"A Pound of Flesh" by Alex Gray is a book that is full of suspense from the very first page and is a very compelling book. Prostitutes and businessmen are being killed in Glasgow and it is up to Detective Inspector Lorimer to find out who is doing the killing. Where does he start? Are these two connected? Then one of the victims is a well known person so there is a big push to find out who is doing this. Others try to help but how do you stop murders when you think there is a person in the police department who is not working with you. Detective Inspector Lorimer has to find both of these killers before someone else ends up dead. Will he be in time to save others? I was given this book for a review by Partners in Crime Virtual Book Tours Tours. I give this book a 5/5. These are all my opinions.
