Jack Laidlaw returns in the groundbreaking series. "The Laidlaw books are like fine malt whiskey-the pure distilled essence of Scottish crime writing" (Peter May, international bestselling author).

In this second book in his monumental Laidlaw series, McIlvanney tells the tale of Eck Adamson, an alcoholic vagrant who 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 down a seam of corruption that runs through all levels of Glaswegian society.

"Excellent . . . McIlvanney, the undisputed grandfather of tartan noir, gives reader a complex, existential hero struggling to right myriad wrongs."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The good news is that Laidlaw is back."-The Observer

Praise for William McIlvanney and the Laidlaw series

"A crime trilogy so searing it will burn forever into your memory. McIlvanney is the original Scottish criminal mastermind."-Christopher Brookmyre, international bestselling author

"Fastest, first and best, Laidlaw is the melancholy heir to Marlowe. Reads like a breathless scalpel cut through the bloody heart of a city."-Denise Mina, award-winning author of Conviction

"Compelling . . . McIlvanney lays bare the soul of Glasgow, capturing every nuance of its many voices."-Alex Gray, author of the DCI Lorimer novels

"Laidlaw is an enduring hero with the dry wit and insight to make other literary detectives seem two-dimensional. McIlvanney is the razor king of Scottish crime writing."-Gordon Ferris, author of the Douglas Brodie Investigations
