Jack Laidlaw Trilogy #1

Winner of The CWA Silver Dagger.

Meet Jack Laidlaw, the original damaged detective.

When a young woman is found brutally murdered in Kelvingrove Park, only Laidlaw stands a chance of finding her murderer from among the hard men, gangland villains and self-made moneymen who lurk in the city's shadows.

"This isn't a crime writer who decided to get 'all literary'. McIlvanney is a deeply authentic Scottish (Glasgow) writer . . ." - Goodreads Review.

" . . . a down-to-earth quality, an unflinching eye on the social context of crime, a focus on the bleakly, blackly comic side of life and death . . ." - The Guardian.

"A bloody good read" - Val McDermid.
