Summary

Unfinished Business was an idea conceived between Paul Ferris and writing partner Reg McKay. When Reg passed away in 2009, Paul got on with his life. A film The Wee Man was based on one of his books and released in 2013.

Three years later, a new alliance was formed between Paul and true crime writers Stuart Wheatman and Steve Wraith, and the idea was reimagined. Paul wanted to pay tribute to Reg while revisiting the notion that he still had things he wanted to say. The book evolved.

In his most revealing book to date, Ferris finishes the journey he and Reg embarked upon. With his life of crime now behind him, he revisits key moments in his criminal career and replays them through philosophical eyes. He calls time on the gangster image, dispelling the myths surrounding organised crime in his city, and lifts the lid on his affiliation with Arthur Thompson - the so-called Godfather of Glasgow.

Paul strips away what we think we know, unveiling truths, exposing lies and reaffirming the police corruption that still exists today. Will he ever escape the big shadow he cast as the wee man? Is business ever truly finished?

the dullest

literally the most mind numbing monotone load of bilge I've had the misfortune of listening to.

there should be some kind of vetting process that prevents audiobooks this bad being available for sale.

Is business finished

First book I read was Paul’s first book which in my opinion is by far the best however this book is different it’s more of a factual book given the powder to the smoking gun. Some of the content has already been covered however it has to be recovered for potential of first time readers. His tribute to Reg was fitting and it comes across that Paul held this guy in high regard. Decent read

Worst narration book ruined

I’ve listened to other Paul Ferris/Reg McKay books and enjoyed them but this book is shite, it’s a homosexual sounding Scottish guy trying to talk like someone from the scheme and it just doesn’t work.

Great read.

Great read from start to finish. A personal account of a life lived and a fantastic tribute to Reg Mackay.

couldn't stop...

I wanna know what happened next all the time, I don't have much time to read so I put in my headphones and really take it in. I've hearing about how Paul has turned his life around but I'm also ragin for the injustice he encountered yet overcame.
I hope these come as films ir documentaries soon!

absolutely brilliant

i got to chapter 3 and was wanting to turn it off and forget about it as I couldn't get to grips that the narrator wasent glaswegian but when you understand its someone else telling the story and not paul the book is absolutely brilliant. I would advise anyone that was thinking the same as me to just continue with it and you'll really enjoy it.

Very dull.

I assume the writer/s were paid by the word? It certainly seems that way. It's certainly the dullest crime book I've ever tried to listen to. I managed about three and a half chapters. Awful.
