Good Luck, Mister Cain

(The first book in the Harry Grant series)
A novel by

'A sleazy picture of the underside of London, written in expert, fast-moving prose.' - New York Times

'Very 1970s London wide-boy accepts contract and dodges like crazy thereafter. Reveals a world.' - The Times

'Good Luck Mister Cain is a delight ... a witty, rugged crime story.' - Daily Mirror

This iconic 1970s thriller features Harry Grant, a small-time crook making a living in the London underworld. Nothing too serious, nothing too dangerous - Harry is keen to maintain his clean record with the police.
When he hits a vein of luck in a backstreet poker game, he finds himself with the chance of a job that'll pay big money. But he's soon out of his league and he finds himself in competition with Mister Cain. And Mister Cain is a professional killer.

'Zestful first thriller ... catches the nervous tang and bloodshot quality of seedy London life.' - The Guardian

'Freeborn does to the world of petty criminals what Deighton did to the no-win lives of espionage agents.' - Publishers Weekly

'There is sex, murder, burglary, forgery, strippers, police corruption and the thrill of a car chase - all thoroughly enjoyable.' - Police Review
