Lorimer & Brightman Synopses: A Small Weeping by Alex Gray is the second Lorimer and Brightman novel. The body of a prostitute is found at Queen Street Station in Glasgow, her hands, pointing towards her feet, placed as if in prayer, a small flower placed between the palms. Psychologist Solomon Brightman is called to assist DCI Lorimer in the murder hunt, with the hope that his lateral thinking will shine a light on the case from a different angle. But before any conclusions can be drawn, the body of a nurse is discovered at The Grange, a private clinic. Aside from the careful arrangement of the corpses, there is no obvious connection between the victims; Lorimer and Solomon are still very much in the dark. Then when yet another body turns up, it seems increasingly clear that they have a serial killer in their midst.

Shadow of Sounds is book 3 in the Lorimer & Brightman series by Alex Gray. The Glasgow Orchestra is rehearsing to perform, but little do they know of the sequence of events happening backstage. When George Millar, the orchestra’s leader, is brutally murdered in his dressing room, his colleagues are shocked. But the show must go on. DCI Lorimer and psychologist Solomon Brightman are dispatched to investigate. What they uncover is a series of irrevocably tangled relationships between the orchestra members. Up until his death Millar had been involved in homosexual relationships with several other orchestra members and was well known for playing his lovers off against one another – but were his controversial dalliances really enough to incite cold-blooded murder?
