Drown For Your Sins
By Diarmid MacArthur
The discovery of the naked and mutilated body of a young man in a Scottish loch sends shockwaves through the local community.
THE BROKEN MAN
When DCI Grant McVicar is tasked with finding the killer, it’s not the obvious choice. Tragedy has thrown him into turmoil, and he is a troubled man.
What starts out as a fairly straightforward investigation soon turns nasty, leading McVicar and his team into the dark world of a notorious Glasgow crime family. McVicar has encountered them before and his need for vengeance is at war with his need to bring them to justice. He’s determined to uncover the truth, but the force of his hatred starts to cloud his judgement, and those around him begin to question his fitness for duty.

When not engaged in his business or writing his novels, Diarmid is also a musician, a poet and a rower. He lives with his wife and his two teenage daughters just outside the attractive little RenfewRenfrewshire village of Lochwinnoch.
