Robin Llewellyn is a private eye. More or less. Part time really, while he gets on with the full-time job of drinking himself to death on the mean streets of Bristol. He's one step away from the gutter when he gets one last case. A case that smells of money. A woman wants to set her husband up for blackmail. All Robinhas to do is find a hooker to the job, and collect his money. the maybe he'll be back in the game. Orat least have enough to pay for another drink and another bet. If only life that simple. The last Llanelli train drags the private eye novel into the 21st century and some very dark places indeed. Mixing purest noir with some very black comedy, the Last Llanelli train offers an unforgettable portrait of a man at the very end of his tether.
