Douglas Brodie Synopsis: The Hanging Shed is the first novel in the Douglas Brodie quartet by author Gordon Ferris. Last time he was home, he a young warrior in a kilt. Now, the war has ended, Douglas Brodie is back in Scotland and he must save an old friend (Hugh Donovan) from being put to death. It was thought Hugh died during battle, but instead he came back alive. Mutilated and burned, but alive. Hugh has been keeping to himself; the only time he goes anywhere is to get heroin to help numb the pain. When a young boy is found raped and murdered, the police only consider one suspect. Hugh insists he’s innocent, but the police have a mountain of evidence against him. Brodie, however, feels like he must try and help his childhood friend out. Along with Samantha Campbell, an advocate, Brodie heads out to the western part of the country in search of the truth. What he finds are troulesome priests, corrupt cops and a deadly gang. As time runs out for Hugh, the murder count increases.
