Publisher's Summary

Lennox liked Quiet Tommy Quaid. Perhaps it's odd for a private detective to like - even admire - a career thief, but Quiet Tommy Quaid was the sort of man everyone liked.
Amiable, easygoing, well dressed, with no vices to speak of - well, aside from his excessive drinking and womanising, but then, in 1950s Glasgow those were practically virtues. And besides, throughout his many exploits outside the law, Quiet Tommy never once used violence.
It was rumoured to be the police who gave him his nickname - because whenever they caught him, which was not often, he always went quietly. So probably even the police liked him, deep down.
Above all, the reason people liked Tommy was that he you knew exactly what you were dealing with. Here, everybody realised, was someone who was exactly, simply and totally who and what he seemed to be.
But when Tommy turns up dead, Lennox and the rest of Glasgow will find out just how wrong they were.

Another winner

This was another goodie in this series about the Canadian detective Lennox who is trying to stay on the right side of the law. Lennox finds this hard work in the post war Glasgow were there seems more bad guys than good ones. He almost seems like the Scots Canadian cousin of Philip Marlow.

Sean Barrett has the low gravelly voice that give a laconic tone that perfectly describes Lennox and his Scotland.

So good, the series should work on the big screen

This story, the characters and of course Sean Barratt's portrayal of Lennox was superb....as it has always been.
The blend of the dark elements of his character, Glasgow and the humour work perfectly together.
Rarely have I been so gripped by a set of stories that I feel disappointed I have to wait until another instalment become
