Two crime-writing legends join forces for the first ever case of DI Laidlaw: the original gritty Glasgow detective who inspired an entire genre.

William McIlvanney’s Laidlaw trilogy changed the face of crime fiction in the 1970s and 1980s, inspiring an entire generation of crime writers including Mark Billingham, Val McDermid, Denise Mina, Chris Brookmyre – and National Crime Reading Month Ambassador, Ian Rankin. When McIlvanney died in 2015, he left half a handwritten manuscript of Laidlaw’s first case, his first new novel in 25 years. Now, Ian Rankin is back to finish what McIlvanney started. In The Dark Remains, the criminal world of 1970s Glasgow, and the relentless quest for truth, are brought to life by these two authors.
