Product Description

Review

'A masterful blend of grit and gangsters overlaid with humour that's sharper than a 50s flick-knife on the streets of this mean city' Daily Record.

'Craig Russell's best yet ... from page one this book laid its grip around my interest and only let go when the final page was turned ... a brilliant addition to an excellent series that is getting seriously addictive with every instalment' Crimesquad.

'Craig Russell is really something special, offering both an energy and acute sense of period with a marked sense of atmosphere; the evocation of 1950s Glasgow here is immensely vivid' Good Book Guide.

From the Inside Flap

It's November 1956. The world is in turmoil, the Suez Crisis and the Hungarian Uprising boiling away in the background. Lennox, though, has more immediate concerns, like getting his personal life and his business back on track. In a bid to stay out of trouble, he's looking for more legitimate cases. Anything's better than working for the Three Kings, the crime bosses who run Glasgow's underworld. When a woman comes into his office and hires him to follow her philandering husband, it seems the perfect case. Straightforward, typical and, most of all, legal. As he begins to dig deeper, Lennox realizes that this is no simple case of marital infidelity. He finds himself caught by the police in a room with a dead body, pursued by shadowy members of the intelligence community, and the people he's been tracking start to track him. In the thick of it once more, Lennox has to draw on the violent, war-damaged part of his personality that he tries to keep buried as he follows a trail of dead men and broken hearts.

This is the fourth book in the Lennox series and having read them all this one has to be the best yet. Set in Glasgow in 1956 Lennox the P.I. gets involved in what he thinks should be an easy case to crack, this turns out not to be the case, he also gets a bit of help from an unlikely quarter. Cracking story , I had it read in two days, If you enjoyed the other Lennox books you certainly will enjoy this one and with all the usual Glasgow wit here and there through out the book it makes a very entertaining read.

Having thought that `The Deep Dark Sleep' was more dark in tone than the previous two `Dead Men and Broken Hearts' has gazumped it as Lennox finds himself in the throes of an almost existential crisis. With his personal relationships causing him no end of angst and a seemingly straightfoward case of marital infidelity devolving into an infinitely more complicated caper, Lennox really begins to question his place and occupation on the mean streets of Glasgow. As he tussles with a shadowy world of Hungarian emigres and a positively Scarlet Pimpernel-esque conman he once again finds himself on the wrong side of the law and living on his wits to untangle the nefarious mysteries of the cases he's involved in. Calling on the personal services on one of my favourite characters Twinkletoes McBride (whose chosen form of torture usually involves feet and boltcutters) there is the development of a wonderful `Odd Couple' humour that lightens the relief of this sombre tale but Mr Russell ramps up the personal pain for Lennox right at the end of the book with....well I can't tell you what...but it's very sad indeed although beautifully done. A great series which I implore you to read.

Another great outing for Lennox. Highly recommend this book especially to those who lived in Glasgow in the fifties and those who would like to know what it was like. He nails it. Great characterisation and black humour, excitement this book has it all.

Another excellent story in this series. Love the characters and setting for the Lennox books and they never fail to deliver. Evocative, tense and extremely taut thriller and I look forward to the next slice of this particular cake.

This is the fourth in the lennox series by craig russell and is a step up from his previous works which were all great. I've read everyone, and they have all been pageturners for me. I have read some reviews saying some of his characters can be a little bit stereotypical with their nicknames like twinkletoes and singer, but anyone who has spent anytime on the west coast of scotland will realise that such characters do in fact exist there. I can think of few off the top of my head but due to data protection wont name them.

The one thing that detracts a bit from the reality of the books(but funnily enough not the enjoyment) is the main protagonist's opinions of the cuisune of 50s Glasgow. As its written in first person, he is looking at it through the writer's own 21st century prism. But this does allow him carte blanche to come up with some cracking lines, which the book is full of. It also unfolds at a good pace, and it is action packed. If you havent got into Lennox yet, do it chronologically with Lennox, the long glasgow kiss, the deep dark sleep, and then dead men and broken hearts. If you have read the others and enjoyed them, then you certainly wont be dissapointed with this.
