"Ian Rankin once explained to an interviewer (the head of the Indian Communist Party!) that crime fiction is a way of talking about social inequality. Ron Jacobs applies that same maxim to the Sixties... 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."

I guess I'm a latecomer to a mind such as yours, but, way better late, than never!
Right now I have no adequate words to describe how your piece spoke to me.
On this topic, on this very inauspicious day, we are on the same page.
