Cold Hands

by John J Niven

A dark and disturbing novel, in which flashbacks of 1980's Glasgow reveal a horrific secret past. It offers blood and gore revenge by the bucket full.


We were doing Macbeth, for O-level English, and we’d been reading the scene where Duncan’s wife and baby are killed. I was quiet. He put his books down, removed his glasses and rubbed his eyes. ‘In your own time, William,’ he said quietly.
‘Whatever’s on your mind. In your own time.’
I looked down at my shoes, the plastic prison shoes, and spoke softly through the fringe that hung down covering my face.
