Working undercover on behalf of the police, McNee's mission is to get close to aging gangster David Burns and uncover his secrets.

His cover at risk of being blown at any moment, in this deadly game McNee is beginning to realize he's expendable.
To survive, he's going to have to change the rules...Dark, violent and psychologically gripping, Cry Uncle blends the grit of classic American hardboiled fiction with a distinctly Scottish voice and attitude.
