The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter by Malcolm Mackay

It’s hard to kill a man well.  People who do it well know this.  People who do it badly find out the hard way.  The hard way has consequences.

A twenty-nine-year-old man lives alone in his Glasgow flat.  The telephone rings; a casual conversation, but behind this a job offer.  The clues are there if you know to look for them.

He is an expert.  A loner.  Freelance.  Another job is another job, but what if this organisation wants more?

A meeting at a club.  An offer.  A brief.  A target: Lewis Winter.

An arresting, gripping novel of dark relationships and even darker moralities: introducing a remarkable new voice in crime fiction

Peer & Press Reviews

On the evidence of his impressive debut Malcolm Mackay will no doubt be hailed as the newest member of the Tartan Noir community.  Yet the feel and style of The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter is more American than Scottish… a quietly absorbing gangland tale, full of moral ambiguities.

Marcel Berlins, Times

I finished it almost in a sitting.  The prose is spare and taut and pulls the reader into the minds of the disparate characters… beautifully and truthfully written with the deceptive simplicity of a fine short story.

Ann Cleeves

A dark, rich, brutal thriller… it absolutely captivates you.  The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter is more than a page turner, it’’s a page ripper.  For a debut novel this sparkles, this zings, it leaps off the page.  If you like Ian Rankin, if you like Stuart MacBride, if you like Val McDermid, Denise Mina – Malcolm Mackay is right up there.

Peter James
