(DCI Lorimer Book 4)

The Riverman

Amazon  /  Goodreads


Fans of atmospheric police procedurals will love watching Glasgow vividly come to life with the shocking twists and turns that have made Alex Gray an international bestseller.

When a dead body is fished out of Glasgow’s River Clyde the morning after an office celebration, it looks like a case of accidental death. But an anonymous telephone call and a forensic toxicology test give Detective Chief Inspector William Lorimer reason to think otherwise. Probing deeper into the life and business of the deceased accountant, a seemingly upright member of the community, Lorimer finds only more unanswered questions.

What is the secret his widow seems to be concealing? Was the international accounting firm facing financial difficulties? What has become of the dead man’s protégé who has disappeared in New York? And when another employee is found dead in her riverside flat these questions become much more disturbing. Lorimer must cope not only with deceptions from the firm, but also with suspicions from those far closer to home …

Praise for the Book

“Brings Glasgow to life in the same way Ian Rankin evokes Edinburgh.” ~ Daily Mail (UK)

“Gray has no equal when it comes to unmasking killers and she has excelled herself here … Gray is the new master of Scottish crime writing.” ~ Scottish Daily Express

“I enjoy these books from Alex Gray. I like the fact that it is set in Scotland. If you enjoy a good detective book you will enjoy this.” ~ Shirley McDonald

“All are very good stories, although I would recommend reading them in the order that they were written, to keep track of the Inspector’s personal life.” ~ AB


Alex Gray was born and educated in Glasgow. After studying English and Philosophy at the University of Strathclyde, she worked as a visiting officer for the Department of Health, a time she looks upon as postgraduate education since it proved a rich source of character studies. She then trained as a secondary school teacher of English.

Alex began writing professionally in 1993 and had immediate success with short stories, articles, and commissions for BBC radio programs. She has been awarded the Scottish Association of Writers’ Constable and Pitlochry trophies for her crime writing.

A regular on the Scottish bestseller lists, she is the author of thirteen DCI Lorimer novels. She is the co-founder of the international Scottish crime writing festival, Bloody Scotland, which had its inaugural year in 2012.

  1. Thank you for hosting this stop on my virtual tour with Partnersincrime. The Riverman has been such a special book for me: it was the novel that created a great bidding war for the rights and launched my present career with publisher, Little Brown UK. Later the start of that same book was used in a choral symphony, Colours of the Clyde, by composer, Ken Walton. Although it is the fourth in the Lorimer series it is the first of the nine in my backlist that Harper Collins (William Morrow) have brought to the US. All in all, one of my favourite books! Happy reading and best wishes, Alex

    • That’s fabulous. Would have loved to sign up for reviewing it too…but, alas, there are only so many hours in the day. It is on my reading list, though. Thanks so much for dropping in and congrats!

    • Doesn’t it, though? I wanted to read for review, but just not enough time. Maybe I’ll get it from the library…
