Jack Stone is a man with a past and a history. He knows people from the shadows of society and isn't afraid of them. In Northern Grit he is called upon to help a friend find a lost sister. Stepping into those shadows, Stone becomes involved in the underbelly of Newcastle's adult scene and is up against villains who have no regard for the law, and even less for those who cross them. Stone though is a tough hard boiled ex regiment man who keeps his word, even if it means putting his life on the line.Steve Lockley and Steve Savile have conjured up a Get Carter for the present day with a revisit to Newcastle in all its grimy, and gritty splendour.

Northern Grit
Another reviewer likened Northern Grit to Get Carter, and I have to agree; this is dark, grimy goings on in the underbelly of the city, with ruthless criminals and desperate heroes, both of whom do what is necessary.

The taut, pacy prose is sharper for the threat of violence that pervades every chapter - the actual physical count being less than you feel has occurred - and Jack's gamble on his enemies' actions and indifference to his own survival lead to a classic climax.

Northern Soul
Jack is back, in a full length novel now - packed with action and double-crossing and no-good villainy.
A chance intervention to help an old friend results in Jack taking on a favour for a local lowlife; from there the story quickly escalates and Jack finds himself racing to find his quarry before the less savoury members of the underworld find out and beat him to it.

Family secrets, dark dealings thought long buried and plans within plans abound here, in a gritty and sharp tale that also gives you more of Jack and his past, his family and the things that matter to him.

This is developing into a brilliantly realised series, with Jack's no-nonsense, human approach to dealing with the criminal underworld at the fore.

Northern Fire
Short and very enjoyable - Northern Fire introduces us to Jack Stone: loyal to his friends, determined in his actions, tough enough to win most fights, and clever enough to avoid having to get into trouble in the first place.

To rescue a friend, Jack must visit an old enemy. Using his wits, he must keep everyone happy and save his own skin. Fast-paced, colourful, and tense - this is a brilliant read.

Lovely gritty noir set in a location which has up until now been very under used .
If you liked Get Carter ( the Michael Caine version not the poor remake ) then this is for you

Good read, reminiscent of Robert B. Parker's Spencer but in Great Britain. Worth a read.

I don't generally go in for first person or crime fiction, but this book kept me turning pages through the end. Extremely enjoyable and highly recommended.

"British Noir" seems to be the best label to apply to Jack Stone. This is a delicious gritty street read. Enjoyed it a lot. Well worth a look.
