'In a class of his own' Guardian 'Reads like a breathless scalpel through the bloody heart of a great city' Denise Mina Eck Adamson, an alcoholic vagrant, summons Jack Laidlaw to his deathbed.

Acclaimed for its corrosive wit, dark themes and original maverick detective, the Laidlaw trilogy has earned the status of classic crime fiction.
