A novel by

 

"A gem of a book."
Val McDermid


Frankie Bosser has been lying low in Italy for three years after the accidental shooting of a policeman in England. When he hears about his father's sudden death, he decides to risk all to return home for his funeral. On arrival, he finds out that his father was actually the victim of a beating, so he decides to hang around to see if he can find the person responsible. While killing time with old friend Jason Campbell, Frankie realises that he won't have to look very far for the killer at all. And when their two worlds collide the only outcome can be a bloody mess.

'A gem of a book.' Val McDermid.

'I loved it. Shows that 'Smalltime' was no one-off.' Ian Rankin.

'Grimly comic.Ten times more relevant than any judical rant about our troubled times. Quite exceptional.' Philip Oakes. Literary Review.

'The prose is tight and economical, but the effect he creates is one of poison and menace. Brilliant.' Yorkshire Post.

'A powerful and authentic tale of greed and revenge in the suburban underclass. This is contemporary crime-writing at its very finest.' Crime Time.
