Gordon Smart: A Rendezvous With Death

Today I’m joining the blog tour for A Rendezvous With Death. I’m shining a spotlight on this brilliant sounding book with thanks to Zoe O’Farrell for inviting me on the blog tour.


When a schoolteacher, Monica Porter, is brutally murdered in her Glasgow west end flat, DI Shazia Khan leads the investigation to catch her killer and uncovers a tangled web of lies.

Meanwhile, cynical journalist Fergus Mulrein becomes captivated by beautiful Russian model Olga Yevdokimova when she reaches out to him for help.

In Glasgow’s violent underworld notorious gangster Paul Murray is determined to maintain his dominance through his powerful connections whatever the cost to others.

The characters’ lives criss-cross amidst a background of political conflict and corruption.

Can DI Khan solve the mystery of who killed Monica Porter and why?
