Lennox liked Quiet Tommy Quaid. Perhaps it's odd for a private detective to like - even admire - a career thief, but Quiet Tommy Quaid was the sort of man everyone liked. Amiable, easy-going, well-dressed, with no vices to speak of - well, aside from his excessive drinking and womanising, but then in 1950s Glasgow those are practically virtues. And besides, throughout his many exploits outside the law, Quiet Tommy never once used violence. It was rumoured to be the police who gave him his nickname - because whenever they caught him, which was not often, he always came quietly. Above all, the reason people liked Tommy was that he you knew exactly what you were dealing with. Here, everybody realised, was someone who was exactly, simply and totally who and what he seemed to be. But when Tommy turns up dead, Lennox and the rest of Glasgow will find out just how wrong they were.… (mere)

The death of Thomas Quaid in this book is not a surprise, given that it’s in the title. Nevertheless, I felt this a bit predictable in that I could tell something was off about the so-called deal that Lennox was being asked to get him involved in. It felt like a horror movie where you’re yelling at the characters to not go in the basement, but at the same time, without this event the story wouldn’t have happened, so I had to roll with it. Then I found it oddly heartwarming how Lennox assembled a ragtag team of criminals and gangsters to avenge Thomas. As is to be expected from a Lennox book, there’s a good blend of humour, violence, and pensiveness. There are literal and figurative gut punches, and the novel ties up the loose ends in a way that also ends the series at a good point. ( )
