Description du produit

Revue de presse

'Another brilliantly sharp, witty and tough take on a hard city at a hard time ... a former cop, Russell is Britain's rising crime-writing star' Daily Mirror. (Daily Mirror)

'Storytelling at its very best!' Michael Connelly. (Michael Connelly)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Glasgow in the 1950s - private investigator Lennox is keeping a low profile, enjoying a fling with the daughter of shady bookie and greyhound breeder MacFarlane. When MacFarlane is found bludgeoned to death, Lennox is a suspect. Luckily, he has a solid gold alibi - he was in bed with the victim's daughter at the time.

It turns out MacFarlane was into some seriously dodgy stuff. One of Glasgow's notorious Three Kings, crime boss Willie Sneddon, is involved and he's not a man Lennox wants to cross. But there's an even bigger player out there, an elusive villain who makes the Three Kings look like minnows. Lennox is going to get his fingers burnt, badly.

If you're a fan of the genre, then this is “THE” book for you. A tough PI, with a smart mouth, irresistible for the ladies and his own moral code. Sure, there's a lot of inspiration here from the “giants” of the genre and maybe there's not that much originality except using Scotland as the setting, but the overall package is amazingly entertaining if you, like me, go crazy for this sort of story.
Its a shame there's no “femme fatale” in this second Lennox book, but you have a perfectly muddled and twist filled plot needed for a noir. Its a seedy atmosphere with even seedier characters and a bit of action between the investigation.
The book does feel a bit too long and, maybe as a result, the ending seemed a bit rushed and fell somewhat flat. Its like Russell just had to wrap things up quickly. The author had to resort to the bad guy holding a gun and explaining the whole plot to our hero, which, like I said before is less than original and even a bit campy. Unfortunately, after so much trouble, it seemed to whole thing was actually disappointingly simple and the stakes not that high after all. It hurt the overall impact of the book.
Still, there are some very funny lines, amusing dialogs, a good sense of pace and a strict following of the genre's tropes.
Its a very entertaining read, and a gem for hard-boiled fiction addicts. Like the first book, it just lacks that “special something” to really make it great, but the end result is more than worth your attention.

Lennox the enquiry agent gets involved in another case for Willie Sneddon, one of the Three Kings, the crime kingpins who control 1950s Glasgow. Just love the mixture of clever wit and gritty tough guy portrayed by Lennox. The dark smoky and wet Scottish city is a perfect backdrop for this classy noir thriller. The bad guys have great names like Small Change MacFarlane and Twinketoes McBride. Beautiful women,fixed boxing bouts and big 50's cars mix it up with big city gangsters. Lennox has to use all his fast thinking, fast talking and even faster fists to come out on the other side of this one. Lennox runs two cases, one a seemingly simple missing persons enquiry for a beautiful celebrity and the other trying to work out who put the scares on a championship boxer. Not always on the right side of the law, Lennox has to walk a fine line between working for the crime bosses and staying out of the way of Glasgow police who'd like nothing more than beating him to a pulp, locking him up and throwing away the keys.

I came across the Lennox books by accident and immediately had to read all three in the series. The character of Lennox is both dark and compassionate. He is interesting and thoroughly likable. This is the second in the trilogy but it does not matter in which order you read them. For me Craig Russell has written a thoroughly original detective series and I can not wait for more to come.

Still wondering why human beings are devious, black, and emtpy and still manage to be chaming and terribly familiar. Read this and all previous Lennox noir novels and get a glimpse of our darkest and jolliest soul at the same time.
