Lou Periman is back in this disturbing Glaswegian crime thriller. Racially motivated killings and the loss of his brother to a gang land shooting all make for a satisfying complex suspenseful read
White Rage by Campbell Armstrong
When a young Asian entrepreneur dies in a suspicious fall from his high-rise apartment and an Indian kindergarten teacher is gunned down in front of her class it’s clear to Detective Sergeant Lou Perlman that he is dealing with racially motivated murder.
The emergence of a group called White Rage and a growing sense of fear across the city of Glasgow mean that Perlman needs some answers quickly.
At the same time, he needs to make sense of a crime that is closer to home – the mysterious shooting of his own brother Colin. Lou’s conviction that the killing is connected to the underworld boss Leo Kilroy nags at his mind almost as much as his unspoken love for Colin’s widow Miriam.
And when Lou Perlman looks beneath the glittering new surface of the city in which he was born, he finds all sorts of ancient connections, some of them painful, some of them shocking, many of them disturbing.
ReviewsFrom the reviews of The Last Darkness: 'Riveting ... The Last Darkness is so atmospheric you really do lose your sense of time and place as you delve deeper into Perlman's world. The dialogue and tension are superbly crafted, and Perlman is a believable, well-rounded character. A terrific read.
'Campbell Armstrong's Perlman feels like a three-dimensional human being, sore feet and all ... There's a Columbo-meets-Rebus feel about him.'
Glasgow Sunday Herald
'Atmospheric and gripping, this tale of deceit, corruption and greed is hard to put down as Armstrong returns with the shabbily charismatic and irrepressible Perlman.'
Aberdeen Evening Express
'What a find this is. A tough, uncompromising look at society's underbelly.'
'How many other novelists are there out there whose work would be as enjoyable as this?'
