Wise-cracking investigator Dominic Queste is on the trail of a serial killer. But this is no mask-wearing, chainsaw-wielding maniac targeting young teens. The killer begins to taunt Queste, to shadow him, to terrorise him. It's all part of a game of death and Queste doesn't know the rules. And he's not the only one in the line of fire.

Tag - You're Dead Summary

Tag - You're Dead by Douglas Skelton

Maverick investigator Dominic Queste is on the trail of missing butcher Sam Price. But he soon uncovers links to a killer with a taste for games. What began as a simple favour for his girlfriend quickly descends into a battle for survival against an enemy who has no qualms about turning victims into prime cuts. Amidst a twisted game of cat and mouse, suspicious coppers, vicious crooks and a seemingly random burglary, Queste has to keep his wits about him. Or he might just find himself on the butcher's block.

Tag - You're Dead Reviews

Skelton takes the usual ingredients of the crime novel then adds his own sparkle. Witty, well observed, compelling - this is a book you'll want to savour. A fine, fine writer, at the very top of his game. -- Denzil Meyrick
A thoroughly gripping whodunit that shows just how darkly humorous Tartan Noir can become: and how genuinely chilling it can be at the same time. -- Undiscovered Scotland
There is a wonderful old-school PI feel in modern times about this book that I simply adored. With dry wit and off-the-cuff banter, the fast-paced plot will keep the reader turning the pages in this quirky, cool and fantastically clever storyline. -- Crime Book Junkie
Stands out from the crowd... A highly entertaining and gripping read. By the Letter blog; Top-notch writing, top-notch storytelling, some brilliantly observed life realities and really believable, well-drawn characters. -- Liz Loves Books
A dark, suspenseful thriller... top, top reading. Grab This Book; Raymond Chandler meets Glasgow gangland: Dominic Queste is a breath of humorous fresh air in what is a dark, fast-paced, one-liner wisecrack of a read! -- Chapter In My Life
The Dead Don't Boogie introduced us to a memorable new star of Scottish crime fiction, but Tag - You're Dead takes what Douglas Skelton started with that book and dials everything up to 11. Funnier, wittier, darker and more dangerous than its predecessor, it is a novel which dares you to put it down and wins every time. -- Scots Whay Hae
A tense and exciting thriller. Gritty, memorable writing, a superb lead character, witty dry humour, all in a multi-layered, enjoyable story. -- Random Things
So noir, you almost need a torch to read it... The style is authentic, heady and pitch-perfect... A fun read, a sobering one and every page is compelling. -- Blue Book Balloon
Brilliant... a great story, with some fantastic characters. -- Steph's book blog
