31st August 1997. Rose Wilson is 14, but looks 16. Pimped out by her ‘boyfriend’, she has seen more of the darkness in life than someone twice her age.
On the night of Princess Diana's death, Rose snaps and commits two terrible crimes. But a defence lawyer takes pity and sets out to do what he can to save her.
Present day. DI Alex Morrow is a witness in the case of Michael Brown – a vicious, nasty arms dealer. During the trial, while he is held in custody, Brown's fingerprints are found at the scene of a murder in the Red Road flats. It's a mystery that Morrow just can't let go.

Great entertainment, really enjoyed
Too many twists and turns!
I like Denise Mina's novels a lot but found this one over complicated and too self-consciously "arty". The first hour introduces so many story lines and time shifts that I almost gave up. It is a book that would probably work better as a text than an audiobook.... I kept wanting to look back to see who was who.
No. I've liked most of Denise Mina's books and this is a genre I generally enjoy.
McCarron is a good narrator and does her best with the text. The character of Rose is particularly interesting and I was disappointed that her capitulation at the end didn't fit in with the character which had been portrayed until then.
It could make a good short tv series though they would need to lose some of the vast cast of characters.
