The Accused by Owen Mullen

When Private Investigator Charlie Cameron agrees to take on a cold case, he is drawn back into Glasgow’s dark underworld…

Glasgow PI Charlie Cameron knew Kim Rafferty was bad news the moment they met. Desperate people always spelled trouble in his experience, and Mrs Rafferty was as desperate as they come. What she was asking for was insane. If he agreed to help the wife of the notorious East-End gangster, the consequences for them both could be fatal.

Twenty-four hours later, another betrayed woman with a hopeless case is pleading for Charlie’s help. The PI is her only chance to keep an innocent man from serving a second prison sentence for murders he didn’t commit.

Dennis Boyd is on the run, and as Charlie fights against the clock to keep him out of jail, he crosses a line that puts him on the wrong side of the law and pits him against his old friend and ally, DS Andrew Geddes.

As the body count grows, and the defence for his client falls apart bit by bit, Charlie refuses to accept the inevitable. But everyone has their limits – even the infamous Charlie Cameron. Will he be forced to admit that this case may be the one to beat him…

My Thoughts


PI Charlie Cameron is certainly no stranger to a difficult investigation, but when he is drawn back into the troubling underworld in Glasgow once more, he is faced with one of his most difficult and troubling cases yet.

When Charlie is approached by a woman who is desperate for his help in order to clear her husbands name, Charlie finds it impossible to refuse and is instantly immersed in a world full of danger and deceit. As his latest client is on the run, Charlie is racing against the clock as he attempts to clear the man’s name and also try to remove himself from this world of danger as quickly as possible.

As he gets ever closer to the truth, long buried secrets and resentments come to light, making this an utterly captivating story from the moment it begins. As always, Owen Mullen has produced a story that is overflowing with drive and suspense throughout, and this latest instalment certainly didn’t disappoint.

The characters are well fleshed out and have their own unique personalities and complex, well structured life stories to share along the way. The storyline is unique and perfectly plotted, keeping you completely immersed in the world in which he has so brilliantly created. Another fantastic read I would urge others to delve in to.
