Legendary Scottish author Irvine Welsh returns with a new Tartan-noir
novel _The Long Knives_.
Justice can be a blunt instrument.
Ritchie Gulliver MP is dead. Left for dead in an empty Leith
warehouse. Vicious, racist and corrupt, many thought he had it coming.
But nobody could have predicted this.
After the life Gulliver has led, the suspects are many: corporate
rivals, political opponents, the countless groups he’s offended. And
the vulnerable and marginalised, who bore the brunt of his cruelty –
those without a voice, without a choice, without a chance.
As Detective Ray Lennox unravels the truth, and the list of brutal
attacks grows, he must put his personal feelings aside. But one
question refuses to go away. Who are the real victims here? We are
tremendously lucky that Irvine Welsh can visit us this summer; as he
rounds off what will be a wonderfully busy and entertaining August.
