9780099506980: Crime

Detective Inspector Ray Lennox has fled to Miami to escape the aftermath of a mental breakdown induced by occupational stress and cocaine abuse, and a harrowing child-sex murder case back in Edinburgh. But his fiancée Trudi is only interested in planning their wedding, and soon Lennox cast adrift, alone in Florida. A coke-fuelled binge brings him into contact with another victim of sexual predation, ten-year-old Tianna, and Lennox flees across the state with his terrified charge, determined to protect her at any cost. But can Lennox trust his own instincts? And can he handle Tianna, while still trying to get to grips with the Edinburgh murder?

Review:

"A triumph... A great, redemptive book... It leaves you wanting more, much more" ( Observer)

"Powerful, passionate writing... Welsh gets it just right" ( Literary Review)

"Powerful... A bracing and engaging read" ( Daily Telegraph)

" Crime is by some distance Welsh's most restrained and thoughtful work" ( The Times)

"You never know what you're going to get with Irvine Welsh, other than guaranteed intelligence. But what you get here is a triumph. A brave take on paedophile rings and the minds, fast and slow, behind them... There are echoes of rebus, of Christopher Brookmyre, even of Carl Hiaasen... There's only one Welsh and you should be reading him again" ( Observer)

Review:

`A good, old-fashioned cop drama... written with the pace and drive of a much-younger Welsh'
