The blistering new Glasgow crime novel from the award-winning author of the Glasgow Trilogy.

"The plot is meticulous, the dialogue sharp, the emotions edgy. Mackay turns in another mesmeric performance" The Times

He has to clear thoughts of Joanne and thoughts of the past out of his mind. He has to think about himself, his situation. Think about the next hour. The last thirty two years don't matter; whatever remains of the rest of his life doesn't matter. It's the next hour. In that hour, everything will be decided.

Usman Kassar is comfortable in his older brother's shadow, for now. Staying off the radars of the big players lets him plan big scores with little danger of detection. But dangerous jobs will get you noticed, whether you want them to or not.

Martin Sivok is a gunman without a target. An outsider in a new city who doesn't know how to make a fresh start. But when you desperately need doors to start opening, someone like Usman might just persuade you to pull at the wrong handle - like the one that opens a safe full of dirty money. Dirty money that the Jamieson organization, one of the most dangerous criminal outfits in town, wants back.

Any job can have brutal consequences when it threatens the reputation of Nate Colgan. Nate can't help being frightening; a man with darkness inside him. As the reluctant 'security consultant' for a fracturing criminal organisation, he knows that unless he recovers the stolen money quickly, much more than his livelihood will be on the line. But if you've been forced into a job that you know could be your ending, how hard will you fight to keep it?

A multi-layered, humane and unnerving portrait of gangland Glasgow, For Those Who Know the Ending is the gripping new novel from the award-winning Malcolm Mackay.
