A raw, gripping fiction debut from Caspar Walsh, the acclaimed author of CRIMINAL
Caspar Walsh is a regular writer for Radio 4, with broadcasts including the sixties gangster story Vincent Vices Rainbow and the acclaimed feature-length docudrama The Prison Father, which was based on his own experience of prison life. He regularly runs writing workshops both in and out of prisons that help offending fathers and their families in the rehabilitation process.
'Walsh is the authentic literary voice of British gangland. His debut novel reveals the chilly, emotionally complex world of a career criminal. By turns violent, dramatic and powerfully compassionate, Caspar Walsh's thriller neither condemns nor romanticises its subject but treats it with honesty, humanity and flashes of unsentimental humour. Here is an author to watch - and read' * Andrew Taylor * 'Fast-paced and packed with razor-sharp dialogue, Walsh keeps the drama and tension building to the last page.' * The News of the World *
