Reissue of the first book from the British crime writer whom Ian Rankin would later call 'The Godfather of British Noir'.
The hero of this tense thriller has been lying low in the urban decay of south-east London, waiting to be called on for his 'job'. Now his enemies have smoked him out and it is time for him to act. He says he'll stop at nothing - and he means it. Is he a crook or a terrorist? What is he about to do? 'Britain seen through a gun-sight,' said the Literary Review.
This is a book that will keep you up into the small hours.
