This is a great series with some laugh out loud lines. I read the first three out of order. Didn't matter a whole lot except for the relationship with his landlady. Fun snow storm reading. ( )

Lennox is an ex-Canadian soldier who has ended up in Glasgow after the second World War. He's now a private eye and often does rather shady work for the criminal element in Glasgow.
In this story, he's looking into two mysteries--one, a missing young man who may have been involved in some shady dealings. The other job is looking into what looks like intimidation of a fighter one of the "kings" of Glasgow's underworld has an interest in.
This is a well-written, atmospheric story with a great sense of time and place.
It is also extremely well narrated. ( )

The Long Glasgow Kiss by Craig Russell is the second book featuring P.I. Lennox, a Canadian that didn’t leave when the war was over, instead he set up shop in Glasgow and runs a fine line in his investigations between staying on the side of the law or drifting into shady areas. 1950’s Glasgow is pictured as a rather seedy and dark place, run by the Three Kings of Crime with whom Lennox often has to both work for and balance between. Lennox is a tough guy, with a smart mouth that more often than not lands him in trouble.

As much as I enjoy the twist and turns of the plot, I did find this one ran a little long and took too much time for it to come together. Then at the end when all the pieces were finally meshing, it felt rushed, as if the author simply wanted to finish and get on to something else. However, I did thoroughly enjoy the glimpses we are given of Glasgow in the fifties, still feeling the affect and deprivations of the war.


Into this story of boxing and missing persons, the author also manages a storyline about how heroin is finding it’s way westward to America, implying that this is the beginning of an international market being developed for these drugs. Like Glasgow and Lennox itself these books are sharp and tough and I am hoping the author is able to pull all the ingredients together and vault this series up into the ranks of other great tartan-noir series by the likes of Rankin and McBride.

P.I. Lennox, Canadian stayed in Glasgow after WW2. Sometimes works for criminals. Exciting read. ( )

This is the second of the books featuring PI Lennox, which is set in 1950's Glasgow. As those who have read the first book will know,the central character is a tough guy in a tough city. In many ways he is akin to Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe. (Hard in many ways,but with a soft centre) The underworld of Glasgow is controlled by 'The Three King's',who are three very different but equally hard men. Lennox on occasion does work for one or other of these crime bosses,as well as more legit jobs too. One of these jobs is to find the brother of an up and coming female singer and soon the legal work gets entangled with the more dodgy sort. As usual our friend Lennox takes on rather more than he can easily deal with and finds himself in trouble with both the police and with various low-life too.
A good swift-moving thriller which will please most readers and only annoy the Glasgow Tourist Board. ( )
