‘Worst Case Scenario is a deliciously dark, unapologetically funny psychological thriller by the international bestselling author of The Cry. The harrowing plot keeps you gripped until the final, devastating revelation’ Sunday Mirror
Doug Johnstone is a Scottish crime writer. His novels include Fault Lines from 2018 and his 2015 book The Jump which was was shortlisted for the McIlvanney Prize for Best Scottish Crime Novel. The Scotsman described him as “a master of the page-turning, heart-gripping, plot-driven tale.” He grew up in Arbroath and lives in Portobello, Edinburgh with his wife and two children. Johnstone is also a co-founder of the Scotland Writers Football Club.
Breakers is a pulsatingly tense, deeply moving and devastatingly dark psychological thriller from the Number One bestselling author of Fault Lines. “This may be Doug Johnstone’s best book yet. An unsparing yet sympathetic depiction of Edinburgh’s ignored underclass, with terrific characterisation. Tense, pacy, filmic.” –Ian Rankin
