The Deep Dark Sleep Summary

The Deep Dark Sleep: A Lennox Thriller by Craig Russell

Human remains are recovered from the bottom of the River Clyde. Tests reveal they've been there for eighteen years. Glasgow's underworld is buzzing with the news that the dredged up bones belong to Gentleman Joe Strachan, the city's most successful and ruthless armed robber. Strachan's daughters, Isa and Violet, want to hire Lennox to find out who has been sending them large sums of cash each year on the anniversary of Strachan's most successful robbery. Despite his reservations, Lennox needs the money and takes the job. But his investigations lead him back into the dark world of the Three Kings - the crime bosses who run the city. He should never have got involved ...Tough, gritty, and as noir as they come, The Deep Dark Sleep guarantees a sleepless night.

The Deep Dark Sleep Reviews

'the Glasgow that Russell conjures up is dark, cold and shabby, but poised on the edge of the more promising 60s. It's seen through the eyes of the classic crime hero outsider, Lennox... [Craig Russell] remains one of the more intelligent and sophisticated proponents of the genre' Glasgow Herald. * Glasgow Herald *
'This series just gets better and better in my eyes - accomplished plotting, great characterisation melded with a perfect balance of grim violence and wise-cracking dialogue' Raven Crime Reads. * Raven Crime Reads *
'Lennox is entertainingly dodgy ... in an engaging caper with a setting made for all manner of elaborate crimes' Sunday Times. * Sunday Times *
'Russell is a truly gifted story teller and this tale of life in post WWII Glasgow is brimming with rich descriptions of larger-than-life characters' Euro Crime. * Euro Crime *
'Russell's 1950s Glasgow is dank, murky and excellently realised. Slick, chilling and excellently written' The Scotsman. * Scotsman *
'Set in 1950's Glasgow, it is tartan noir at its noirest - compelling and dark' Scottish Sunday Herald. * Scottish Sunday Herald *
'Vivid and compelling, with a dark sense of place, even darker characters, and deliciously noir humour' Peter James * Peter James *
