The body on the mortuary slab wasn’t who Glasgow PI Charlie Cameron was looking for.

But it wasn’t a stranger.

Suddenly, a routine missing persons investigation becomes a fight for survival. As Charlie is dragged deeper into Glasgow’s underbelly he goes up against notorious gangster Jimmy Rafferty and discovers what fear really is.

Old Friends and New Enemies, the second book in the  Charlie Cameron series finds Charlie working two cases: finding Cecelia McNeil’s husband, who disappeared the day before the funeral of their son, and a more personal one. While checking an unidentified body to make sure it’s not the missing husband, Charlie is shocked and horrified to recognise his old friend, Ian Selkirk. Ian’s body had been washed up on the beach at Luss, on the banks of Loch Lomond. Charlie and Ian, along with another close friend, Fiona, were very close and spent a lot of time together when they were in their twenties. Charlie hasn’t seen either of them for years but knows he has to get back in touch with Fiona in the light of Ian’s murder.
