Glasgow 1953: a hard city at a hard time. The war may be over but the battle for the streets is just beginning, and shady investigator Lennox is the man in the middle.
The McGahern twins were on the way up until Tam, the brains of the outfit, becomes the victim of a vicious contract killing. Tam's brother Frankie turns to Lennox to find out who killed his twin. Lennox refuses. Later that night, Frankie turns up dead, and Lennox finds himself in the frame for murder.
The only way of proving his innocence is to solve the crime - but he'll have to dodge men more deadly than Glasgow's crime bosses before he gets any answers.
Cant get enough!
Sean Barrett the narrator is a genius - this is one of many of books I have listened to led by him and I can't fault him - very atmospheric actor. As for Mr Russell - genius also. Im so excited to have discovered him - both the Glasgow and Hamburg books are fantastic. Reminds me a bit of James Lee Burke or James Ellroy for all the right reasons.
What a great book.
My first audiobook, it was fantastic. Unlike another reviewer I thought that the reader was excellent. I put this on my I phone and a whole week's journey into work became a pleasure!! More from Lenox please............
A great story let down by the narrator. His strange half scottish half american accent was very annoying and off putting and i found it unbearable to listen to for any longer than ten minutes!
