Stonemouth by Iain Banks

A pacy novel set in a small Scottish town run by two gangster families who enjoy a tenuous peace. The main character, Stewart, returns to the town for a funeral five years after he was run out of town by one of the gangster families for cheating on their sister. I enjoyed the grit of this novel and the plot is engaging but I am not sure if this is intended to be a thriller or a romantic novel - for me it wasn't quite either. A easy and unassuming novel but not outstanding.
