Product description

Review

’It's one of those novels that as soon as I finished it, I looked forward to reading it again. Not only did I love the evocative recreation of Glasgow but the characters created were refreshing and surprising. It was such a pleasure to read’ Susan Calman

‘A totally gripping murder mystery, thought provoking but thoroughly entertaining’ NB Magazine

‘Pacy, inventive, assured – and authentic … a story of brilliantly crafted shifts of plot and pace … McIlvanney is a writer with unfolding, developing and substantial gifts’ The Herald

‘Skilfully dovetailed … atmospheric … a solidly crafted and satisfying detective story’ Laura Wilson, Guardian

‘An absolute master of Tartan noir … the corruption of the late Sixties is splendidly evoked, as is DI Duncan McCormack’ Daily Mail

'Atmospheric and arresting, The Quaker reveals 1960s Glasgow in all its lurid shades' Val McDermid

'This is a terrific novel, dark, powerful and beautifully written. I finished it a while ago, but I'm still haunted by the characters and the place' Ann Cleeves

‘The Quaker is one of my favourite reads of the year. A powerhouse of a book with Liam McIlvanney's full lyrical powers on display. Loved it’ Steve Cavanagh

‘Another atmospheric, scary and utterly brilliant book from Liam McIlvanney. Superb’ Adrian McKinty

Praise for Liam McIlvanney:

‘An authentic, atmospheric and ambitious debut’ Val McDermid

‘Gripping, unflinching … McIlvanney has flair and assurance and executes a powerful tale with all the dexterous sensitivity and ballsy swagger the subject is due’ Scotland on Sunday

‘This is a bold, impressive debut’ Daily Telegraph

‘Superb storytelling, a wonderful eye for character, and a passion for dialogue’ Daily Mail

‘McIlvanney tells the story with clarity, terrific dialogue and convincing characters’ The Times
