“The Unfaithful Seven” is light and fun story in the tradition of the British crime capers of the 1960’s. And brings to mind one of my favorite novels by James O Born titled “Walking Money.” The idea is if the money is stolen (or in this case a bribe) to whom does the money then belong? The politician, who abhorred Glasgow’s poor, worked for the rich and to himself one day be wealthy enough to retire to somewhere warm. As happens often in such literary situations, the poor guy wasn’t destined to last that long. He had no qualms about taking a bribe on a proposition that would have gotten through anyway. Louis has no qualms about taking the money back. The problem for Louis is to how to get it done so he sends he thugs who could “only charitably be described as ‘big boned.” (Kindle Location 401).

Smith’s humor is subtle. His characters are quirky and his insight into the setting unique. Smith’s narrative feels somewhat nostalgic. Had I ever been to Scotland, I’m sure there would be special insights that would add to the enjoyment. “The Unfaithful Seven” has the feeling of a crafty insider. ( )
