Meanwhile a low-life drug-dealer has a sudden change of heart as he takes revenge on his cheating partner in 'London Calling'. Find out how a victim of high school date rape takes the ultimate revenge and explore the grisly aftermath of a bank job with a crew who suspects one of their number has tipped off the police. And follow a performance-enhanced bodybuilder who loses control with bloody consequences in this collection of original novellas and short stories by Irvine Welsh's 'favourite British crime writer', Tony Black.
Tony Black is the author of 12 books, most recently The Last Tiger. The Tasmanian-set novel tells the story of the demise of the Tasmanian tiger.
Whitbread-winning author Paul Sayer called the novel, "A rare and heartfelt fable".
Barry Graham, Winner of the American Library Association book of the year, said The Last Tiger is "Tony Black's most brilliant and resonant novel so far".
