Publisher's Summary

Eck Adamson, an alcoholic vagrant, summons Jack Laidlaw to his deathbed. Probably the only policeman in Glasgow who would bother to respond, Laidlaw sees in Eck's cryptic last message a clue to the murder of a gangland thug and the disappearance of a student. 

With stubborn integrity, Laidlaw tracks a seam of corruption that runs from the top to the bottom of society.

Mediocre

Strong character (if a bit self absorbed), weak story and, after Laidlaw, missed WMs own narration.

Brilliant crime novel

William McIlvanney was a brilliant writer who wrote novels that are gritty, complex and very witty. This is a superb book and Mark Bonnar's performance is excellent.
