Having made his fortune through a sophisticated people smuggling operation based in Paris, Klarkey unleashes a tidal wave of revenge upon the unsuspecting criminals of Britain . From Aberdeen to Portsmouth , London to Paris or Iraq to Spain , the action in Klarkey's War takes place in a contemporary world, where international borders are crossed more easily than ever before. Klarkey's War examines public opinion towards asylum seekers, paedophiles, criminality and the prison service. Klarkey's War urges us to consider our own feelings towards criminals and how we define criminality. Does the existing overcrowded prison system work, or are Klarkey's drastic actions more appropriate and effective? Is anyone sufficiently justified to kill, irrespective of how despicable their targets? Does the UK 's penal system provide punishment that fits the crime, or could there be another way?
