'There are some concepts that are alien to the Glaswegian mind.  Salad.  Dentistry.  Forgiveness.'

Glasgow in the 1950's - not somewhere you'd choose to be unless you were born to it.  Yet Lennox, a private investigator of Canadian descent, finds it oddly congenial.  Lennox is a man balanced between the law and those who break it - a dangerous place where only the toughest and most ruthless survive.

Glasgow bookie and greyhound breeder Jimmy 'Small Change' MacFarlane runs one of the biggest operations at Glasgow's dog-racing track.  When MacFarlane is bludgeoned to death with a bronze statue of Danny Boy, his best racer, Lennox has a solid gold alibi  - he had spent the night with MacFarlane's daughter.
