It begins with two deaths: a money-man and a grass. Deaths that offer a unique opportunity to a man like Calum MacLean. A man who has finally had enough of killing. Meanwhile two of Glasgow's biggest criminal organisations are at quiet, deadly war with one another. And as Detective Michael Fisher knows, the biggest - and bloodiest - manoeuvres are yet to come . . . The stunning conclusion to Malcolm Mackay's lauded Glasgow trilogy, The Sudden Arrival of Violence will return readers to the city's underworld: a place of dark motives, dangerous allegiances and inescapable violence . . .

Great trilogy, and highly unusual that all three are this good, and the reader doesn't even have to learn to speak Glaswegian!

In this fitting conclusion to his Glasgow trilogy, Mackay has pulled off a rollercoaster ride with the same understated panache that distinguished the first two books. With the open nature of the ending, I only hope Mackay returns to continue this story.
