Publisher's Synopsis

'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.

Praise for award-winning writer Craig Russell:

'Another brilliantly sharp, witty and tough take on a hard city at a hard time . . . a former cop, Russell is Britain's rising crime-writing star' Daily Mirror

'Through his humorous lens, time and place become razor-sharp ...The lightness of touch is a breath of fresh air in this most crowded of genres . . . This is tartan neo-noir at its most entertaining'Sunday Herald
