An extraordinary debut by a Scottish mystery writer, this cult classic of crime fiction presents Detective Jack Laidlaw, a policeman as complex and self-critical as you'll ever meet. Laidlaw follows the trail of murder investigation deep inot the underbelly of Glasgow, a world he knows the way Phillip Marlowe knew Los Angeles.

    The narrator has put his heart in the performance, but the recording is not perfect. It is at times difficult to understand even after rewinding 5 times. The plot is very interesting, dark, rough, funny, desperate, and hopeless.
