The victim was an accountant, his company a powerful international firm. Was the company in financial trouble? Is that why this man was found floating in the cold river? What secrets will Lorimer uncover? How many deaths, lies and secrets will be uncovered that are related to this global firm?

Follow the trail of deceit, greed and personal agendas as the bodies begin to pile up while the answers remain allusive. Someone knows what is going on and they are not talking, could it be the last person anyone would expect?

Twisted, dark and filled with edgy and taut suspense, Alex Gray’s THE RIVERMAN is a suspense reader’s delight as it slowly heats to a boil and spirals to its amazing conclusion.
