THE THIRD IN THE ORIGINAL LAIDLAW TRILOGY
THE DARK REMAINS, Laidlaw's first case, out 2 September 2021. PRE-ORDER NOW!

'The Laidlaw books are not just great crime novels, they are important ones' Mark Billingham
'It's doubtful I would be a crime writer without the influence of McIlvanney's Laidlaw' Ian Rankin

When his brother dies stepping out in front of a car, Jack Laidlaw is determined to find out what really happened. Laidlaw begins an emotional quest through Glasgow's underworld, and into the past. He discovers as much about himself as about the brother he has lost, in a search that leads to a shattering climax.

Acclaimed for its corrosive wit, dark themes and original maverick detective, the Laidlaw trilogy has earned the status of classic crime fiction.
