    Another quality instalment in this series which I am really enjoying.Loving all the twists and "Game of Thrones"-like tendency to kill off major characters willy nilly !On to the next one

    Absolutely loved this book! Book number 2 in the series and enjoyed it even more than book number 1. Thankfully I have book number 3 ready and waiting! Love Davie McCall and can't wait to find out what happens to him next. Gritty, true to life crime drama set in Glasgow in the 1980s. What's not to like? Highly recommended to fans of this genre

    A brilliant Scottish crime book that was hard to put down. This is the 2nd book in the Davie McCall series and I loved this as much as the 1st book. Douglas Skelton is the top of my list of favourite authors. I can't wait to read devils knock the 3rd book in the seriesk,'

    As someone who worked in the Gorbals in the early 90's this was a bit of a trip down memory lane for me. The characters are all too real and the Glasgow humour is all spot on. Great book, read it in a day, and I'm moving straight on to book 3.

    A Mean CityI thought Blood City would be a hard act to follow but Mr Skelton has produced a follow-up every bit as good as the first book in the series.Crow Bait continues Davie McCall's journey through the Glasgow underworld and his growing awareness of his place in it. It is all the more chilling for the unfairness of the characters day to day life, an ordinariness punctuated by shocking acts of callous violence.An outstanding read and would have been a five star but for my slight disappointme [...]

    A Hard Hitting Tale A further installment in the life of Davie McCall hard hitting with a powerful stench of violence this book will keep you enthralled from first word until you reach the final one

    Davie McCall is in the notorious Glasgow prison, Barlinnie, AKA the Bar-L. He was convicted for a robbery by perjured evidence and given two-and-a-half years inside. Davie is the model prisoner until he’s attacked by fellow inmate Jinky Harris with a Bar-L Special – a toothbrush with inset razor blades – an improvised weapon designed to kill. Davie evades the attack, but seriously harms Harris when the blackness within him bursts to the surface. A prison guard, Lomas, says Davie attacked H [...]

    When I read and reviewed the first in this series a few months ago I said that this opener hit the ground running, providing a bucket load of action which didn't let go until the last page. Well, this follow-up continues right where that left off.We pick up Davie McCall on his release from prison. He has been there a little while longer than expected and we learn why and what has been happening to him and the other characters over the past 10 years in flashback. Enough of the story from the firs [...]

    This is the second in the Davie McCall series and what a sequel! It is absolutely brilliant, I loved it. It jumps on 10 years from Blood City and takes up Davie's story from his release from prison. He is now 28 and the world has changed since he was imprisoned at the age of 18. Drugs have taken over the city as predicted,and guns are more freely available, leading to a increase in the level of violence. This book was even better than the first one I felt, as we got a better understanding of Dav [...]

    I received this as an arc from net galley in exchange for an honest review. Davie MMccall I'd nearing the end of his prison sentence following the events of blood city. As well as forcing him to grow up fast, prison has introduced him to a new cast of criminals and unfortunates. Wow. OMG. Wow. Absolutely fantastic read. CNPID. Read in one sitting. I loved the story and the characters. I loved Davie. He was my favourite character. Even though he was a bad boy. Had me gripped from start to finish. [...]
