’A cryptic, fast-cutting thriller’ – Times Literary Supplement

’Pressingly relevant...Brond is a marvellous villain’ – Sunday Herald

'An intense thriller ... an analysis of how cynically the secret British state responded in the 1970s and early 1980s to radical Scottish nationalism’ – Scotland on Sunday

’A novel which would seem significant whenever it had been written’ – Allan Massie

’A fierce writer, devoting an equal ferocity to love as to depravity’ – The Guardian

Voted one of the 100 best Scottish books of all time by Edwin Morgan.

After witnessing the mysterious Brond push a child off Kelvingrove Bridge, student Robert is drawn into Brond’s plan to trap a dangerous IRA killer. Brond is a high-octane page-turner, full of political intrigue, a tale of evil and exploitation in the nightmarish landscape of a Glasgow where nothing is as it seems. Lindsay’s writing is formidable and at its most thrilling and most unpredictable here.

Brond was adapted into a memorable three-part series for Channel 4, directed by Michael Caton-Jones, and starring John Hannah and Stratford Johns.

Frederic Lindsay, the author of over ten novels, including Brond, Kissing Judas and Death Knock, was born and brought up in Glasgow. After graduating with first-class honours in English Literature and Language he worked as a library assistant, a teacher and a lecturer before becoming a full-time writer in 1979. Frederic died on 30 May, 2013 in Edinburgh, aged 79.
