Am loving Tim Willocks books, this one is the sequel to Bad City Blues. I think Mr.Willocks is a very dark character to be able to create the character of Clarence Jefferson! (No offence-meant in the nicest of ways ) even the hero of these books is flawed in ways I won't go into so as not to spoil the plot. The characters in both books are deep and thoroughly rendered warts and all, though mostly warts :). A great joy to read though and every page makes you want to get on to the next!

I enjoyed rereading this again Tim Willocks is a superb writer and he gives his characters a rich darkness that's thoroughly enjoyable. Redemption may be possible for some but to be honest you don't care your just glad you didn't meet them!

In keeping with his first outing in Bad City Blues, in which he was forced to go head to head with the juggernaut that was infamous law enforcement officer, Captain Clarence Jefferson, sometime psychiatrist Eugene `Cicero' Grimes is reluctantly compelled to step into the breach once more as he finds himself enmeshed within the web spun by the machiavellian machinations of the giant fat man.

The story is, as might be expected from anyone familiar with Willocks' work, gut wrenching, visceral stuff characterized by the odd philosophical rumination between lulls in the carnage. Perhaps, it's this seemingly odd juxtaposition of musings on the mysteries of existence and the meaning of life and the frenetic action the major players are forced to engage in by the dark, primal forces that drive them that explains the book's attraction. It's brilliantly written, compellingly page-turning stuff!
