But three years is a long time on newspapers and things have changed - readers are dwindling, budgets are tightening, and the Tribs once rigorous standards are slipping. Once the papers star reporter, Conway now plays second fiddle to his former prot�g�, crime reporter Martin Moir.But when Moir goes AWOL as a big story breaks, Conway is dispatched to cover a gangland shooting. And when Moirs body turns up in a flooded quarry, Conway is drawn deeper into the citys criminal underworld as he looks for the truth about his colleagues death. Braving the hostility of gangsters, ambitious politicians and his own newspaper bosses, Conway discovers he still has what it takes to break a big story. But this is a story not everyone wants to hear as the city prepares to host the Commonwealth Games and the country gears up for a make-or-break referendum on independence.In this, the second book in the Conway Trilogy, McIlvanney explores the murky interface of crime and politics in the new Scotland.
