Description


In "Laidlaw, " the first book of the series, we are introduced to Jack Laidlaw, a hard-drinking philosopher-detective whose tough exterior only partly hides a rich humanity and keen intelligence. Laidlaw's investigation into the murder of a young woman brings him into conflict with Glasgow's hard men, gangland villains, and the moneyed thugs who control the city.
Books 2 & 3 in the "Laidlaw" trilogy coming fall 2014.
