Deadly Divisions by Reg McKay

Book Description

Glasgow, 1989. James Addison, aka Addie, has been a very busy man. Wanted for every type of crime for over a decade, there is only one hitch - he has never been seen, let alone caught. So, who or what is Addie? Does he even exist? When a small-time moneylender pimp is shot down on a Glasgow street, it seems to be just another gangland murder. But not for Andy Grimes, overseer of much of the city's prostitution, drug dealing and protection rackets - and the dead man's brother. When word leaks out that Addie is the killer, Grimes calls in his police allies and musters his troops. On the case is DCI Alex Birse, and old-time cop, as crooked as he is vicious. He has been after Addie for years and never got close. As the streets of Glasgow heave with police and gangsters, over in Berlin the Wall is coming down. At this time of great change, opportunity and uncertainty, the two cities are linked by loot - Bearer Bonds to be precise. Back in Glasgow, while pulling a scam on an old Jewish couple, one of Grimes' men, Angie the Gopher, finds a biscuit tin full of Bearer Bonds issued in Germany before the Second World War. Angie smells money - the bonds could be worth millions - and he scuttles back to tell his boss. Now the chase is on. Who gets the bonds? How much are they worth? Who perishes along the way? For the answers you'll have to rely on Addie. But can they catch him? The last line will reveal all ...maybe.

Books By Author Reg McKay

Villains by Reg McKay Villains, Paperback (June 2010)

Murder, gunrunning, drug trafficking, kneecappings - Paul Ferris has been accused of many things in his life, some true, some not. What's not in dispute is that he spent twenty-five years as one of Britain's most feared gangsters. Out of prison, Paul still hasn't forgotten the common thugs and big-time players that surrounded him.

Vendetta by Reg McKay Vendetta, Paperback (August 2009)

Covering the story of the author's life of crime, this title slashes open the underbelly of Britain's streets and exposes the dark forces that police them as well as revealing the truth about the conspiracies and corruption that won't leave him alone.

Murder Capital by Reg McKay Murder Capital, Paperback (June 2006)

A warm welcome or a blade in the guts - it's the contradiction that makes Glasgow unique. This work offers up forty modern murder cases. This collection of tales graphically explores how the city has earned its unenviable title of Murder Capital of Europe. It highlights some of the most sickening murders to be committed in the world.

Last Godfather by Reg McKay Last Godfather, Paperback (April 2006)

No-one could rule bloody Glasgow, they said. Arthur Thompson proved them all wrong. From a normal working class family, Thompson started out as a bouncer, minder and bagman. Hard, bright, he learned young. Cross him - you were scarred. Cheat him - he nailed you to the floor. The gangsters of Glasgow thought it couldn't get worse. It did.
