Seventies Series for sale!

"Ian Rankin once explained to an interviewer (the head of the Indian Communist Party!) that crime fiction is way of talking about social inequality. Ron Jacobs applies that same maxim to the Sixties (not to mention dope, guns, f*cking, and imperialism) in his wonderfully noir trilogy of those exhilarating and troubled times. And what Rankin does for Edinburgh, Jacobs amply illuminates for the Movement. Much much more than ripping yarns (though they are that too), from a master who's been there, done that, and lived to tell a tale or two."
