Product Description

Product Description

When a friend's sixteen-year-old daughter goes missing, investigative reporter Stephen Larkin is enlisted to help find her. Following a trail of warring drug dealers, child prostitution, and born-again Christian gangsters, it soon becomes clear that they are not the only ones looking for the girl, and that others don't care if she is found dead or alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Raw Shocker 6 Feb 2013
By Kay
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Candleland This is the first book by this author I've read and as a lover of crime thrillers I was in no way disappointed. The plot, about a search for a friend's missing daughter, moves at a fast pace with each discovery not only getting the searchers nearer their goal but also facing their own demons. The characters are larger than life on both sides of the coin and the horrors of what can happen to young people who run away to lose themselves in the big city are described with no punches pulled. A brilliant tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Brit Noir 21 April 2001
By A Customer
Stephen Larkin is down in London looking for a runaway girl. On the way he meets born again Christian gangsters, transexual prostitutes, lesbian pimps and vicious gangsters. Like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz he also learns the meaning of home. Brilliant. The best British crime novel published this year, if not the best crime novel, period.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Martyn Waites 3 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good all action novel which is quite enjoyable provided you suspend reality. The plot is unbelievable but that aside it's a good read and well paced.
