Publisher's Summary

Glasgow in the 1950s. Private investigator Lennox is keeping a low profile, enjoying a secret fling with the daughter of shady bookie and greyhound breeder MacFarlane. When MacFarlane is found bludgeoned to death, Lennox is a suspect. Luckily, he has a solid gold alibi: he was in bed with the victim's daughter.

Lennox is quickly drawn into hunting the killer. It turns out MacFarlane was into some seriously dodgy stuff. One of Glasgow's notorious Three Kings, crime boss Willie Sneddon, is involved, and he's not a man Lennox wants to cross. But there's an even bigger player lurking in the shadows, and it looks like Lennox is going to get his fingers burnt - badly.

    "Authentic period thriller"

    Even better than " Lennox" with a very good plot and authentic atmosphere for Glasgow in the fifties. I grew up there in the late fifties and it feels just about right. Looking forward to the promised third book in the series.

    "excellent"

    A fantastic story once again from this author. kept the interest throughout with many twists and turns. The narrator does a brilliant job with capturing the accents some very challenging like Scots- Polish. The story has some good funny moments fir what is generally a serious subject. well done all concerned.

    "What a find!"

    I was initially drawn to this title due to its being a deal of the day, and being narrated by Sean Barrett, who is simply brilliant.

    Very early into the book, I was hooked. The combination of a highly entertaining lead, gritty supporting characters and a great story, made this a winner, for me.

    I will be searching out the other titles in this series very soon.

    "What a great book"
    What made the experience of listening to The Long Glasgow Kiss the most enjoyable?

    I loved the narrator and the delivery. The Scottish accent helped to set the scene and was easily understood. The whole story was just enjoyable and engaging.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lennox was an nteresting and quick witted character.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Barrett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I've not listened toSean before, but I will look out for other performances, he was perfect for this story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It probably was, but I don't like listening all in one go. I like time for the story to absorb me and I love looking forward to hearing the next bit.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, great performance. Thankfully there are more Lennox novels.

    "Hard boiled fiction meets Scottish noir!"

    I really enjoyed this chandleresque style crime story which was superbly narrated by Sean Barrett. Will definitely look for more by Russell.
