Good news for all Charles P Sharkey fans, and all lovers of a good story well-told. Sharkey has produced three excellent though very different books for Ringwood over the past few years: Dark Loch, a story of the impact on a Scots rural community of the First World War; The Volunteer, an examination of ‘the troubles’ in Northern Ireland; and Memoirs of Franz Scheiber, about life in Berlin during the inter-war years. All three are still available for purchase as a paperback from this website, or as an ebook from Amazon or the Kindle store.

Charlie, a well-known criminal lawyer in Glasgow for the past 25 years, has finally succumbed to urgings from his publisher to write about what he knows best and has produced Satan’s Cut, a tale of crime and the criminal justice system set in Glasgow.

Set on the gritty streets of Glasgow in winter, Inspector Frank Dorsey and his partner DC George Mitchell come across a dead body they believe to be linked to the Moffats, one of the biggest crime families in Glasgow. However, as they begin to delve further into the case, not all is as it seems, as the victim was sent a cryptic text message days before their death. What does the message have to do with the case? How are the Moffats involved? And will Inspector Dorsey be able to crack it before another body shows up?

With twists and turns at every corner, experience this heart-pumping tale by one of the most exciting writers in Scotland.

Satan’s Cut (Initially titled The Last Supper) will be formally launched sometime shortly after lockdown restrictions are lifted and social occasions like Book Launches are allowed again and able to take place safely. However, the book is available for pre-order NOW!

Order your copy/copies now and they will be posted out to you as soon as the book is published and current restrictions on posting are removed.
