Never Somewhere Else by Alex Gray

This is the first book in the DCI Lorimer series by Alex Gray. It is a police procedural set in Glasgow.
Lorimer is on the trail of a killer who disfigures his victims in a unique way. The pace of the book is frantic and keeps you turning the pages and second guessing yourself. You think you have solved the crime only to realise you have swallowed another Red Herring. Lorimer will obviously be compared to Ian Rankin’s Rebus. But Glasgow and Edinburgh are two completely different cities and they are two different detectives. This book was written in 2002 and though it has taken me awhile to get round to it, I will be reading the rest of the series ASAP. Well done Alex. You have whetted my appetite and I look forward to more.
