When Elephants Walk Through the Gorbals is a gritty thriller, set in 1970s Glasgow, involving a close-to-the-edge detective, a suicidal journalist, five murders and a young art student’s chance meeting with a stranger on a train which draws him into the heart of darkness of the city.

Against the backdrop of the decaying city, the characters are pushed inexorably towards a dramatic, nail-biting finale after which nothing will ever be the same again.

The novel won third-prize in won third place in the Luke Bitmead Memorial Bursary, run by Legend Press – following such luminaries as Sophie Duffy, and Andrew Blackman onto the podium – and has been extensively revised since its success in the competition.
