Rather a downer!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paying For It (Gus Dury 1) (Paperback)
A rather depressing novel set in the murky underworld of Edinburgh. The principal charcter (I can't countenance the term "hero") is an ex-journalist sinking ever-deeper into alcoholism, who is commissioned to investigate the death of the son of a friend. It turns out that the dead man had been involved in people trafficking and various other crimes in the course of which he had crossed Edinburgh's burgeoning Russian gang community.
Interesting but too disjointed to be an enjoyable or rewarding read.
