Dominic Queste is back – but playing a deadly game

Posted on April 25, 2017

Tag – You’re Dead is the new hard-hitting crime thriller with an edge of dark wit from McIlvanney prize-shortlisted author Douglas Skelton. It’s out on 27 April 2017.

The second novel in the Dominic Queste series – following on from last year’s The Dead Don’t Boogie – sees the maverick investigator on the trail of missing butcher Sam Price. But he soon uncovers links to a killer with a taste for games.

What began as a simple favour for his girlfriend quickly descends into a battle for survival against an enemy who has no qualms about turning victims into prime cuts.

Amidst a twisted game of cat and mouse, suspicious coppers, vicious crooks and a seemingly random burglary, Queste will need all his street smarts to outwit the enemy and keep staying alive.

Or he might just find himself on the butcher’s block.


Douglas Skelton will be launching Tag – You’re Dead at Waterstones, Ayr, on 27th April at 7pm; and at Waterstones, Argyle St, Glasgow, on 4th May, 6.30pm, with Caro Ramsay.
