‘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
Investigator Lennox just can’t stay out of trouble.
Lennox is looking for legitimate cases – anything’s better than working for the Three Kings, the crime bosses who run Glasgow’s underworld. So when a woman comes into his office and hires him to follow her husband, it seems the perfect case.
And, unusually for Lennox, it’s legal.
But this isn’t a simple case of marital infidelity. When the people he’s following start to track him, once more Lennox must draw on the violent, war-damaged part of his personality as he follows this trail of dead men and broken hearts.
The fourth in a unique and memorable crime series, Dead Men and Broken Hearts is gritty, fast-paced, mordantly funny and totally compelling. 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
