When the simple task of collecting a briefcase from a Northern courier in his London lock-up results in a dead Geordie gangster there’s only one thing that Kenny Rogan can do…dress up in drag and rob a jewellers with ‘Big’ Jim and hope everything turns out okay!
From the pen of Paul D Brazill comes a whole host of larger-than-life characters, a sharp plot and the kind of humour you wouldn’t let your granny read.
“Strap yourself in for a violent and funny ride full of thrills, spills and kills. It’s Brazill at his irrepressible best.” Nick Quantrill author of Broken Dreams, The Late Greats & Bang, Bang, You’re Dead!
“Sharp as a stiletto in a back alley, this is a muscular, outstanding London gangster novel told in a cockney accent. Brazill has caught both the feel of London’s underworld and its flavour. Like the offspring of a wild night out between The Stranglers and The Clash this pounds with music, contemporary cultural references and a real feel for the city. Funny, dark, vernacular and savage this novel leads you to a set of punches that would knock out a heavyweight and appropriately they’re not delivered according to the Queensberry rules.” Richard Godwin author of Apostle Rising and Mr Glamour
