The shadows hide a deadly story . . .

1979: It is the winter of discontent, and reporter Allie Burns is chasing her first big scoop. There are few women in the newsroom and she needs something explosive for the boys' club to take her seriously.

Soon Allie and fellow journalist Danny Sullivan are exposing the criminal underbelly of respectable Scotland. They risk making powerful enemies - and Allie won't stop there.

When she discovers a home-grown terrorist threat, Allie comes up with a plan to infiltrate the group and make her name. But she's a woman in a man's world . . . and putting a foot wrong could be fatal.

“McDermid does not hold back . . . With its retrospective feminist rage, its Glaswegian setting and a relatable central character, 1979 has all the ingredients for yet another successful McDermid series.” - Sydney Morning Herald

“A queen of the genre in Britain . . . The plot is engrossing, the period atmosphere brilliant, and who can ever get enough of the way Scottish people talk?” - Kirkus Reviews
