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

Synopsis

The Little Moscow, a shady basement bar at the side of the Grand Union canal in Birmingham, stamping ground for thieves, gangsters and conmen a?? plus some of the citya??s more glamorous creatures. Blue-skinned Nathan, a hardknock tattooist, refuses to pay Crawforda??s protection racket. Nearby, a refugee from Middle Eastern wars finds a body hanging from a lamppost and becomes entangled with a goodtime girl called Veronica and an apartment decorated with abstract art. Roles get reversed, debts get claimed and colours collide a?? while two would-be Andy Warhols make away with incriminating evidence. These stories revolve around the Little Moscow bar in subtle, surprising ways to form a powerfully impressionistic whole. Scully brings a literary virtuosity to the landscapes of urban realism, fuelling a noir mythology with dreams of power, riches and sex. This auspicious collection draws darkly criminal tales from a modern citya??s mix of cultures.
