The Good Son by Russel McLean, part one
More importantly (since this is my blog...) Russel mentioned me in the acknowledgements at the back of the book. Not sure what I did or said that deserved the shout out** but it's much appreciated.
I sent an email to Craig Ferguson daring him to have Russel over on the show since it is the first Scottish PI novel in the history of the world. Of course, if Ferguson actually invites Russel over to the show, I'll tip over in a dead faint. Still, Ferguson is Scottish as is Mr. McLean and the Scottish are an unpredictable lot - Skittish Scots, we used to call them when I was growing up***.
* Slick meaning the photo is a nice one, very dramatic, eye-catching, not that something was spilled on it or anything.
** As the young people say.
*** Made that part up.
