White Rage Summary


White Rage by Campbell Armstrong

Detective Lou Perlman returns to Glasgow's dark underbelly in the atmospheric new crime thriller from the acclaimed author of The Bad Fire and The Last Darkness. When a young Asian entrepreneur dies in a suspicious fall from his high-rise apartment and an Indian kindergarten teacher is gunned down in front of her class it's clear to Detective Sergeant Lou Perlman that he is dealing with racially motivated murder. The emergence of a group called White Rage and a growing sense of fear across the city of Glasgow mean that Perlman needs some answers quickly. At the same time, he needs to make sense of a crime that is closer to home -- the mysterious shooting of his own brother Colin. Lou's conviction that the killing is connected to the underworld boss Leo Kilroy nags at his mind almost as much as his unspoken love for Colin's widow Miriam. And when Lou Perlman looks beneath the glittering new surface of the city in which he was born, he finds all sorts of ancient connections, some of them painful, some of them shocking, many of them disturbing.

White Rage Reviews


From the reviews of The Last Darkness: 'Riveting ... The Last Darkness is so atmospheric you really do lose your sense of time and place as you delve deeper into Perlman's world. The dialogue and tension are superbly crafted, and Perlman is a believable, well-rounded character. A terrific read.' Publishing News 'Campbell Armstrong's Perlman feels like a three-dimensional human being, sore feet and all ... There's a Columbo-meets-Rebus feel about him.' Glasgow Sunday Herald 'Atmospheric and gripping, this tale of deceit, corruption and greed is hard to put down as Armstrong returns with the shabbily charismatic and irrepressible Perlman.' Aberdeen Evening Express 'What a find this is. A tough, uncompromising look at society's underbelly.' Liverpool Echo 'How many other novelists are there out there whose work would be as enjoyable as this?' Crime Time
