An Asian man falls from a balcony. An Indian kindergarten teacher is shot in front of her horrified students. A Nigerian student is knifed. Police Detective Lou Perlman uncovers a white supremacist plot that goes beyond ugly threats and painted swastikas. As he pokes about in Glasgow’s human garbage, he uncovers lost souls, psycho-killers, and Leo Kilroy, the underworld’s grossly overweight emperor of sleaze, who hates Perlman--first, because he’s a Jew and, second, because he’s a cop. Narrator James Bryce creates a Perlman whose voice is gravelly, whose introspection is flawed, and whose heart is pure. Police corruption, extremist racist plots, and Perlman’s secret love for his widowed sister-in-law all mesh in Campbell Armstrong’s masterful mystery, and James Bryce brings every one of Armstrong’s oddball Glaswegians to life.
