About this book
Mass market paperback edition of Welsh's latest novel, which is again characterised by extremely black humour, bleak social realism and imagery which at times verges on the grotesque. Widely acclaimed by many as his best piece of work since the seminal "Trainspotting", it features one of the most singularly unpleasant protagonists in the whole of Scottish literature, and backed by a high-impact marketing campaign, could even be a No.1 paperback. ""Filth" is a masterpiece...squarely in the classic line of classic Scottish writing" "Independent".
With the festive season almost upon him, Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson is winding down at work and gearing up socially - kicking off Christmas with a week of sex and drugs in Amsterdam. There are irritating flies in the ointment, though, including a missing wife, a nagging cocaine habit, and a dramatic deterioration in his genital health.
