Welsh''s sizzling new novel is a thrilling journey into the bright glamour of the Sunshine State and a seething underworld of utter darkness, in this shocking story about the corruption and abuse of the human soul and the possibilities of redemption.
From the Publisher:
Suffering a mental breakdown in the wake of a devastating child-murder case, Detective Inspector Ray Lennox of the Edinburgh PD takes a recuperative vacation in Miami, where he struggles with addiction and gnawing suspicions about a ten-year-old girl.
Riffing on crime genre fiction, Irvine Welsh details the escapades of depressive Edinburgh detective Ray Lennox in CRIME, his sixth novel since his breakthrough debut, TRAINSPOTTING. Lennox's Florida holiday with his fiancée quickly turns sour, and the alcoholic finds himself drowning his sorrows with some shady company. Lennox is tormented by a recent child rapist case he worked, so when he sees 10-year-old Tianna being mistreated, he goes on the lam with her. He wants to rescue her from the "nonces" swarming around her, but his own demons might be more than Lennox can handle.


"Welsh is trying something different, something gentler and brighter in the end....readers will stay for the ride, held by a narrative that switches skillfully between the darkness of crimes past and present, and by a character who longs for a better place for his rage to go." - Richard Rayner 09/19/2008

"Welsh's writing in CRIME...[is] always fluent, often funny....[The book] is full of adventure and a straightforward pleasure to read..." - Michael Wood 05/14/2009
