Om Deep Dark Sleep

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.

'the Glasgow that Russell conjures up is dark, cold and shabby, but poised on the edge of the more promising 60s. It's seen through the eyes of the classic crime hero outsider, Lennox... [Craig Russell] remains one of the more intelligent and sophisticated proponents of the genre' Glasgow Herald. 'Lennox is entertainingly dodgy ... in an engaging caper with a setting made for all manner of elaborate crimes' Sunday Times. 'Russell's 1950s Glasgow is dank, murky and excellently realised. Slick, chilling and excellently written' Scotsman. 'This series just gets better and better in my eyes - accomplished plotting, great characterisation melded with a perfect balance of grim violence and wise-cracking dialogue' Raven Crime Reads. 'Vivid and compelling, with a dark sense of place, even darker characters, and deliciously noir humour' Peter James 'Set in 1950's Glasgow, it is tartan noir at its noirest - compelling and dark' Scottish Sunday Herald. 'Russell is a truly gifted story teller and this tale of life in post WWII Glasgow is brimming with rich descriptions of larger-than-life characters' Euro Crime.
