Legendary Scottish author Irvine Welsh returns with a new Tartan-noir novel The Long Knives.

Justice can be a blunt instrument.

Ritchie Gulliver MP is dead. Left for dead in an empty Leith warehouse. Vicious, racist and corrupt, many thought he had it coming. But nobody could have predicted this.

After the life Gulliver has led, the suspects are many: corporate rivals, political opponents, the countless groups he’s offended. And the vulnerable and marginalised, who bore the brunt of his cruelty – those without a voice, without a choice, without a chance.

As Detective Ray Lennox unravels the truth, and the list of brutal attacks grows, he must put his personal feelings aside. But one question refuses to go away. Who are the real victims here? We are tremendously lucky that Irvine Welsh can visit us this summer; as he rounds off what will be a wonderfully busy and entertaining August.
