    1. Πρόκειται για το δεύτερο βιβλίο της Τριλογίας του Υποκόσμου της Γλασκώβης. Το πρώτο βιβλίο, με τον τίτλο "Ο αναγκαίος θάνατος του Λιούις Γουίντερ", το οποίο διάβασα τον Νοέμβριο του 2014, με έμπασε με τον καλύτερο τρόπο στον σκοτεινό κόσμο του εγκλήματος στην πόλη της Γλασκώβη [...]


    2. Synopsis/blurb/reviewReview’How a Gunman Says Goodbye is even better than its remarkable predecessor . . . The author is already being hailed as a new star of tartan noir and if the third book in this trilogy can maintain the impetus of the first two the existing clan of Scottish writers may have to look to their laurels’ Daily Express'You know how among all the kids acting tough at school there is one that stands out, the only one who convinces? Malcolm Mackay is that man. His characteristi [...]


    3. Very much a continuation of the first book with the added benefit of a love interest for the gunman and an ageing other gunman who is getting too old for the job. Think you do need to read them in order but if you like the first one, you'll love this one. Eagerly await the third instalment which is published in January.


    4. Δεν το συνηθίζω αυτό, να διαβάζω μονοκοπανιά τα βιβλία μιας τριλογίας, αλλά το πρώτο μ' άρεσε πολύ, και το δεύτερο, παρότι φτιαγμένο με τα ίδια συστατικά, με άρεσε ακόμη περισσότερο. Η κλιμάκωση της έντασης εξαιρετική, ο ρυθμός κοφτός, σαν εναγώνιες ανάσες. Το στιλ με τα πολλά [...]


    5. Malcolm Mackay's writing talent isn't in his amazing ability to get inside the minds of the most hardened criminals, it's his wonderful ability to make us actually sympathize with them and, in some cases, even like them."How a Gunman Says Goodbye" is, I discovered, book two in a three-book series set in the underbelly of Glasgow, Scotland. I did not read the first book in this Glasgow Underworld Trilogy, "The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter", (an oversight I will correct soon), but I was somehow [...]



    6. Book two in the Trilogy.Same Characters, Same Setup, Same Style.I was interested to see the average rating on this site. This book is nudging slightly ahead of the first book, which is interesting.I got a lot of enjoyment from the first book. It had a unique style, got into the heads of the underworld characters, explained a lot about the way crime works that seemed real.This is very much in the same vein but I felt it was treading water a touch. There is one event in this book. Frank, the agein [...]


    7. This is the second book in The Glasgow Trilogy, following The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter. That title character, Lewis Winter, was a necessary sacrifice two months before the present action, in what would be only the first step in an all-out war between crime syndicates the likes of which hadn’t been seen for decades.From the publisher: Frank MacLeod is one of the best at what he does. Thoughtful. Efficient. Ruthless. But with his health failing him, how long before he’s no longer of use [...]


    8. I enjoyed this book, but I must agree with a criticism I have heard about this author. He is Scottish, lives in Scotland, books are set in Scotland but he makes errors in using English law when it should obviously be Scottish law. One example is he talks abouta Coroner but there is no Coroner in Scotland. Sloppy. Apart from this it is a good story


    9. Μ'αρέσει παρα πολύ ο τρόπος γραφής του.Πάρα πολύ.Κοφτός σαν ξυράφι.


    10. In deel twee van de zogenaamde Glasgow-trilogie gaat Mackay op hetzelfde elan verder (zie ook /review/show). Ook het verhaal begint waar deel 1 eindigde en het is eigenlijk alsof je gewoon het volgende hoofdstuk leest.Ook hier eerst een personagelijst: nog wat uitgebreider want er komen nog wat personages bij. Maar ook de personage die in deel 1 het loodje legden worden nogmaals voorgesteld (wat doet vermoeden dat ze toch nog op één of andere manier aan bod komen).Het verhaal begint met een sp [...]


    11. "The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter" was a sure fire 5 star read for me but this one didn't enthral me from the off. Initially I struggled with keeping track of who everyone was - thank goodness for the character listing which I could - & so often did - refer to! What I liked once again though, was that it felt, to me at least, that things were happening over a short time period & also getting the sense of knowing what was going through the characters minds, of seeing how they reacted a [...]


    12. This follows on directly from the first in the trilogy, with the same setting and individuals/gangs. Wonderful creation of suspense, and overriding theme of trust, or more likely, the lack of trust. So many twists and turns in the plot - definition of a page-turner, with crisp writing, and believable, however unpleasant, characters.


    13. For decades Frank Macleod was the best killer in the business, but now he's getting old. Once a legend, a botched job changes everything. This is noir at it's finest. The staccato style of writing tales a bit of getting used to, but the more I read the more engrossed I became. A fun, dark read. Four and a half stars.


    14. There just seems to be something morally abhorant about rooting for a professional killer (much less two of them), but I find myself doing just that. Again. Two thirds of the way through the trilogy and there's no turning back now. I have to find out what path Calum ends up following. Oops! I've said too much


    15. Every once in a while I find a book that pushes everything else into the background as I feverishly race to finish it. How a Gunman Says Goodbye was that sort of book. I can't wait to go back and read the first book in the series.


    16. I was reluctant to read this book. I know the author's style, and didn't feel like it at the time. But I wanted the resolution of the loose ends in the first book. The author took advantage of my curiosity and delivered a bang of action and plot twist. No turning back now. I was hooked.Alas, the pace slowed to a crawl. The aftermath of the story arc took the remainder of the book. Not much action then. In addition I found the sub-plots irritating. I suppose they set up the third book and cannot [...]


    17. Book 2 in the Glasgow Trilogy is terrific. Answers the question: Where do you end up when your life is your work?







    18. Mr. MacKay's clear, crisp writing style keeps the plot moving and the suspense taut. I enjoyed it very much.



    19. Another great noir from this author. Can't wait for the third in the trilogy. I can't believe I become so invested in the characters.



    20. How A Gunman Says Goodbye is the follow-up to Malcolm Mackay’s exceptional debut novel The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter forming the first two instalments of his Glasgow Trilogy ( the final book, The Sudden Arrival of Violence due to be published January 2014) , and I really don’t know what I can add to the universal praise Mackay has attracted so far. With How A Gunman Says Goodbye, Mackay merely adds to the kudos of his first, with another taut and uncompromising but utterly compelling r [...]
