"In Glasgow, a toddler goes missing, snatched from the front garden of his home." "But while the city braces itself for the discovery of a lone sexual predator, the police are led to the doors of two eleven-year-old boys." "Paddy Meehan - eighteen and fresh out of school - has just started work on the Scottish Daily News. Her conventional working-class parents assume that she will get married and start a family, but all Paddy dreams of is becoming an investigative reporter." "Everyone at the Daily News believes that the boys acted alone. Only Paddy feels that there may be more to it than this, and her hunger to uncover the truth sharpens when she discovers that one of the boys is her fiance's cousin. Unsure whether she is motivated by personal ambition or social concern, Paddy begins to ask awkward questions - much to the annoyance of her immediate family. Shunned by those closest to her, she soon finds herself dangerously alone." "Set in Glasgow in 1981, The Field of Blood is the first in a new crime series featuring Paddy Meehan."--BOOK JACKET.
