A Little-Known Master of Style

Why McIivanney isn't mentioned in the same breath as Hammett and Chandler, I don't know but he is a master of witty, brilliant writing while his knight Laidlaw, like Marlowe, keeps a moral compass in a seamy world: in this case, Glasgow. This is the second book in the series. "Laidlaw" is the first. Some of the sentences are so wonderfully wrought, I have to stop and read them twice. While Laidlaw and his underling search for answers, you'll be glued to the book.
