'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.
