When the writing blows you away …

‘Dandy is small and chubby, clean-shaven with a neat Tony Curtis haircut and very small eyes. His suit is a herringbone check in black and white, double-breasted, the old style. His shirt is a strange shimmery orangey-red colour. He sports a puce handkerchief in his pocket and has a small green carnation in his buttonhole. But the main event is the tie. The tie is a swirl of what to Dandy appears to be muted shades of blue and yellow. It is actually red and blue with flecks of green. Dandy is colour-blind but no one has ever dared to tell him.’

The Long Drop, Denise Mina
