About the Author

Douglas Skelton is a crime writer who specialises in the darker side of things: he's a former journalist who has published 11 books on true crime and criminal history. In 2011 he made the leap to writing crime fiction with a hugely successful series of thrillers featuring Davie McCall, a Glasgow hard man with a heart. The Dead Don't Boogie is his fifth novel and begins a new series.


"Crime to make you laugh out loud, with a new hero, warm and witty investigator Dominic Queste, delving into the dark side of the west of Scotland. I look forward to reading more Queste adventures." - Alex Gray's Books of the Year, The Times Crime Club. "A heady mixture of hardboiled detective novel and super-sharp black humour and it's a winning combination that will keep you engaged throughout." - Crime Fiction Lover. "A great read that draws you in and keeps you hooked until it spits you out, 235 extremely enjoyable pages later... satisfying and convincing, and unexpected." - Undiscovered Scotland. "The plot rattles along at break-neck speed. This is modern pulp fiction at its best... fast-paced and flippant." - Alastair Braidwood, Scots Whay Hae. "A simple commission to locate a missing young woman leads seedy former cokehead Dominic Queste into the dark side of Glasgow. Gangs, drugs and plenty of violence stand in the way of a happy outcome, but on the bright side Queste can be relied on to have a darkly witty take on his predicament." - The Times Crime Club. "Fast-paced, funny and frightening - Dominic Queste's first outing supplies it all." - Lin Anderson. "Absolutely brilliant. A quick-witted and vastly entertaining novel that takes Douglas Skelton into the crime fiction big league." - Alex Gray. "If you like your humour black and your detective novels hard boiled, The Dead Don't Boogie is a cut above the rest." - Theresa Talbot. "A white-knuckle, wisecracking thrill-ride." - Caro Ramsay
