No Smoke

Hugh Collins, Author Canongate Books $14 (256p) ISBN 978-1-84195-116-4
Reformed Glaswegian gangster Hugh Collins (he was released from prison in 1992 after serving 16 years for murder) has a two-part autobiography under his belt; his latest effort takes the form of a fast-paced, corpse-strewn crime novel full of '70s-style double-crossing rogues bantering and conning each other in thick vernacular. ""In an oot. Canny go wrang,"" you say? Old-timer Barney Boone finds out that plenty can go wrong as small-time thievery escalates into murder and mayhem in No Smoke, the first installment of a trilogy set in the underbelly of Scotland's grittiest city.
