The trail leads him to a vicious world of brutal gangsters, merciless hitmen, dark family secrets and an insatiable lust for power in the highest echelons of politics.

Travel Guide

Welcome to Glasgow

This is the witty, gritty down and dirty Glasgow with an extra sprinkling of gallows humour and some dark dark violent murders. There’s black shadows lurking everywhere and even blacker humour.

The Glasgow underworld does not like being messed with and doesn’t like people interfering. Certainly not people who want answers about missing girls.

Queste is on  a mission to find the truth. If he continues to meet and talk to people in bars then he may well find more than the truth. Visit the aptly named nicensleazy.com which could be a good place to read the book!


My only hazy recollection of one holiday to Saltcoats was of walking to the harbour at night with my father and mu sister. “

“Also for some reason that stroll down memory lane to Saltcoats harbour is sound -tracked by the song Michael Row the Boat Ashore”


“That’s what I like about my country of birth. ‘Service with a sigh’. Visit Scotland must love this place.”
