The Long Knives by Irvine Welsh

The highly-anticipated second instalment in the CRIME trilogy, now a hit TV Series


Justice can be a blunt instrument

“Men like him usually tell the story.
In business.
Politics.
Media.
But not this time: I repeat, he is not writing this story.”

Ritchie Gulliver MP is dead.  Castrated and left to bleed 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?
