Recensioner i media
1970s Glasgow hewn from flesh and drawn in blood -- PETER MAY Bloody and brilliant. This smasher from Alan Parks is a reminder of how dark Glasgow used to be -- LOUISE WELSH An old-school cop novel written with wit and economy . . . Think McIlvanney or Get Carter -- IAN RANKIN The latest star of Tartan noir - perhaps even a successor to the late, great William McIlvanney . . . Gripping, utterly authentic and nerve-jangling, this novel announces a fine new voice in crime writing * * Daily Mail * * A potent tale of death . . . Alan Parks's excellent first novel propels him into the top class of Scottish noir authors . . . Detective Harry McCoy . . . is so noir that he makes most other Scottish cops seem light grey * * The Times, Book of the Month * * [McCoy] is a great character and his patch and period are vividly and skilfully portrayed. Denise Mina and Ian Rankin had better watch out * * Evening Standard * * Gripping and violent, dark and satisfying. I flew through it -- BRET EASTON ELLIS Seriously good. It's brilliantly evocative of the 1970s in Glasgow (and I should know as I was there!). I loved Alan Parks' characters and I want to read a lot more of Detective Harry McCoy! -- ALEX GRAY A thrilling debut from a very promising talent -- RAGNAR JONASSON A blistering plot, unforgettable characters and writing so sharp it's like it's been written with a knife . . . Detective McCoy is a true noir antihero and the perfect guide through the vice and violence of Glasgow's underbelly. Bloody January firmly sets Alan Parks in the same league as Ian Rankin and Louise Welsh -- SARAH PINBOROUGH, bestselling author of BEHIND HER EYES
