Death Trap

By Anna Smith

Published Apr 2017


Crime reporter Rosie Gilmour faces her biggest challenge yet when sadistic killer Thomas Boag escapes police custody minutes after his first court appearance.  The police manhunt puts Glasgow in lockdown.  It was Rosie’s exclusive story that brought about Boag’s arrest, and she was in court to see him being led to the cells, hoping he would be behind bars for life.  Now he’s on the loose, and looking for revenge.

On the same day in court, a chance encounter with a young, ill-treated Kosovan refugee leads Rosie into the brutal world of modern slavery, happening right on her doorstep in Glasgow.

The deeper Rosie digs, the more grisly secrets are uncovered – while the spectre of the killer still at large hangs over her.
