When you see the sun rise in Paignton it looks like a collapsed lung filling up with blood.
Low life characters, grimy watering holes, seedy nightclubs and dingy brothels, a private investigator or two, a midget and a pornographer, teenage strippers and prostitutes, a beating, a stabbing and lots more. Joe Rey is on a case and plenty of blood is going to get spilled.
Wet-Look, a disgraced ex-cop and the other PI in town offers Joe some sage advice……….
“Paignton’s a selfish, dirty town……The only way to survive in this town is to corrupt yourself.”
Fantastic writing, brutal imagery, tremendous turns of phrase with an interesting story – Joe doing some dirty work and travelling from A to B to C, with casualties every step of the way. I did get a tad confused at the plethora of low lives we encountered in such a short book – is there no-one decent in Paignton? But overall an enjoyable journey. 44 gritty pages of prose – my kind of book, even if I did need to shower afterwards to try and rid some of the Paignton grime from my pores.
I’m looking forward to reading more from Tom Leins in the future.

Check this out, can't recommend Tom's work highly enough. I understand there's more to come, and you'd best believe I'll be here waiting when it arrives!
