The Hanging Shed by Gordon Ferris

The Hanging Shed by Gordon Ferris
Glasgow, 1946. The last time Douglas Brodie came home it was 1942 and he
was a dashing young warrior in a kilt. Now, the war is over but victory’s
wine has soured and Brodie’s back in Scotland to try and save childhood
friend Hugh Donovan from the gallows. Everyone thought Hugh was dead, shot
down in the war. Perhaps it would have been kinder if he had been killed. The
man who returns from the war is unrecognizable: mutilated, horribly burned.
Hugh keeps his own company, only venturing out for heroin to deaden the pain
of his wounds. When a local boy is found raped and murdered, there is only
one suspect. Hugh claims he’s innocent but a mountain of evidence says
otherwise. Despite the hideousness of the crime, ex-policeman Brodie feels
compelled to try and help his one-time friend. Working with advocate Samantha
Campbell, Brodie trawls the mean streets of the Gorbals and the green hills
of western Scotland in their search for the truth. What they find is an unholy
alliance of troublesome priests, corrupt coppers and Glasgow’s deadliest
razor gang, happy to slaughter to protect their dark and dirty secrets. As
time runs out for the condemned man, the murder tally of innocents starts to
climb. When Sam Campbell disappears, it’s the last straw for Brodie, and he
reverts to his wartime role as a trained killer. It’s them or him…
