When people in the city want to borrow money, they go to Cooper. When they don’t pay it back, they get a visit from Joe Hope.
But now Joe’s got problems of his own. His teenage daughter is found dead, an apparent suicide. Then the police arrest him for murder. But for once in his life, Joe’s innocent – and with help from his underworld associates, he sets out to find the person responsible for framing him and deliver his own brutal form of justice.
A powerful urban crime story set on the mean streets of Edinburgh, Kiss Her Goodbye marks Allan Guthrie’s emergence as a major new voice in thriller writing.
