Well if you've not discovered the Lennox series by Craig Lewis, and you like well written crime- drama with excellent humour you'll love this.
If you though the chances of bringing Philip Marlowe to Glasgow in the 1950's is a hopeless task, then you are wrong. This book simply has it all.
I am not listened to a new audiobook with such a sense fo pleasure for a long time. OK there are some anachronisms I think - like a remarkable number of people seem to have private phones in 1950's Glasgow, perhaps they did.
Sean Barrett reading is as always first class.
Buy it !

What a surprise
This book is set in the 1950's and it is not a period that I have much interest in and probably would not have chosen it if I had known. What a mistake that would have been. It is a fast flowing, well read and interesting book that I enjoyed greatly. The plot is set in Glasgow and the main character is a Canadian who just stayed there after the war. He becomes involved as a PI in a case that leads him through many twists and turns of plot. The characters are well brought out and the places well described. It was odd listening to a book about a PI who has non of the modern aids of technology and the fact that this man dealt with his case with his wits and physical strength made for a good tale. It is a long book but I would highly recommended it.
