  • Glasgow grit

    I really enjoyed February’s Son so it was great to catch up on the exploits of Harry McCoy again a few months down the line. Life has moved on both at home and in his private life which definitely added some freshness to his story, he’s less than satisfied at work but still goes through the motions despite being sidelined. I liked the more jaded side of him although he still has that rough Glasgow edge that makes him such a great character. This is an easy read but still leaves you wanting to keep on reading, it has strong characters and I do really love the representation of 1970’s Glasgow life.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • excellent Scottish Noir.

    Bobby March Will Live Forever is the third book in the Harry McCoy series by British author, Alan Parks. Mid-July 1973, and Glasgow swelters through an unusually hot summer, but any personnel at Stewart Street Police Station not departed on vacation have joined the search for missing thirteen-year-old, Alice Kelly. Except for DS Harry McCoy. CI Hector Murray has been seconded to Central for six months and his replacement, Bernie Raeburn, holds a powerful grudge against McCoy: Harry is excluded from this high-profile case and instead assigned a stagnating set of robberies; Harry’s usual right-hand man, Wattie, is forced to attend to Raeburn’s every need. As the only cop not searching, McCoy attends an apparent accidental drug overdose at the Royal Stuart Hotel. Rock star, Bobby March is found with a syringe in his arm. But the medical examiner suspects foul play. And it seems certain of Bobby’s property is missing. Meanwhile, Hector Murray asks McCoy, off the record, to locate his missing fifteen-year-old niece, who has been seen associating with undesirables. Talented McCoy, with his contacts, soon tracks down Laura Murray, but has misgivings about returning her immediately to her family. And while on her trail, he comes across a brutally murdered petty criminal, and learns something about a certain old friend (and local gangland boss) that may upset the delicate balance of power in the local crime scene. McCoy is having to spread himself quite thin… This instalment features a forced confession with tragic consequences, a kidnapping, and child abuse, and McCoy takes a revelatory (but ultimately painful) trip to Belfast. While McCoy may not be the straightest cop on the force, he does have standards and his heart is in the right place, and this leads him to brawl with another senior officer. As with book #2, this one can stand alone, but the earlier books do give some useful background on the characters and their history. Again, the prolific use of expletives may offend some readers, but there’s a bit of black humour in the banter. Portraying Glasgow at its grittiest, this is excellent Scottish Noir.
