Publisher's Summary

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

Would you consider the audio edition of Lennox to be better than the print version?

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.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

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.


What about Seán Barrett’s performance did you like?

Sean Barrett is absolutely amazing..one of my favourite readers. He captured the many "classes" of Glasgow accents superbly.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This is not a moving book so this is a strange question. It is gritty, tough and violent,but not moving.


Any additional comments?

Would love an audio version of The Long Glasgow Kiss, the sequel to Lennox.

Glasgow noir.

This was a well told story set in the grim, grey, post-WW II city of Glasgow.
Lennox, as a P.I. dealing very much with the shady element of the city, is very world-weary and war-damaged. He really doesn't like the person he's become.
The story starts out with a straight-forward murder, followed by a second murder that Lennox is framed for.
He sets out to discover who did the murders and in the seach, reveals the underbelly of Glasgow.
This was a fast-paced story with a lot of twists to the plot.
