It turns out MacFarlane was into some seriously dodgy stuff. One of Glasgow's notorious Three Kings, crime boss Willie Sneddon, is involved and he's not a man Lennox wants to cross. But there's an even bigger player out there, an elusive villain who makes the Three Kings look like minnows. Lennox is going to get his fingers burnt, badly. Lennox is an ex-Canadian soldier who has ended up in Glasgow after the second World War.
He's now a private eye and often does rather shady work for the criminal element in Glasgow. In this story, he Don't have a Kindle?

Its a seedy atmosphere with even seedier characters and a bit of action between the investigation. The book does feel a bit too long and, maybe as a result, the ending seemed a bit rushed and fell somewhat flat. Its like Russell just had to wrap things up quickly. The author had to resort to the bad guy holding a gun and explaining the whole plot to our hero, which, like I said before is less than original and even a bit campy.

Unfortunately, after so much trouble, it seemed to whole thing was actually disappointingly simple and the stakes not that high after all. It hurt the overall impact of the book. Still, there are some very funny lines, amusing dialogs, a good sense of pace and a strict following of the genre's tropes.

Its a very entertaining read, and a gem for hard-boiled fiction addicts. Lennox the enquiry agent gets involved in another case for Willie Sneddon, one of the Three Kings, the crime kingpins who control s Glasgow.
Just love the mixture of clever wit and gritty tough guy portrayed by Lennox. The dark smoky and wet Scottish city is a perfect backdrop for this classy noir thriller. Beautiful women,fixed boxing bouts and big 50's cars mix it up with big city gangsters. Lennox has to use all his fast thinking, fast talking and even faster fists to come out on the other side of this one. Lennox runs two cases, one a seemingly simple missing persons enquiry for a beautiful celebrity and the other trying to work out who put the scares on a championship boxer. Not always on the right side of the law, Lennox has to walk a fine line between working for the crime bosses and staying out of the way of Glasgow police who'd like nothing more than beating him to a pulp, locking him up and throwing away the keys.
I came across the Lennox books by accident and immediately had to read all three in the series.
The Long Glasgow Kiss
The character of Lennox is both dark and compassionate. He is interesting and thoroughly likable.

This is the second in the trilogy but it does not matter in which order you read them. For me Craig Russell has written a thoroughly original detective series and I can not wait for more to come. I really enjoy Russell's work.
