    1. "Lennox" é o primeiro livro de uma série que promete, aos amantes de policiais, momentos de leitura emocionantes, na companhia do talento excepcional de Craig Russell. Nas palavras de Michael Connelly (cujo livro "Lua Vazia" recomendo) "Lennox" é "mais do que um policial, uma história genial."Este escritor do noir rendeu-me ao seu estilo narrativo directo e cruel desde a primeira página. A realidade é retratada tal como é, seja com um tom terrivelmente sério ou com um tom de humor incriv [...]


    2. Ok…so I was chatting to Graham Smith – whose books, by the way…are bloody awesome– on social media and he asks if I have ever read any of Craig Russell‘s books. I immediately did what any self respecting blogger would do.d checked my kindle…NOPE. Mr Smith proceeds to totally big up this Craig Russell guy…and then suggested I would enjoy the #Lennox series. So yeah…I downloaded book 1. I was easily persuaded….OH-MY-FRIGGIN-GOD #bookjunkies! Where the hell have I been!? This book [...]


    3. A cracking start to a potentially great series and a book which further compounds my disbelief that Russell is so underated in the crime genre as his Jan Fabel series is compelling reading! Anyway, I digress, `Lennox' does for 50`s Glasgow what Arnott did for 60`s London with the same assortment of dodgy gangsters, bent coppers and the wonderfully seedy underbelly of post war society. I think what sets this apart is not only the brilliant re-creation of the period but the strength of the charact [...]


    4. This is the hardcover published by Quercus from the UK published in 2009, a first edition. I'm a bit confused where the title listing came from as the words "A Man for Hire, But Not for Sale" is nowhere to be found on the book or on the copyright page.


    5. An excellent start to a crime noir series that puts the hard in boiled. Wonderful characters throughout with a great evocation of Fifties Glasgow.Highly recommended.😁


    6. I've heard of Craig Russell and his books before and wanted to try them for a long time. I finally picked up a copy of Lennox and here it goes :Glasgow, 1950's. The city is a very difficult place to live given the gang wars, drugs, prostitution and of course the difficult lifestyle of it's people and our man Lennox makes his living as a shady private eye, working cases for The Three Kings, rulers of Glasgow underground. One evening, he's approached by Tam McGahern as his twin brother Frankie to [...]


    7. Time taken to read - 2 daysPages - 425Publisher - QuercusBlurb from Glasgow, 1953: the war may be over but the battle for the streets is just beginning. Three crime bosses control the murky streets, but a small-scale con is trying to invade their territory. The balance is shifting. Lennox, a hard man in a hard city at a hard time, finds himself caught in the middle - a dangerous place to be.One night, a body is discovered on the road, his head mashed to pulp, and Lennox is in the frame for murde [...]


    8. Former Scottish policeman Craig Russell has made his literary name (and won several awards) penning crime fiction centred on Hamburg detective Jan Fabel; mythology-drenched murder stories set in contemporary Germany. But with his latest book, Lennox, the first of a planned series of neo-noir novels, he ‘returns home’ – and also heads back in time. After surviving an awful war which stained his soul, Canadian ex-soldier Lennox now operates as a private eye and ‘fixer’ in a battlefield e [...]


    9. Primera entrega de este personaje de Graig Russell. La ambientación en la oscura Escocia de los 50 es brillante y estremecedora, un campo de juego agreste y duro donde los que no tienen agallas para ello lo pagarán caro. Entre ellos se mueve Lennox con gallardía y obstinación parejas, en un reflejo deformado del hardboiled del otro lado del charco. Hay momentos brillantes, pero no siempre de continuo; hay momentos en los que Lennoxx se rie del mundo, pero luego se lo toma todo demasiado en s [...]


    10. Finally, a Scottish writer who follows the detective fiction tradition of Chandler and MacDonald with a noiresque world view. Harkening back to the rough and tumble world of 1950's gangland Glasgow Russell fills the night with tough guys whipping out both guns and one-liners. A must read for those fans of detective fiction who feared all was lost to the glitz of forensics and trial procedurals. Wish I had written this one. Loved by the hardened readers at Monday Night Murders. I will be reading [...]


    11. Despues de un comienzo poco prometedor, en el que se repite hasta la saciedad que los hombres de Glasgow son bajitos y desnutridos. Russell empieza a desgranar una historia s��rdida, en la que estan implicados los bajos (!) fondos de Glasgow. El protagonista es antag��nico del famoso Bernie Gunther De las novelas de Philip Kerr. No tiene nada de buena persona y su humor esta lejos de la ironia de Bernie.Final trepidante y que deja, y eso me sorprendio, un buen regusto de boca.


    12. Taut neo-noir thriller read by Grant O'Rourke. The scene is 1953 ganglandc/iplayer/episode/Talked-up toughness of the blurb far outstripped the actuality.2.5*


    13. Bueno, no. Buenísimo! Me he tragado 200 páginas en un día porque no podía parar. Increíble, no tengo adjetivos!!



    14. No saben las grandes expectativas que le tenía a este libro :( ya había leído algo del autor hace unos años y como me había gustado tanto, pensé que éste no sería una excepción, pero es bastante diferente de lo que pensé y no es que sea una completa porquería, porque tiene cosas rescatables, pero al menos a mi me quedó a deber un poco. Se agradece un poco que no sea tan largo, pero a mi me pasó que ciertos momentos me aburrían, creo que sobran y sólo entorpecen la historia, porque [...]


    15. A brilliant book with characters who leap from the page at every turn. One of the most entertaining books I have read in ages.

    17. Lennox wisecracks almost non stop but while it's not always funny some of it is precious and Craig himself does a star turn building atmosphere that is quite worthy of a noir classic. He has a knack for weaving in street lingo that was current Glaswegian talk in the time frame he talks about, as well as an affectionate contempt for the foibles of the folks here that's dead on true even today. I love the grunge of Glasgow, and the music scene there is quite inimitable but I can completely relat [...]


    18. Craig Russell is best known for his series of novels featuring Hamburg based detective Jan Fabel, but LENNOX is (it is reported) the first in a series of neo-noir styled novels, this one set in Glasgow, post World War II. Lennox is a Canadian ex-soldier who bears the psychological and physical scars of a brutal war, left with a skill set that makes him an ideal player in post-war, corrupt, grimy, dirty, mucky, violent Glasgow. Organised crime is establishing itself and at the centre of machinati [...]



    19. “Lennox” is a wonderful noir, with every classic element present and a clear love for the genre by the author. You can easily tell Craig Russell enjoyed writing “Lennox” and had fun and we as the reader share his enthusiasm. This is the classic hard-boiled story, a private detective with a chip on his shoulder, cynic and bitter with life but with a good heart deep down and his own set of moral rules he lives by. Ultimately Russell's strict adherence to the genre's tropes is also the book [...]


    20. 1953: Der Kanadier Lennox arbeitet als Privatdetektiv im Glasgow der Nachkriegsjahre größtenteils für die drei örtlichen Gangsterbosse. Als der aufstrebende Rivale Tam McGahern ermordet wird, beauftragt ihn dessen Bruder Frankie, den Mord aufzuklären. Doch Lennox lehnt ab. Kurze Zeit später ist Frankie ebenfalls tot und der Verdacht fällt auf Lennox. Obwohl er sich aus den Fängen der Polizei erst einmal befreien kann, läßt Lennox die Geschichte nicht ruhen. Unter Druck der drei Gangste [...]


    21. Oh wow. This book was written for me. I would actually give six stars, this book deserves such clichés.Set in grimy post-war gangland Glasgow we find a cheery, dapper Canadian war veteran, who got off the boat in Glasgow and didn't get the next one home. A mixture of Jim Rockford and Steve McGarrett who have been transported to Scotland in an attempt to avoid getting slugged from behind as often (sadly failed). The beauty of taking a step back in time is the exemption from modern convention of [...]


    22. Murder & mayhembut with a touch of class! I defy you not love Lennox, the character (in a macho way of course). At the risk of appearing sexist, this is a man's book; a boy's own, rough, tough and ' in you face ' tale, with gangsters, minders, guns, knives, saps and a narrative straight out of a Humphrey Bogart movie, only sharper, cruder and well.Scottish even allowing that Lennox is Canadian, one gangster is Jewish and another a Irish. I'm confusing you, aren't I? Don't worry, it's not tha [...]


    23. Lennox, the titular character, is a tough private eye who doesn't care too much which side of the law he works on (or for) in this noir crime thriller set in 1950s Glasgow. While he might have a handful of legitimate cases, most of his income appears to come from digging up information to help Glasgow's crime kings stay on their lofty perches. The steps Lennox takes to get this information are usually on thin ice, and he spends most of the tale in one kind of a peril or another. The story is tol [...]


    24. This is the fist Craig Russel book that I have read and probably isnt one I would normally have picked up if it wasnt for my dad recomending it to me. At first it was a bit slow and I have to admit I wasnt hooked at first. There were quite a few characters involved and I found myself forgetting who was who. Once things started getting exciting (the last 5 chapters or so) I was hooked and I wanted to read more. The ending wasnt the clearest and I did find myself getting a bit confused about the c [...]


    25. Lennox is a gritty PI tale set in Glasgow not long after the end of the Second World War. Naturally cynical, hardened by the war and tenacious, Lennox is well able to look after himself on the tough streets of the Scottish city, offering services to shady characters, including the three kings, the rival leaders of the main three gangs. Russell tells the tale of Lennox’s attempt to solve the murders of the McGahern twins in a first person voice that is genuinely engaging and brings 1950s Glasgo [...]


    26. Ian Rankin and now Craig Russell. Are there any more scottish writers of quality that I should be aware of? I'm quite partial to good noir storytelling. And this a good example of this. Neo-noir?It's always more difficult to sustain a tale told in the first person narrative, with everything that it implies. And Russell comes off at the end in flying colours.The sense of place, the gloom and the ever-present outfall from a brutal war (WWII) is palpable. All noir settings are there: rapid-fire dia [...]


    27. I only ordered this from the library as I'd read a review of the latest in the series, saw they were set in Glasgow and thought it best to start with book one. It wasn't until I collected the book and read the cover blurb I realised it centred around Glasgow gangsters (not my usual genre) and until I actually started the book that I realised it was set in the early fifties. I think it was the grimy, post war setting, set in the city I live in that made me enjoy this book so much. Yes the plot is [...]
