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

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.
