The Usurper

(1988)
A novel by

 
In the walled City of London, life was one long round of high fashion, sex cabarets and fancy restaurants. The Working Class had never had it
so good.
Outside in the decaying suburbs, the non-working population watched TV, dodged the derros and the street scum, went to the Library-and dreamed of Usurping.
Usurping-killing someone else for their job-was the only way out of suburban deprivation. But there was a high failure rate.
So when Jim Demon s new girlfriend disappeared Up West, Demon and his dangerous mate Knife decided to make the risky journey into the Walled City themselves..
The Usurper is a powerful and compelling novel of the grim, violent Britain of tomorrow -a land of shocking contrasts barely one step removed from the reality of today.
