Glasgow 1953: a hard city at a hard time. The war may be over but the battle for the streets is just beginning, and shady investigator Lennox is the man in the middle.
The McGahern twins were on the way up until Tam, the brains of the outfit, becomes the victim of a vicious contract killing. Tam's brother Frankie turns to Lennox to find out who killed his twin. Lennox refuses. Later that night, Frankie turns up dead, and Lennox finds himself in the frame for murder.
The only way of proving his innocence is to solve the crime - but he'll have to dodge men more deadly than Glasgow's crime bosses before he gets any answers.

Fabulous reader telling a gripping story
Definitely. As a Glaswegian, I relished the accents - each character subtly different - and felt this greatly added to the enjoyment of the tale. Trying to imagine these characters speaking, if reading this book, would be almost impossible. As well, the author's wit is well highlighted in audio.
The description of Glasgow's underworld bosses and how they operated was most interesting but I found the whole book engrossing - everything was interesting to me. It gave a fair description of the Glasgow scene in the 1950s.
Sean Barrett is absolutely amazing..one of my favourite readers. He captured the many "classes" of Glasgow accents superbly.
This is not a moving book so this is a strange question. It is gritty, tough and violent,but not moving.
Would love an audio version of The Long Glasgow Kiss, the sequel to Lennox.
