Product description


'Vivid and compelling, with a dark sense of place, even darker characters, and deliciously noir humour' Peter James * Peter James * 'Set in 1950's Glasgow, it is tartan noir at its noirest - compelling and dark' Scottish Sunday Herald. * Scottish Sunday Herald * 'Russell's 1950s Glasgow is dank, murky and excellently realised. Slick, chilling and excellently written' The Scotsman. * Scotsman * 'Russell is a truly gifted story teller and this tale of life in post WWII Glasgow is brimming with rich descriptions of larger-than-life characters' Euro Crime. * Euro Crime * 'Lennox is entertainingly dodgy ... in an engaging caper with a setting made for all manner of elaborate crimes' Sunday Times. * Sunday Times * 'This series just gets better and better in my eyes - accomplished plotting, great characterisation melded with a perfect balance of grim violence and wise-cracking dialogue' Raven Crime Reads. * Raven Crime Reads * 'the Glasgow that Russell conjures up is dark, cold and shabby, but poised on the edge of the more promising 60s. It's seen through the eyes of the classic crime hero outsider, Lennox... [Craig Russell] remains one of the more intelligent and sophisticated proponents of the genre' Glasgow Herald. * Glasgow Herald *
