(2018)
(The second book in the Dakar and Scott series)
A novel by

 
 
Another person should not pay the price for your actions ... especially murder.

Stewart Scott is a trainee in one of Edinburgh's oldest law firms, competing to stand out and land a permanent position. He gets a crucial make-or-break chance to impress when his boss seconds him to a private investigation into the murder of the son of one of the firm's partners.

Leading the probe is ex-copper Sebastian Dakar, now a practising Zen master. The pair have just three days. The police are about to announce an arrest.

Can they crack the case and prevent an innocent man from standing trial for a crime he did not commit? What can a vengeful jounalist dredge up from Dakar's past that threatens justice being done? What exactly is justice and at what price does it come?

Euan B. Pollock's new novel The Price to Pay is a tight, intelligent and witty crime mystery with a classic feel but with a rasping Glaswegian edge.

Praise for Euan B. Pollock



'A great debut novel ... combines a Christie-like locked room murder mystery with a good dollop of Brookmyre Scottishness.' - Stuart MacLeod on Tricks of the Trade

'Excellent first novel with a classic theme, reminiscent of a 21st century Agatha Christie.' - Rosemary Maconald on Tricks of the Trade.

'A supremely satisfying murder-mystery that is slick, savvy and moreish, The Price To Pay rocks along with a spring in its step and authenticity in its heart. Scott and Dakar once again prove a duo you can really get behind, while both are challenged in their own enthralling ways - Scott with troubles of the heart, Dakar with demons from his past. Surprising, exciting and immersive.' - Robert Parker, author of A Wanted Man
