Leo Waterman isn't looking for trouble when he and his forensic pathologist girlfriend Rebecca escape into the Washington wilder for a few days of relaxation -- it just seems to find him. An old friend has purchased some choice property here in North America's only rain forest and his posting of "No Trespassing" signs has incurred the wrath of every sportsman for miles around. But what starts as irksome harassment by the offended locals soon escalates into the real of the lethal. And it's just Waterman's luck to be in the epicenter of this murderous mess at the very moment it bursts into flames.

As a man who has transformed a crew of residentially challenged devotees of cheap alcohol into a crack surveillance team, Leo has a soft spot for society's downtrodden. When a homeless woman says she's the mother of a deceased rock idol, Leo takes it upon himself to investigate the lady's claim, thereby embroiling ‘the Boys’ and his own already bruised body in a high-speed, life-threatening pursuit of the truth. 'Waterman is a big, bullheaded, wisecracking galoot with a mischievous sense of humour that makes him one of the most likeable characters in the genre' BOOKLIST

Anticipating disaster, a prestigious global restaurant convention hires Seattle P. I. Leo Waterman as Special Security Officer. His assignment: to monitor the movements of two adversarial steakhouse competitors whose 'beef' has previously made for some nasty confrontations, and a food critic who's caught in between the warring factions. Leo sends his band of scruffy irregulars - 'the Boys' - off to shadow all three parties and report back to him. But even the simplest of plans can cascade into catastrophe. And our unconventional detective soon finds himself served up as the prime suspect in a murder . . . realizing that both his life and career are at stake.

In the wild days of Leo Waterman's youth, Henry "Heck" Sundstrom was a god. But things haven't been going great lately for the p.i's burly ex-hero. First came the honeymoon boating accident that killed Heck's son and new daughter-in-law, Allison. And now the big man himself is dying - struck down by a runaway truck at an ungodly hour, in a section of Seattle where no decent citizen should ever be caught after dark. But Waterman's not so sure Allison went down with the ship. And if he and "the Boys" can gather the facts, perhaps he can prove it - following the lead to the Midwest and a missing million dollars . . . and hopefully to a "black widow" who may be more alive and more lethal than anyone ever suspected . . .

"Malcolm Mackay has created his own world." --The Sunday Times [UK] "A sharp-edged morality play delivered with the relentless intensity of machine gunfire."--Library Journal Oliver Peterkinney and Alex Glass, two friends from Glasgow's desperate fringes, become involved in one of the city's darkest and most dangerous trades: debt collection. While one rises quickly through the ranks, the other falls prey to the industry's addictive lifestyle, accumulating steep debts of his own. Meanwhile, the three most powerful rivals in the business--Marty Jones, ruthless pimp; Potty Cruickshank, member of the old guard; and Billy Patterson, brutal newcomer--vie for prominence. And now Peterkinney, young and darkly ambitious, is beginning to make himself known. Before long, violence will spill out onto the streets, as those at the top make deadly attempts to out-maneuver one another for a bigger share of the spoils. Peterkinney and Glass will find themselves at the very center of this war; as the pressure builds, each will find their actions--and inactions--coming back to haunt them. But it is those they love who will suffer most . . . The Night the Rich Men Burned is a novel for our times, and Mackay's most ambitious work to date, proving that in Glasgow's criminal underworld, there's nothing so terrifying as money.
