The "trial of the century" in 1950's Glasgow is over. Peter Manuel has been found guilty of a string of murders and is waiting to die by hanging. But every good crime story has a beginning. Manuel's starts with the murder of William Watt's family. Looking no further that Watt himself, the police are convinced he's guilty. Desperate to clear his name, Watt turns to Manuel, a career criminal who claims to have information that will finger the real killer. As Watt seeks justice with Manuel's help, everyone the pair meets has blood on their hands as they sell their version of the truth. Based on true events, The Long Drop is an explosive novel about guilt, innocence and the power of a good story to hide the difference.
