Narrator Brian Cox delivers a magnificent performance, captivating listeners with this well-crafted, gritty Scottish detective prequel from authors Ian Rankin and the late William McIlvanney. Cox transports the listener to the underworld of 1970s Glasgow, where the story follows newly assigned DC Jack Laidlaw as he navigates the Glasgow Crime Squad. Cox quickly sets the tone and creates palpable tension as Laidlaw, a bookish detective on the hunt for the killer of lawyer Bobby Carter. Cox provides distinctive voices for a variety of characters, expertly embodying the storytelling style, banter, and rich atmosphere of Scotland. Jam-packed with corruption, organized crime, and a final twist, this taut police procedural will leave the listener wanting more. M.M.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
