A Scottish prison guard is pushed to the brink in this suspenseful tale with “more plot twists . . . than a Vegas card shark” (Kirkus Reviews).

New guard Nicholas Glass has fallen in with the wrong crowd at “The Hilton,” a Scottish prison for violent offenders. The problem is, there’s no right crowd.
Bullied and abused by inmates and colleagues alike, Glass finds that each day is getting longer than the one before. When a group of cons uses outside help to threaten his wife and four-year-old daughter, he agrees to do them a “favor.” But, as their threats escalate, and one favor leads to another, he grows ever closer to breaking point. And when Glass breaks, he shatters . . .
Slammer is a mile-a-minute thriller shot through with a unique blend of dark humor and brutal mayhem. From an Edgar Award finalist whose work has been called “gripping noir” (Entertainment Weekly) and “character driven and exciting” (The Plain Dealer), it’s a dark, suspenseful journey through the seedier side of Edinburgh.
“A twisting labyrinth of a book that offers all Guthrie’s signature blood-racing energy, but with a deepening emotional heft that, by the end, leaves the reader breathless. His main character—his richest yet—sinks us down with him, and the results are both shocking and utterly heartrending.” —Megan Abbott
