After his last blag, Ged Brennan's had enough. He sees young kids making big money. Ged wants some of that for himself but there's no way he's getting involved in clubs, drugs and topless bars. So when he's offered the clubland empire of an executed gangster, he passes the parcel to his sex-addicted cousin Moby. Mistake.
After Ratter's death, his common law widow, Margo, is told that her landmark project, a media village, is to be taken away from her. Mistake.
The council's regeneration committee headhunt Ged Brennan to steer the final stages of Margo's development. He's read with righteous horror the bold new plans to create a 'permissive' zone in clubland. The last thing on his mind is that it'll be anything to do with him. Mistake.
The result is an intrigue of Machiavellian proportions, with friends and relatives plotting against each other and ready to fight - to the death - for what's theirs.(20021018)
