A Gift from Nessus

Eddie Cameron is a salesman for Rocklight Ltd., an electrical equipment firm in Glasgow, where he has been fiddling the firm's expenses. Eddie's life is in tatters - his wife hates him, and his violent temper has left his mistress teetering on the edge of sanity.
Rezension
There is a sense of moral growth in A Gift from Nessus that lifts it out of the ordinary . . . almost frighteningly truthful and moving The Times

Laidlaw and The Papers of Tony Veitch both gained Silver Daggers from the Crime Writers' Association.
