Ten Bells at Robbie's

A Novella by

A Scots ex-con finds himself under pressure to take part in an armed robbery when his bi-polar 'uncle' stops taking prescribed medication in an original short story, Ten Bells at Robbie's, by 'Irvine Welsh's favourite British crime writer', Tony Black. Follow the antics of the same pair some time later, in the aftermath of the hold up, in The Gift of Family, another comical short story set in the festive season. Originally featured in Crime Factory Magazine, both tales are told in the raw Scots tongue.
Praise for Tony Black:

'Tony Black is one of those excellent perpetrators of Scottish noir ...
a compelling and convincing portrayer of raw emotions in a vicious milieu.'
-The Times

'If you're a fan of the Ian Rankin, Denise Mina and Irvine Welsh this is
most certainly one for you.'
-The Scotsman

'Black renders his nicotine-stained domain in a hardboiled slang that
fizzles with vicious verisimilitude.'
-The Guardian

'Ripping, gutsy prose and a witty wreck of a protagonist makes this
another exceptionally compelling, bright and even original thriller.'
-The Mirror

'This up-and-coming crime writer isn't portraying the Edinburgh in
the Visit Scotland tourism ads.'
-The Sun

'Comparisons with Rebus will be obvious. But that would be too easy
... Black has put his defiant, kick-ass stamp on his leading man, creating
a character that deftly carries the story through every razor-sharp twist
and harrowing turn.'
-Daily Record
