"James Machie was a man with a genius for violence, his criminal empire spreading beyond Glasgow into the UK and mainland Europe. Fortunately, James Machie is dead, assassinated in the back of a prison ambulance following his trial and conviction. But now, five years later, he is apparently back from the grave, set on avenging himself on those who brought him down. Top of his list is his previous associate, Frank MacDougall, who unbeknownst to D.C.I. Jim Daley, is living under protection on his lochside patch, the small Scottish town of Kinloch. Daley knows that, having been the key to Machies conviction, his old friend and colleague D.S. Scott is almost as big a target. And nothing, not even death, has ever stood in James Machies way" --

Quite good detective story, lots of action and suspense. The slang may be a bit off putting for some people, but for anyone from or with connections to Scotland it's great! NOT set in Glasgow, by the way, but a small town on the west coast; it has a ficticious name, but it's Campbeltown, Argyll.

Gritty police procedural set in Glasgow. This will be enjoyed by readers of Ian Rankin.
