Présentation de l'éditeur

Murder and drug-dealing are all in a day’s work for DCI Charlie Anderson, but everything’s on a different scale now that psychopath Billy McAteer is back on the streets of Glasgow. Simon Ramsay, a successful and seemingly respectable businessman, receives an email with a photograph attached. If he doesn’t come up with £50k, the sender will release it to the press, and Ramsay’s career will be over. In a state of panic he contacts his mistress, Laura. He tells her a blackmailer has managed to get his hands on a compromising photo of them in bed together. Terrified of what her violent husband will do if he finds out about her affair, Laura enlists the services of McAteer to deal with the blackmailer. It is a moment of madness, with disastrous consequences. And it falls to DCI Anderson and his sidekick to unravel the trail of death and destruction.

'Daly effortlessly incorporates the seedy underbelly of the city… Black Mail can proudly sit alongside books by far more established writers in the Glasgow noir field… A highly enjoyable debut' - crimefictionlover.co.uk (*****FIVE-STAR REVIEW*****)

'Impressive ... a vivid new voice in Tartan noir' - MAGGIE CRAIG

'Everything you would want in a crime novel -- a gritty gutsy Glasgow as the setting, realistic coppers, dodgy businessmen, out and out villains and enough twists and turns to tie you up and hang you over a precipice of suspense. Bring on the next in the series!' - lovereading.co.uk

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great read! 21 février 2013

Found this in Le Bookshop in Montpellier and as it was by a local author thought I'd give it a try. Great decision, great holiday reading! Well constructed and plotted, murder and mayhem with a cast of three dimensional characters with a deftly described backdrop of a sectarian Glasgow that I was unaware of. Anderson, the instinctive old-fashioned DCI is one of the more memorable fictional detectives (at last a cop with a functional home life!) and the prey he's stalking a frighteningly violent psychopath. I'm not sure this will be used by the Glasgow tourist board for publicity purposes as the city Daly describes is bleak and foreboding but the attention to detail certainly brings the place to life. I will be on the look out for the sequel...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un-put-downable! 5 juillet 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Happened on this little gem, purely by accident. So glad I did! Well written, with well-constructed plots and sub-plots, all with a liberal sprinkling of authentic and sometimes grim Glasgow humour. As a Glaswegian, living in the south of France, I was enchanted with the characterisations - in fact I felt as if I recognised some of the characters. Written by someone who knows the 'real' Glasgow
Hope the next one in the series will be along soon!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A stark, gritty page turner 5 mai 2014
Par J. Harper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Christmas in Glasgow and a minor police operation quickly escalates. Meanwhile, across town, a family prepares for a birthday bash and we are unexpectedly sucked into a world complicated by drug use, shady dealings, power play, illicit affairs - and blackmail.

Bill Daly's debut crime novel had me turning pages feverishly. The twists and turns were intricate, the cast of characters had me gripped despite (or maybe because of?) their many flaws.

This is Glasgow at its darkest and starkest. Drug dealing, violence and sectarianism stalk through the pages as the menace ramps up and the stakes get higher. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of the likeable DCI Charlie Anderson...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Welcome to a new tartan noir voice 5 novembre 2012
Par W. J. S. Kirton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In this, the first of I hope many DCI Charlie Anderson mysteries, Bill Daly introduces us to a new copper who's a family man, nearly ready to retire, but who brings to his interviewing techniques and investigative methods a deviousness well beyond even that of the various criminals he's pursuing. When he wants information he knows exactly how to get it, subtly using the criminals' fears to torment them into giving him the names and places he needs. The many plot layers, all interconnected, unfold at a terrific pace, with new revelations and twists at every juncture. The staple crime diet of drugs, deceit, sex, blackmail, abuse, extreme violence and murder is handled with panache and, despite the extremes he's describing, a humour typical of the Glasgow he evokes with total authenticity. Even its sectarian divide is harnessed to fuel some of the narrative developments.

Daly starts with a stake-out of some typical low-lifes, moves quickly to an apparently moneyed, middle class dinner party, where tensions simmer, some secrets are revealed and others skulk unseen, and then begins to weave these strands so that the one is tangled in the other. About halfway through the narrative, a major twist deepens the mystery and deliberately undermines our expectations. New motives appear, new conflicts come to the surface and, in the gallop to the climax, there are more twists, more surprises and, eventually, a satisfying resolution which manages to thwart the many guilty parties and see justice prevail in different ways. But, while it seems like a happy ending, the final short paragraph conveys in a disarmingly simple style that the menace has not gone away. This is a welcome new voice in genre now known as tartan noir.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gritty Glasgow noir... 18 avril 2014
Par Raven - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Though it’s a debut, Black Mail can proudly sit alongside books by far more established writers in the Glasgow noir field. Daly effortlessly incorporates the seedy underbelly of the city in his portrayal of bent bookie Mike Harrison. Simon Ramsay is a lily-livered and morally weak man, completely adrift in this underground world, and Daly cleverly puts the impetus of the plot on his lover Laura, who reveals her hidden strengths in trying to deal with the situation she finds herself in. The tension that arises for her is well portrayed, as McAteer turns the screws on her and places her life in danger.

With the pace of the plot, your attention will be held throughout. The violence is swift and uncompromising, and necessary to the plot. McAteer is an exceptionally nasty piece of work and he adds to the overall tension of the book. He’s a sinister, ruthless and physically threatening hardman but the duplicity and violence in his nature are due to events in his past. McAteer is a great villain, yet his actions are only fuelled by the nefarious dirty dealings of the seemingly more respectable characters whose misdemeanours provide his bread and butter.

Equally, the characterisation of DCI Charlie Anderson and his partner DS O’Sullivan are also strengths of the book. The stoicism and dry humour of Anderson, whose aura of having seen it all is ruffled a little as the case progresses, is set against the more gung-ho and slightly naïve attitude of O’Sullivan. The latter displays all the essential qualities of a good detective, under the careful tutelage of Anderson. The interaction between them is a real highlight of the book, and a fondness for both characters is quickly achieved by the author, which bodes well for further outings for them. It was also refreshing to see two police characters that didn’t conform to the well-worn stereotypes of crime fiction focusing on marriage break-ups, alcoholism and so on.

All in all a highly enjoyable debut that fully captures the atmosphere and darker side of Glasgow, and the sordid dealings of some of its inhabitants. With the introduction of two brilliantly realised and likeable police protagonists, and an affectionate insight into their lives outside the job, Daly effectively sows the seed for a successful and long running series that I will be more than happy to return to. A solid police procedural and a writer to watch.
