9781848091870: Loss

Gus Dury is a changed man. He is off the Edinburgh streets and back with estranged wife, Debs. He has promised her that he won't get involved in any more dodgy cases which the police can't or won't solve. And above all, he's off the drink. In his pocket at all times is a half bottle of scotch, but although the label is worn to shreds, he has never so much as loosened the cap.Then his brother Michael is found dead with a bullet in his heart and Gus' life begins to unravel all over again. How can he keep the promises he has made and still avenge his brother's murder?Loss, Tony Black's third novel about washed-up hack turned private investigator Gus Dury, is absolutely gripping – a labyrinth of violence, secrets and emotion. A true rollercoaster of a read.

About the Author:

Tony Black is the author of 12 books, most recently The Last Tiger. The Tasmanian-set novel tells the story of the demise of the Tasmanian tiger. Whitbread-winning author Paul Sayer called the novel, "A rare and heartfelt fable". Barry Graham, Winner of the American Library Association book of the year, said The Last Tiger is "Tony Black's most brilliant and resonant novel so far". Tony Black has also written three crime fiction series, a number of crime novellas and a collection of short stories. His next crime title is Artefacts of the Dead.

Review:

"Tony Black is my favourite British crime writer and Gus Dury the genre's most interesting protagonist. Like his previous books, Loss has the power, style and street swagger that makes most of his contemporaries a little bland by comparison" (Irvine Welsh)
"Powerful, focused and intense ... and then it gets better. Get your money down early on this young man - he's dead serious and deadly accurate" (Andrew Vachss)

"Ripping, gutsy prose and a witty wreck of a protagonist makes this exceptionally compelling, bright and even original." (The Mirror)

"If you're a fan of the Ian Rankins, Denise Minas and Irvine Welshes of this world, this is most certainly one for you." (Scotsman)

"As washed-up private detectives go, Gus Dury is compelling - he's as hard as any criminal, as twice as self-destructive." (Evening Standard)

"Every flaw is stripped of shadow and every bad deed gets punished. If I read a better example of the police procedural this year I will be amazed." (Crimesquad)

"This up-and-coming crime writer isn't portraying the Edinburgh in the Visit Scotland tourism ads." (The Sun)
