Product Description

Review

'Scully initiates profound moral investigations into the lives of his characters, whose dramas evolve from the villains' pubs, canal towpaths and deprived housing estates of the West Midlands' -- Nicholas Royle

'Scully's stories sift the shifting sediment of the Midlands, bringing to the surface the lives of the marginalised, the criminalised and the downtrodden with an unflinching yet compassionate eye. His characters trail across the Birmingham night like tracer bullets, their momentary brightness leaving an after-image as haunting and as memorable as any in contemporary noir fiction' -- Nick Barlay

'You want it down and dirty? Up the arse or right between the eyes? Then Scully's your man' -- John Harvey

From the Publisher

'Mick Scully is a dark new talent. Little Moscow is full of shocking stories with characters who are disturbingly familiar' Jake Arnott

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Chris on 5 Oct 2007
Format: Paperback
A thrilling debut. Scully has a wickedly dark sense of humour which is evident throughout all the stories in the book, even the most distressing and macabre, making this collection of short stories an absorbing read which I recommend highly.

Themes such as the consequences of crime and and what drives people to extreme behaviour are of obvious interest to the author and they are explored with perception and at times a menacing intensity.

Scully appears to have a real affection and empathy for many of the characters, some feature several times and despite the dark nature of many of the stories Scully has the ability to make us sympathise with even the most depraved of characters. Some of the most chilling tales have a tragic poignancy which is touching. I really enjoyed this set of short stories and look forward to reading more from this talented writer.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Peter on 14 July 2007
Format: Paperback
A very strongly and tightly written collection of short stories centred around a Birmingham bar frequented by criminals who come from an alarmingly wide range of backgrounds. The plots keep you pinned to the pages, never let you relax and continually surprise. Many of the characters are truly terrifying creations, none of whom you would want to even spot at a distance in or around the city! There are also a few common threads and characters throughout which bind 'Little Moscow' into a thrilling volume. A really great debut!

Format: Paperback
Scully has an eye for the disturbing and seedy side of Birmingham. His characters are real and dangerous. His stories sharp and vivid.
I'm looking forward to more from this new talent.
