A novel by

 
 
'Mr Freeborn's beat may be the London of mobsters and petty crooks, but somehow he manages to write a kind of poetry about it.' - New York Times

'The plot is murkily impenetrable and somewhat implausible, but the pace is hot and Harry an engagingly ingenious villain.' - Times Literary Supplement

'The sights and smells of underworld London in the 70s.' - Express & News

Harry Grant - anti-hero of Good Luck Mister Cain - has been lying low in the States, living off a windfall that wasn't strictly speaking his. The prospect of a payday brings him back to London, but suddenly his friends are avoiding him.
It seems that Mister Cain wants his money back. And Mister Cain, a professional killer, is used to getting what he wants. Up against a grim deadline, Harry needs ten grand in ten days. The alternative is unthinkable.

'The exhilarating tale of Harry's tangling with the predators of London's underworld.' - London Evening News

'Rife with taut cynicism that is lightened by occasional shafts of humour.' - Publishers Weekly

'Brian Freeborn is a sort of English Damon Runyon, he has the slick lingo of the underworld down pat.' - Over 21
