Desert Star by Michael Connelly

“Malcolm Mackay has created
his own world.” –The Sunday Times [UK]

“A
sharp-edged morality play delivered with the relentless intensity of machine
gunfire.”–Library Journal

Oliver Peterkinney and
Alex Glass, two friends from Glasgow’s desperate fringes, become involved in
one of the city’s darkest and most dangerous trades: debt collection. While
one rises quickly through the ranks, the other falls prey to the industry’s
addictive lifestyle, accumulating steep debts of his own.
Meanwhile, the three most powerful rivals in the business–Marty Jones,
ruthless pimp; Potty Cruickshank, member of the old guard; and Billy
Patterson, brutal newcomer–vie for prominence. And now Peterkinney, young
and darkly ambitious, is beginning to make himself known.
Before
long, violence will spill out onto the streets, as those at the top make
deadly attempts to out-maneuver one another for a bigger share of the spoils.
Peterkinney and Glass will find themselves at the very center of this war; as
the pressure builds, each will find their actions–and inactions–coming back
to haunt them. But it is those they love who will suffer most . . .

The Night the Rich Men Burned is a novel for our times, and
Mackay’s most ambitious work to date, proving that in Glasgow’s criminal
underworld, there’s nothing so terrifying as money.
