'Tough, uncompromising and insightful . . . Russell has brilliantly captured post-war Glasgow and the vulnerability of those left to pick up the pieces' Michael Robotham 'A crime story that transcends the genre. . .This is storytelling at its very best!' Michael Connelly Human remains are dredged up from the Clyde. They've been sleeping the deep, dark sleep for eighteen years. Suddenly Glasgow's underworld is buzzing with the news that the remains are those of 'Gentleman Joe' Strachan, Glasgow's most ruthless armed robber. When Strachan's daughters hire Lennox to find out who's been sending them cash every year on the anniversary of Strachan's biggest robbery, his instincts tell him the job spells trouble and will throw him back into world of the Three Kings - the crime bosses who run the city. But he takes the job. And soon learns that ignoring his instincts may cost him his life.

After the Empire Exhibition robbery in 1938, the leader of the gang responsible disappeared from the face of the earth. Flash forward 18 years later, and his remains have been dredged up from the bottom of the Clyde. But are they really his? His daughters, Isa and Violet, are not so sure, and they ask Lennox to get to the truth of the matter. Naturally, this will land Lennox in the world of the Three Kings, the gang leaders who divide the city of Glasgow between them. And Lennox had been hoping to steer his private enquiry business to more aboveboard cases…

This was another great book in the series. Lennox continues to be wry and self-reflective, even when he’s surrounded by violence. Of the first three books in the series, this one made me laugh out loud the most at his one-liners and observations. Glasgow in the 1950s continues to be evoked well, and the ending of this book is perfect. I had previously read Dead Men and Broken Hearts (I read series out of order, what can I say), so it will be interesting to re-read it with the knowledge I now have of Lennox, and to see how it follows on from The Deep Dark Sleep.

Fun. I really enjoy the Lennox series and glad to see it's been optioned for TV series. This, I liked better than the first. I did notice an obvious copy-edit oversight that had me doing a double take (pg. 198, the handing over of the envelope with cash was by McNab, not Ferguson. In the moment, very confusing but obviously a name gaffe. Stuff happens :-) ( )

This is the first book from Craig Russell that I have read. I liked his easy style and enjoyed the story being set in Glasgow in the 50's.
A good easy read. ( )
