The Quiet Death of Thomas Quaid Summary

The Quiet Death of Thomas Quaid: Lennox 5 by Craig Russell

'Storytelling at its very best!' Michael Connelly

When you have as few friends as private investigator Lennox does, you can't afford to lose any. When you do, someone has to pay. Fast-paced Glasgow noir for fans of Philip Kerr and Raymond Chandler.

Quiet Tommy Quaid is one of Lennox's few friends in Glasgow. Lennox appreciates Tommy's open, straightforward personality - even if he is a master thief.

When Tommy is flung to his death from a factory roof in front of Lennox's eyes, Lennox discovers just how wrong he was about Tommy's quiet life.

It seems Tommy knew a secret, and it cost him his life. But for once, Quiet Tommy didn't go quietly. His secret concerned people above the law - people in some cases who are the law - and so now, from beyond the grave, he leaves a trail for Lennox to follow to ensure justice is done. For once, Lennox is on the side of the angels. But he is an avenging angel, and in brutal Glasgow, justice has to get bloody.

The Quiet Death of Thomas Quaid Reviews

Vivid and compelling, with a dark sense of place, even darker characters, and deliciously noir humour. Craig Russell is a great writer at the top of his game - Peter James

Craig Russell brilliantly uses the character of his tough, funny and hopeful man Lennox to give us the eyes and ears on a time and place . . . storytelling at its very best! - Michael Connelly

The kind of thriller-writing that made me want to be a writer in the first place - Christopher Brookmyre

Russell's 1950s Glasgow is dank, murky and excellently realised . . . as sharp as an upper cut without being overly contrived - The Scotsman

Lennox is a private eye for the ages - tough, uncompromising and insightful . . Russell has brilliantly captured post-war Glasgow - Michael Rowbotham

Russell remains one of the more intelligent and sophisticated proponents of the genre - Herald
