It’s also home to The Creepers, a notorious team of housebreakers whose reign of terror must come to an end. However, it’s not just The Creepers that Thoroughgood must contend with. Working with his partner Harry Currie, the Scottish detective must battle corruption within the force and work to stop a plot that would destroy cities across the North of England, discovering a fabled piece of Glasgow criminal folklore along the way – the Blood Acre.
The Blood Acre is a crime thriller featuring Angus Thoroughgood. He’s now a Community Constable and newly partnered with an older constable, Harry Currie, who is close to retiring.
Together they are assigned to the Briarknock area of Glasgow, an area rife with petty crime, drugs and a home breaking gang, The Creepers. Can they make a difference? or does someone want it left exactly as it is?
This is Gritty, violent, gruesome and utterly gripping. It’s twisty plot and great well developed characters make this a compelling thriller.
