9781444700473: Proof of Life

Chief Inspector Anna Cameron is a woman with everything to lose. Her life is finally back on track, but the mistakes she made in the past are about to come back to haunt her.

When a body is discovered in a Glasgow canal, the death proves to have an unexpected link to something Anna wants desperately to forget. As Glasgow pulses with the threat of terrorist attack and growing civil discontent, she realises everything she holds dear is at risk . . .

The explosive fourth novel from Karen Campbell, Gold Dagger-shortlisted author of SHADOWPLAY, AFTER THE FIRE and THE TWILIGHT TIME.

About the Author:

Karen Campbell is a former police officer who lives in Glasgow with her family.

Review:

'...This is the type of rule-breaking that separates the good from the great. Proof of Life places Campbell firmly in the latter camp. Ambitious, entirely authentic, and razor-sharp in its observations, it is a superb addition to the Scottish crime canon.'―www.bookgeeks.co.uk

With lashings of black humour and wry observation, [PROOF OF LIFE] deftly captures the essence of Glasgow itself, the ebb and flow of the city's energy, its epic patter and inimitable swagger.―Herald Summer Reads

Karen Campbell deserves to be admitted to membership of what's becoming a very large club - Scottish crime writers of excellence.―The Times on SHADOWPLAY

It is the sensitive and occasionally comic depictcion of Anna - surely one of the most fully realised characters in modern crime fiction - that really makes this novel work.―Independent on Sunday

Fearlessly plotted . . . This slow-burn thriller exploits the classics of the genre - secrets, lies and misdirection - but does it so skilfully that the mechanics are camouflaged amid the emotional entanglements of lives lived . . . Campbell, an accomplished wordsmith, excels here. You can touch and smell her Glasgow November dreichness, but always her images are unexpected, her prose tight, and her narrative unflinching . . . The denouement is head-behind-cushion nightmarish, brilliantly done.―Scotsman

'Fearlessly plotted... This slow-burn thriller exploits the classics of the genre - secrets, lies and misdirection - but does it so skilfully that the mechanics are camouflaged amid the emotional entanglements of lives lived... Campbell, an accomplished wordsmith, excels here. You can touch and smell her Glasgow November dreichness, but always her images are unexpected, her prose tight, and her narrative unflinching. As a former Strathclyde Police officer, she has no illusions about the pressures and compromises, the dogged determination and unlooked-for heroism, of the job. This is no police procedural - her officers are raw and real... The denouement is head-behind-cushion nightmarish, brilliantly done.'―Scotsman
