"Hugh C. Rae is the forgotten man of tartan noir"
-- Allan Guthrie, author of Kiss Her Goodbye

On a bleak, rainy autumn night, a sports car skids into the driveway of a hospital outside a small town near Glasgow. As it spins to a stop, the driver flees into the adjacent woods. In the passenger seat, the son of the town's most prominent citizen is dead of a heroin overdose.

Spurred by the trouble of death and the first known appearance of heroin in their community, the local police force, led by Superintendent McCaig, dive into the search for the pusher which uncovers many strange patterns - bitter love affairs, sexual deviations and addiction - all bound to a ruthless pursuit of power and status within a rural community which has never before acknowledged that progress can bring evil in its wake as well as contentment.

The Shooting Gallery is a story of psychological suspense that you will find hard to put aside.
