From the award-winning author of The Glasgow Trilogy comes Every Night I Dream of Hell, a dark and thrilling Glaswegian crime drama. "People are terrified of you. You've given them good reason. We know how valuable that is. " Nate Colgan would be the first to admit that his violent reputation makes him very good at his job-and bad at everything else. After eighteen years spent working on the sidelines of Glasgow's criminal underworld, there's no question he'll accept the central position that Peter Jamieson's organization offers him, despite his better judgment. The organization isn't as strong as it once was: its most powerful members are either dead or behind bars, including Jamieson himself, and the time is ripe for change. Chang begins with an execution-a message for Jamieson's supporters-which promptly sets the various factions within the organization against one another. Colgan's position as "security consultant" means his duty is clear: idneitfy the killer and find out who's willing to seize power, even if it means igniting a war. Meanwhile, on the other side of the law, DI Michael Fisher conduscts his own investigation into the murder. Both men can't help but wonder: Why do these events coincide with the return of Zara Cope, the mother of Colgan's child, a disreputable woman with an uncanny ability to attract trouble and troublemakers' A dark and thrilling crime drama, Every Night I Dream of Hell takes us deep into a world of violence, fear and double-crosses.

Not nearly as good as his previous work. The formula might be getting thin.

Mackay is starting to appeal to me. It seems to be a game of gangster chess with few heroes.

I couldn't get past all the pages of character profiles. and thats the first part of the book. I gave up and returned it...quickly. Happy Reading!

Tough to figure out what's what in the first third of this book, despite the crib notes (4+ pages of character profiles).

I persevered and eventually caught on; the narrator (and his Glawegian crowd) grew on me. Maybe one really needs to have read the first few volumes in the series.

This is definitely noir. Hard core, hard boiled and gritty. Well done in that regard.
