A low-life drug-dealer has a sudden change of heart as he takes revenge on his cheating partner in London Calling, the title story of this collection of original short stories by Irvine Welsh's 'favourite British crime writer', Tony Black. See a loose-moralled lothario get his painful comeuppance in Pretty Boy and laugh at the antics of a pathetic patter-merchant in the anti-romance Jailbait Stalemate. You can also enjoy a short tour of the seedier side of Edinburgh with reluctant investigator Gus Dury in the original short-story version of Last Orders. These Scots-themed stories are collected here for the first time in a 10,000-word anthology. London Calling originally appeared in Esquire Magazine whilst the rest of the collection featured in the Best of British Crime, Requiems for the Departed, Protectors, and Crime Factory.
