"Now bereft of both youth and ambition, Detective Inspector Ray Lennox is recovering from a mental breakdown induced by occupational stress and cocaine abuse, and a particularly horrifying child sex murder case back in Edinburgh. On vacation in Florida, his fiancee, Trudi, is only interested in planning their forthcoming wedding, and a bitter argument sees a deranged Lennox cast adrift in strip-mall Florida. He meets two women in a seedy bar, ending up at their apartment for a coke binge interrupted by two menacing strangers. After the ensuing brawl, Lennox finds himself alone with Tianna, the terrified ten-year-old daughter of one of the women, and a sheet of instructions that make him responsible for her immediate safety." "Lennox takes her across the state to an exclusive marina on the Gulf of Mexico, and quickly suspects that he has stumbled into a hornets' nest: a gang of organised paedophiles, every bit as threatening as the monster that haunted him back in Edinburgh. His priority is to protect the abused girl, but can the edgy Lennox trust his own instincts? And can he negotiate her inappropriate sexuality, as well as his own mental fragility, while still trying to get to grips with the Edinburgh murder and the emotions it unleashes in him?"--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

Crime è decisamente uno strano romanzo. Ray Lennox è un poliziotto in vacanza a Miami con la futura moglie. La fine della vacanza e l’inizio di una grande storia coincidono con la partenza di Ray. Lennox è annoiato in quei giorni di vacanza patinata con la sua donna che, intanto, prepara meticolosamente i dettagli dell’imminente matrimonio. Lennox in pratica evade ed affronta Miami da solo, ma la Miami vera, quella fatta di crimini, come il titolo del libro, di debolezze e meschinità. E una notte in un bar incontra tre donne e va a casa di una di queste per un festino a base di cosa e sesso. Ma la presenza di Tianna, la figlia di una delle donne, una bambina resa donna dalla vita, cambia tutto per la ragazzina e per Ray. Il poliziotto lascia quindi il passo all’uomo ed al suo vissuto, con una storia di violenza e pedofilia subita da ragazzo che riemerge con forza durante la lettura. Crime è un buon romanzo, ma non un capolavoro, nulla di incredibile; perché paga le intermittenze del racconto e qualche insicurezza. Ma è godibilissimo. ( )

I just could not get into this book. It started off with all of the standards of an Irvine Welsh book, but it got, boring. Not something I expected from the author. The subject matter was also a little too disturbing. Heald way through I just decided to skip through the rest of the book. Definitely not one of his better books. At least not for me. ( )

He grows fond of Tianna.
With a little help from Uncle Chet, Trudi and some old friends Lennox is able to save the day.
He also has his own issues he is member of Narcotics anonymous, dealing with the death of his Father and the guilt he has for not rescuing his friend from abuse when they were young boys.

Overall a good read. ( )

Hard to read because of the crimes involved (sexual abuse of children) and the unsparing vivid portrayals of poor and/or criminal persons, but I couldn’t put it down. The character of the Edinburgh policeman is very well drawn, the plot is full of turns. ( )
