Tom inherits a nightclub in a seaside resort after his uncle is killed by the mob. The family move there, but soon discover life in the sex and drug-crazed Seathorpe is very different. Randy, the young Jamaican deejay, takes the naive Tom under his wing, but tragedy hits the family as they take on the extortionists. Then a gang leadership challenge turns the resort into a nightmare when more gunmen are imported into the power struggle. Three of the younger members hold a secret. Action packed, adult themes, with strong language, this is not one for the prudish.
Michael Knell was born in southeast London. In the nineteen-fifties he attended Peter Symonds Public Grammar School in Winchester, and over the subsequent years of a much varied lifetime he has written countless articles, both for magazines and online, winning several awards.
He retired to Blackpool in 2001 to continue writing, including now his more lengthy novellas and books for publication. Some of his articles, mostly political ones, appear online weekly under the title: 'The Bitch!', and between 2001 and 2008, they were attracting in excess of 100,000 readers on the gay directory website: AstaBGay, with an additional unknown number wherever they were syndicated.
His first book: The Forces Of Grey, a story of the occult, was published in 2002 - and later republished, in 2006, in better quality by another publisher. Since then there has been: The Elephant's Nest (2006); DAMON - The Providence Of Pan (2009); and Brotherly Matters (2010), which is a stand-alone sequel to The Elephant's Nest.
