But nobody had ever smashed those elements together into so accomplished a synthesis…McIlvanney harnessed the vigour of vernacular Scots speech and made it sing…Without his books, there might not have been tartan noir.
He kicked the door open so the likes of Ian Rankin, Denise Mina and me could sneak through behind him. His work defies pigeonholing in any genre: this is simply great writing from a master of his craft. Short sentences, paragraphs and, indeed, chapters give the feel of a thriller to some beautiful writing. McIlvanney is the original Scottish criminal mastermind.
