Publisher's Summary

Glasgow 1953: a hard city at a hard time. The war may be over but the battle for the streets is just beginning, and shady investigator Lennox is the man in the middle.
The McGahern twins were on the way up until Tam, the brains of the outfit, becomes the victim of a vicious contract killing. Tam's brother Frankie turns to Lennox to find out who killed his twin. Lennox refuses. Later that night, Frankie turns up dead, and Lennox finds himself in the frame for murder.
The only way of proving his innocence is to solve the crime - but he'll have to dodge men more deadly than Glasgow's crime bosses before he gets any answers.

Gripping

Like in all the best thrillers the protagonist is a creature of dark and light, but it's dark that pervades this Glasgow noir tale of murder and brutality. The mid-20th century British setting places the action close to home whilst giving the tale historical interest. The key to a good audiobook however is in the narration, and here it's superb. I can't imagine anyone else doing a better job as Lennox's mouthpiece.

Brilliant

I have listened to Russell's 3 'Fabel' books set in Hamburg and have loved them all and can only hope for a lot more in the future. This is something a bit different from him but still written with a style and grace that brings everything to life and with a story that is compelling. If you enjoy Ian Rankin or Michael Connelly then you will love Craig Russell.
