"Don't let the rather bland title put you off - this second novel by Dave Franklin is an impressive pacey read, spiced with ethical dilemmas as well as his earthy dialogue and humour." - Sunday Times
"Franklin's first novel, Looking for Sarah Jane Smith
, introduced his unique brand of bitter humour as he journeyed out of Wales into Aussie territory. In this new book, Franklin chooses to return to familiar territory, setting the novel in Portsmouth, on England's south coast. His raw-edged honesty and earthy humour combine to make a compelling portrayal of one man's undoing against a backdrop of murder, brutality and desperate love. It is a gritty and vicious novel with an unredeemable hero." - Post Newspapers
About the Author
Dave Franklin is the author of five novels - Looking for Sarah Jane Smith, To Dare a Future, Manic Streets of Perth, English Toss on Planet Andong & Girls Like Funny Boys.
With a politically incorrect take on life similar to Irvine Welsh, Christopher Brookmyre and Carl Hiaasen, Franklin's caustic brand of profanity-filled lad lit, which often centres on dysfunctional loners, is not for the easily offended.
