The #1 Sunday Times bestseller is back with a powerful, riveting new novel, as maverick investigator Ray Lennox discovers that confronting his past could cost him everything.


OLD TRUTHS HAVE NEW CONSEQUENCES

Ray Lennox is determined to move on from his darkest days. The former detective has left Edinburgh for a fresh start in Brighton. Soon, his fixations and addictions have been replaced with quiet evenings and a rigorous fitness regime.

Then Lennox meets Mathew Cardingworth. Rich, smooth-talking and immaculately dressed, he presents himself as a successful, and respectable, property developer. Yet their encounter reawakens memories that have haunted Lennox for decades, sending him into a spiral of confusion and rage.

Lennox has no choice – he must confront the events of his childhood. But the more he identifies the links between Cardingworth, the disappearance of a group of foster care boys and the violence of his past, the more he finds himself asking:

What will he sacrifice to achieve resolution at last?

About the Author

Irvine Welsh

Irvin Welsh is a Scottish novelist, playwright and short story writer. His novel Trainspotting was made into a film of the same name. His work is characterised by a raw Scots dialect and brutal depiction of Edinburgh life. He has also written plays and screenplays, and directed several short films.


Welsh's tenth novel, released in April 2016, is titled The Blade Artist, and centres around a seemingly rehabilitated Trainspotting character Francis Begbie now living in California with a wife and children. It was shortlisted for the Fiction Book of the Year at the Saltire Literary Awards 2016.


A sequel to The Blade Artist, entitled Dead Men's Trousers, was released on 29 March 2018, and sees fellow Transporting characters Mark Renton, Sick Boy and Spud reuniting with Francis Begbie.
