Revenge is a dish best served … sliced.
The new cold meat option in the sandwich shop isn’t chicken, and it isn’t pork. It’s Kevin Moyes, missing for two weeks, now presumed dead.
The Serious Crime Unit are notified, and the hunt for the macabre butcher takes detectives Aliya Pereira and Marc Bain to the meat-processing factory where the human flesh entered the food chain. They are followed by a media frenzy, with Pereira’s boss demanding immediate results. But while the factory is clean and no one is talking, some of the players have gone missing, people are still dying, and the butcher’s work is not yet done.
COLD CUTS introduces DI Pereira and DS Bain, Glasgow detectives on the trail of a killer through a sordid underworld of deceit, vengeance and murder.
Tartan Noir never tasted so delicious.
