I'm almost afraid to ask what the Gen-X lifestyle means in reference to Garnethill. Drugdealing, slacking, casual adultery? I mean, I'd love to take the credit, but I don't think my generation invented those ;).

Another series that has a similar Gen-X feel to Garnethill, though funnier and by no means as dark, definitely hard-boiled at least in the later books, is Val McDermid's Kate Branigan series. Although I believe the author, like Mina, is a Scot, the books are set in Manchester with a lot of detail about the British music business and the Manchester club scene.
