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

Synopsis

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.

Reviews

From 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.
Publishing News

'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.'
Liverpool Echo

'How many other novelists are there out there whose work would be as enjoyable as this?'

About the Author

Campbell Armstrong
Campbell Armstrong was born in Glasgow in 1944 and educated at Sussex University where he obtained a BA degree. Three years after his first novel was published in 1968, he moved to the United States, where he taught creative writing. He lived there for twenty years with his wife and children, and produced twenty novels before moving to Ireland in 1991. He has been in the front rank of modern thriller writers for many years, and his bestselling novels include the highly acclaimed Jig series. His recent heartbreaking memoir, ‘All That Really Matters’, was also a remarkable success, particularly in Scotland and Ireland, where it was a No 1 bestseller. Following the international success of ‘Jig’ (1987), many of his books, including ‘Brainfire’ and ‘Asterisk’, are once again available in the United Kingdom.
