  1. Good to know the third in the Laidlaw trilogy keeps up the standard, since I still have this one to read. Looking forward to your review.

  2. Perfect choice for your book of the month! And while we`’re on the subject of McIlvanney check out Irene by Pierre Lemaitre for the homage to the godfather of Scottish crime writing!
