Peter Carrollabout this book: This is my first novel and it came about almost by accident! Up early one morning, the germ of an idea came to me and 3000 words later, I was off and running.
The story is a tale of dark secrets and revenge set in the seedy underbelly of Glasgow. A gangland kingpin - Danny O'Neill - savagely reprimands a young man for betraying him and then murders a high-profile policeman to protect himself.
At the same time, Davie Argyle has been biding his time, waiting for the chance to confront O'Neill over events from the past. When the two men finally connect, Davie has to try and get even without getting killed in the process.
The novel is laced with bad language and violence but it is also soaked in Scottish humour - think Quentin Tarantino and The Sopranos colliding with Irvine Welsh and Billy Connolly! With twists and turns galore, it will keep you on your mental toes right to the end.
I had a lot of fun writing this book - I love wordplay and finding humour in dark places. I hope you have a lot of fun reading it.
